My Mom and I flew out to Billings, MT on Tuesday August 14th and rented a car for a week to go explore the Great Out West. We visited the Battle of Little Big Horn on the first day and ended up in Buffalo, WY by the second night just missing Longmire Days which was the previous weekend. We then drove through the beautiful country side into Cody, WY by the third day and took in a rodeo of coarse. Our fourth day landed us in Jackson Hole, WY after driving through half of beautiful Yellowstone and Grand Tetons National Parks. We ended up crashing out there for a couple nights as Mom came down with pneumonia. After she stared to feel a little better, we continued on back north through the Tetons and Yellowstone checking out Old Faithful and running with the buffalo. We then had a close call as we coasted down Bear Tooth Pass in the dark and almost on fumes but found gas and a nice hotel in Red Lodge, MT for our sixth night on the road. Then as our vacation time wound down, we headed back to Billings to catch a flight home on the 21st. We fell in love with the Rocky Mountains and the romance of all the rich history of the land. We met some wonderful people and had amazing mother/daughter bonding time. I feel so lucky to share this experience with my mom…..pneumonia and all.
