Summer Vacation - May 2013

We hit the road around 8:00a.m. Monday, Memorial Day, May 27.  Our first destination was
Yellowstone National Park  
 We were able to enjoy the wildlife, although no bears.
 We also took a 3/4 mile hike to the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone.  It was pretty cold and of course, I was ill prepared.  (Didn't realize that we were going to hike and of course didn't think about the temperature) :)

 This is called Lower Yellowstone Falls

Next, we took a little bit of a side trip to Byron, Wy.  This was a family history stop for Kerry.  
 This is taken in the Byron cemetery .  Kerry has several relatives including Grandpa Edward Denney's sister and his child.

 The Sidon Canal has family significance and Kerry wanted a photo of this sign that he could post on the internet when we get home.  There is one available, but it is not readable.
 We left Byron and drove to Lovell.  We had dinner at a local diner and then we took a drive over the mountain to Sheridan.  It was quite the drive!
We arrived at our hotel around 7:30 and enjoyed the pool and hot tub.  We had a great day.
