Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Cody, Wyoming

We didn't make it back to the midwest this holiday season-- travel costs are too high this year,

and work & school schedules made timing difficult (this is the thing people forget about clergy-- our time off is wholly different than most foks). So, we took a short family vacation the last few days, and went down to Cody.

The picture you see here was the view from our hotel room, on the outskirts of town (If you click on it, you can see more photos in the set).

We checked in Thursday, then spent a couple hours at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center. It's a cluster of museums (5 of them, actually!), and was very nice-- much smaller, of course, but I thought it (they) compared favorably with anything I visited back in Chicago. The tickets are valid for two days, which was good, because there really is too much to see in just one.

We also stopped by the local Episcopal church, but we didn't get to see the inside-- the buildings (both of them-- the original church is still on the property, alongside the current larger building) were locked up tight, both days we were there. I assume that everyone was off for the holiday week, just as we were.

On Friday we went back to the museum complex, and saw a lot more of it, though still didn't quite finish. We'll have to go back some time; we really enjoyed it.

We also made a short stop at a little yarn shop I spotted, where I bought some sock yarn to play with. It was a cute little shop, but the woman working that day was rather less than helpful; I can't say as I'd be in a hurry to return there.

Then we finished Friday night by catching a movie (Alvin and The Chipmunks-- utterly silly), at the old theatre in town.

Then we spent a lazy Saturday morning sleeping in. Even I slept late-- didn't get up until 7:30! The rest of the tribe stirred eventually, then we got packed up and went out for brunch before heading back home. A short little getaway, and we were glad to have it.

Sounds like a great little getaway! (It has been years since I've been through Cody, but I remember liking it...) Nice view from your hotel!

So glad you got away even if your trip was brief. Cody looks beautiful.
