We left Yellowstone and traveled along the Beartooth Scenic Highway up to Cooke City, MT and then turned toward Cody on the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway. We made a few stops to enjoy the scenery. This was the weekend of a huge Harley-Davidson bike rally in Red Lodge, MT so we encountered hundreds of bikers along the way.
The highlight of the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway was stopping at Dead Indian Pass – 8,000 feet above sea level. There we saw some amazing views and a bunch of chipmunks. It was 59 degrees F up there and with a stiff wind…it felt much colder.
We arrived in Cody around 5 PM, checked into our hotel, and made arrangements for dinner. We enjoyed an “all-you-can-eat” buffet of “country food” and then returned to the hotel to chill and/or swim. During this time, a brave group of camper volunteers (Robert, James, and Andrew) helped leaders Mark and Howard do all the laundry for 30 people. It was no easy task, but it’s done!
And that’s the story on another MTA day!
