July Meeting and Tour – 7/20/2019

July 20

July Meeting and Tour

Museum of Flight and Aerial Firefighting, Greybull, WY

Saturday, July 20, 2019

Our Absaroka activity for July will be a drive south to the southern part of our Region to visit the Museum of Flight and Aerial Firefighting just outside Greybull, Wyoming.  The museum is dedicated to preserving the history of aerial firefighting and aircraft.  It’s a walking tour outside, so dress accordingly.

After checking out the vintage aircraft, for lunch we’ll return once again to Lisa’s Western Cuisine & Spirits in Greybull.  We’ve eaten there in the past (2013) and Lisa’s treated us well and the food was very good.

After the planned activities, you can return home the way we came, or if time permits, through beautiful Shell Canyon on US 14 to Interstate 90 north of Sheridan, Wyoming.  The route is called the Big Horn Scenic Byway, this is one of the most beautiful drives in our region if you’ve never done it.  Along the way there is an excellent stop at Shell Falls which is well worth the time and detour.  Returning to Billings this way is 188 miles and will take near 4 hours..
