I wake up to the most beautiful red sky sunrise. Unfortunately, “Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning.” A cool front has come through and it is windy. It is a good day for an inside activity, not fishing.

We visit the Buffalo Bill Historical Center. This is another great museum. We could spend several days here.

We visit the firearms gallery. John is more interested in this than I am but I enjoy the displays. We start our tour at the shooting gallery. I buy lots of tokens. It is a good time. I hit almost everything I aim at. I know my aim is not this good.

We move to the western art gallery. This exhibit is smaller but there are paintings and sculptures by all of the big name western artists. At a computer, I make my own masterpiece.

We move to the Yellowstone Natural History gallery. We follow a circular stairway downward. At each level, we see the plant and animal life of another Yellowstone environment. There is a stamping station at each level for me!

An announcement is made. Three raptors are in the sculpture garden for us to view. There is a peregrine falcon, a turkey vulture and a great horned owl. Injuries prevent them from being released into the wild.

We have had a full morning. The Buffalo Bill gallery is closed for renovations. We miss the Plains Indian Peoples Gallery. This is a big museum.

We head back to the campground. I do the laundry. John cooks rice and oatmeal for the next leg of our trip.
