On August 15, we started the drive into Yellowstone. On the way we past by the Buffalo Bill Dam. It was Great Dam Day so we stopped to look around.
We didn't take the old dam hike but looked around the Visitor's Center and, as you can see, got pictures of the two sides. The construction is a concrete arch-gravity dam on the Shoshone River in the state of Wyoming.
When it was built, this dam was the tallest in the world. It is now on the National Register of Historic Places and is very well maintained.
There were 2 enthusiastic guys on small watercraft having a field day on the high water. It looked very refreshing! On our way back to the car, we stopped at a tent where ladies were selling baked goods to raise money. We bought 2 large chocolate chip cookies to munch on as we drove. They were the best cookies we've had since Christine's famous cookies. We waited about an hour and after we ate them we discussed whether we should turn around and just buy all she had!
And we arrived...around 3:00pm at our favorite place, the 2nd home, the Caretaker's Cabin. We are now unloaded and hard at work and play. We have a female roommate, Emily, but she will be leaving to return back to PA on August 27th.
