Day of endurance: Left Shoshone, Wyoming (3 miles from Yellowstone) this morning at 40 degrees – arrived in Miles City, Montana this evening. Long, hot, weary day – saw 102 degrees. Big Horn Mountains w/the snow – beautiful (plus, loved the cooler air!) Sweltering, hot and not much to see once left Big Horn. Wind blew sideways although didn’t cool; only more hot breeze.
Shopped in Cody, Wyoming for blue turquoise and ate at Hotel Irma where Queen Victoria donated the cherry bar. Hotel built in 1902 – very cool décor.
Loved staying in one place for four whole days and nights at the Shoshone Lodge. Delectable food, great out-west service, and a successful horse ride. Doesn’t get much better than that!
“In quietness and trust is your strength…Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!” (Isaiah 30:15b–18).
