Yellowstone picnic at Buffalo Bill reservior st pk lake

Yellowstone Tracks of the StoneBear

Cody, Wyoming Labor Day 08

Staying an extra day in Cody to rest up and see some local sights.

Past noon drove out to Buffalo Bill resevrior / state park for a picnic samich. This is Buffalo Bill country. Later on if there's enough time today will stop at the Buffalo Bill Historical center.

But for now this is a beautiful lake / reservoir with the Absoroka mountains on the northwest side of the lake. The beauty of the west is remarkable

Cody is located at the western edge of the Bighorn Basin, a depression surrounded by the Big Horn, Owl Creek, Bridger, and Absaroka ranges. At the western edge of Cody, a deep canyon formed by the Shoshone River provides the only passage to Yellowstone's Eastern Entrance. At its mouth and rising above Cody are Rattlesnake Mountain on the north side and Cedar Mountain on the south side. Most of Cody has a spectacular view of Heart Mountain, whose 8000 ft (2,400 m) peak is 9 miles (14 km) directly north of Cody, and the Carter Mountains, which form a line with peaks at about 12,000 ft (3,700 m), some 15 miles (24 km) to the south.
