One day we went out the Yellowstone east entrance road toward Wapiti and Cody, Wyoming. Along the way, we kept thinking we were in the middle of an old western movie, because around every corner was a scene like this:
One late evening as we pulled into our park, the moon was rising over the hill behind our coach. Not a super moon, not an eclipse, but it was sure close and bright!
