Leg #6

We left SD and headed to Cody, MT. By the time we were about 2 hours outside of Cody, I think we were all ready to get out of th car. The girls have continued to do really well. We had such a great time driving through Big Horn and the rest of WY, that we decided to slow down a bit and enjoy the drive. Our original plans were to be in Cody in time to take Hannah Gray to a rodeo, but she wss enjoying th ride as well, looking for more wildlife. We got to see 4 moose in a field and she was completely stoked about it. She called them "mooSsss" as opposed to (moo, moo which is a cow). We do have pictures, but I am not working from our laptop as it broke a couple days ago (which is also why I'm just now doing some posting).

So we arrived in Cody and pulled into our hotel to be be greeted by about 4 ambulances, 2 firetrucks and a fleet of cop cars. There were some hazmat materials outside and our minds were beginning to wonder what was going on. Ethan called to see if we could check in and we were informed that we couldn't check in and that our reservation had been cancelled. Seriously?? The town was BOOKED, not a single open room. We managed to find another room, but not until 9:30 or so. We were honestly beginning to wonder if someone had been killed at the hotel. We found out later that there had been some type of a chemical problem with the cholorine in th pool room and that several people were taken away in the ambulances. Apparently some other hotel guests were feeling sick later b/c we saw ambulances return later. So I guess it was a good thing that we didn't stay there or that we didn't go to the rodeo to return even later and missed out on finding a room at all!

Ethan's laptop broke a couple days ago, so I don't have the ability to post pictures right now. Once I do, I will put some up.
