Bighorn MTYeah, it was another year where we hated all those chicks with their pectorals bare, and their t-back bikini’s with tattoos like Cher!

After all the bikes and 80s hair bands on Friday (August 10th) we started the return trip to Portland. We headed out via I-90, US14, & US14A. Since part of the Posse was meeting up from Rapid City we didn’t get started until about 9am. The wind was blowing us around quite a bit on I-90. On US14A, went over the Bighorn Mountains. Most of the Indian combatants and their families went into the Bighorns after the Custer fight in 1876. It’s a beautiful place – the highway snakes between mountains over 10,000 feet high. Our motel stay in Cody was with out any disasters. We had heard of several motels occupied by degenerate members of a road crew – there was proliferate drinking, swearing and fighting until the local police arrived sometime in the late hours — Wait that was our Posse!

Cody is named for Buffalo Bill Cody. There is a Buffalo Bill Museum, but we didn’t visit it… Cody is just an hour from the East entrance of Yellowstone.

Cody is the transition point between the forested mountains of northwest Wyoming and the plains of the Bighorn Basin. Spectacular scenery in all direction of Cody, the Beartooth Mountains to the north, the Absaroka Range to the west and Wapiti Valley to the south.
The previous night we had locals invite us to Wyoming’s Rib and Chop House. This great little restaurant packs in the crowds. Famous for their award-winning baby back ribs and incredible steaks along with the 26 oz. margaritas! If you have not been to Cody its just another reason for making the trip to Yellowstone.

Devils TowerThe next morning, Thursday (August 9th) took us to the “tower”.  On the way there we went through Hewlett, WY which is a very busy place during the Sturgis Rally.  Especially on no panties Wednesday!   We decided to stop in for cool refreshment only to learn we missed the festivities from the day before!  It’s all about timing!!  It was again hot walking around… 

We pulled out of Hewlet, with all our underwear for Devils Tower. The ride has lots of long sweeping curves and beautiful scenery, amazing country and riding!
It was a mob scene at Devils Tower entrance just before entering the park.  We all enjoyed the view while taking some photo’s of the tower. We stopped at the prairie dog field and lined up the bikes for group photos.  Stopped at the grocery store to hydrate at the exit of the park. After awhile it was time to head back to Spearfish. 

Several of our posse headed back into Sturgis for more of the One Eye “popping” Jacks gals in chaps & leather tour.
