Cody, Wyoming

We left Island Park last Thursday morning. It was a really neat drive through Yellowstone..

Barb and Bob, Barb and Roger and a new couple, Don and Susie were already at the park.  Mac, Lynette, Chuck & Kathy and John and Bridget arrived later afternoon. It was great to see everyone and get caught up on what has been going on with our friends.

Although the campground is all gravel, we are surrounded by incredible beauty..

We have kept busy seeing some sights, but have also chilled out and visited, had a few happy hours, dinners and card games..

Tomorrow morning we will head to Gillette, to attend and work with staff for the Escapees Escapade.  Several couples left today, as they have to start a day earlier.  We are looking forward to this event, that our friends Bob & Molly are directors for this year. They sure have been working very hard to make this a huge success.  Can’t wait!!
