Cody WY is a Fun Place!

As much fun as it is at Grandma's cabin in the mountains of Yellowstone, we all agreed that being on the farm in Cody is one of the best parts of the trip.

Its beautiful and open down there... with deer, elk, antelop, and other things to see and explore.

Town is fun, too... but alittle too... touristy now.

Its also fun to look around all the old junk that Grandpa collected out in the shop and barn.

This dude is HEAVY! I don't think these early chainsaws could be called "labor saving".

After the first week of hunting, 6 bucks and 3 does had been taken off Grandma's farm, and it didn't even phase the animals.

Every night they'd run back onto the place and bed in the feed.

These deer have more grain in them than any cattle in the Bighorn Basin!

Hunting season brings other problems - poachers! Someone drove the canal road one night we were there and dumped a couple does they'd shot. The only took a few parts of meat.

Fish-n-game came by to look, but said they couldn't do much...

If you look closely, you can see bones from the PREVIOUS year when other animals were dumped in this EXACT same spot.
