July 30, 2014 - baskets & Yellowstone

Yellowstone report - the rain ended and the boys were able to have their campfire calzones after all last night. Today they saw the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone - truly spectacular. They also followed some sauntering bison on the road for about half an hour, making for a long drive.

More beautiful baskets in Cody, and confirmation of another Plains gambling tray (rare!). I worked in the Resource Center/Gallery while Ann Marie was busy, here's my selfie reflection in the southwestern basketry case. Apache tray above, Akimel O'odham olla below:

In the evening, we went to the Draper Museum of Natural History for a reception, lecture and book-signing by Michael Leach, grizzly expert and former NPS ranger at Yellowstone. A dynamic and influential speaker.
