Cody, Wyoming is only 52 miles from the east entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Hubby and I stayed in Cody for all three of the days that we visited the park.

Yes, folks, that really is a black bear…guess we should invest in a zoom lens:
We saw lots of pronghorn antelope and buffalo in the beautiful Lamar Valley:
We drove through Clark Canyon and Dead Indian Pass. This pass is amazingly beautiful…well worth the drive! We also learned of the flight of the Nez Perce here…unbelievable!
As we were coming down the other side of the pass, we saw this mountain:
We later learned that it is called Heart Mountain. At the base of this mountain was a Japanese American confinement camp (a concentration camp used for the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII). There is an interpretative center there. Had we known, we would have visited the site.
