Devil's Tower to Cody
Ms. Dolphin watched people climbing Devil's Tower while her people walk around Devil's Tower. It was a nice walk. If you would like more information on Devil's Tower you can click on this link. http://www.nps.gov/deto Ms. Dolphin agreed with her team that a new road was in order for the day. She thought that going over the Bighorn Mountains using Alt14 would be a fun adventure. We all enjoyed the spectacular views going down the 10-13% grade switchbacks at 20 miles an hour. After about 8 miles, Ms. Dolphin's brakes started to fail and Lew pulled off the road and they made a lovely supper while my brake fluid stopped boiling. It was a hot, scary trip to the bottom. All of us agree to never go over 13% grade for more than a mile. Cody was a good place to stop for the night and exercise.
