The scenery leaving Cody today was dramatic and such a contrast to where we have been. Today our Eaglerider tour takes us through Yellowstone NP and we really only have time to scratch the surface, before teh Grand Tetons and onto Jackson Hole.
Today we only really had one activity pre-planned and that was a rafting trip down the Shoshone river on the edge of Cody in the morning. After that we just chilled and took in the Buffalo Bill Museum and wandered the streets of Cody.
Don’t you hate that feeling when it all goes to custard and all you can do is slide and watch it unfold. Today we were bitten by Beartooth Pass as we found the limit of the big Harley’s ground clearance.
Luckily we were able to pick the bike up and continue. Tomorrow is a day off in Cody which is good timing as Deb is a bit sore from our slide.
Another longer day with temps over 100F taking in Butte Montana and paying homage to Evil Knieval, open farmland, and the cool old westen Virgina City. Today’s destination is Red Lodge Montana.
It is really noticeable that we are moving out of the mountains as the temperature today rose quickly to over 30 degrees. Today we enjoyed just being out there and rolling through big sky Montana soaking in the landscape changes as the big Harley burbles underneath us.
I’m running out of adjectives. The scenery continues to amaze us and blow us away. This ride has been awesome.!
From Waterton we are only a short distance from the US border as we head to a small town I think I could call home … Whitefish. Today we rode through Glacier NP, and had lunch by Lake McDonald.
Today the scenery really started to change with the mountains looming and we were never that far from the beautiful aqua coloured rivers as we enter Jasper National Park. Today’s stops included the Spahats Falls, Avola, Rearguard Falls, and Mout Robson Park before getting to overnight accommodation at Jasper.
