  1. Super photo essay. We wanted to get back to Cody this summer but did not make it. Need to move it to the top of my list for spring.

  2. Thanks Neil, a trip to the museum is always worth it, no matter how many times a person has been there. It's really too big now to easily see in one day really.

    In fact, we didn't. We omitted the Draper Natural History Museum this time. We just didn't have the time.
