TRAVEL: trek america’s grand trek: cody, wyoming

travel - trekamericas grand trek - day 9 cody wyomingAfter avoiding last night’s thunderstorm, we all woke up to glistening sunshine, oh and a stink bomb prank. What a perfect start to the day!

Once our tent had been fumigated and packed up, we all had breakfast before packing the van (as you all know, this is always our morning routine) before heading to our next destination, Cody – yee ha!

linebreak On the way we stopped for a short hike at Shell Falls. It was such a peaceful place. It really makes you appreciate the great outdoors.

linebreakWe then headed to what I can only describe as one the cheesiest ‘shoot outs’ ever. Set in the middle of Cody’s streets were a group of questionably dressed actors screaming and shouting at each other. Amidst the chaos and bad acting, they suddenly got their pistols out and started ‘shooting’. It was so terribly funny, but it was also a free experience and gave us an insight into America’s culture.

linebreakWhen we finally arrived to camp, Steve (after hours of us begging him) made us an true American breakfast for dinner (because that’s how we roll). We all tucked into a variety of delicious pancakes such as blueberry, chocolate chip and banana. All topped with crispy bacon, Marc’s burnt scrambled egg and bacon syrup. Once we finished ‘breakfast’, we all washed up, got ready and went to a rodeo.

linebreakDid you know that Cody is the capital of rodeos in the world? The rodeo was surprisingly really good, and I was amazed to see children ride horses and work their way around the field so easily. This was also such a nice evening to chill and drink after a hectic couple of days. It was safe to say there were no thunderstorms in sight that night! The only negative thing about the rodeo was that we did feel bad for the bulls in the buckin’ bronco segment.

As soon as the rodeo finished, we went back to camp for a chilled evening, sans pranks and cornhole tournaments, ready for two days in Yellowstone!
