Sunlight and Crandall Country

A free talk by Bob Richard

Thursday, December 15, 2022
Noon–1 p.m.

Join us for the December presentation in our “Local Lore with Bob Richard” series of free talks hosted by our McCracken Research Library.

Bob shares photographs and stories from some of the most spectacular scenic areas anywhere, which just happen to be northwest of Cody: Sunlight Basin, the Clark’s Fork area, the Beartooths, Crandall, and Cooke City. Beautiful to look at plus wonderful for outdoor enthusiasts to explore. Photos include many by Bob’s father, Jack Richard, and by his cousin, Mack Frost.

With a wealth of knowledge about the Cody and Yellowstone National Park areas, Bob has a lifetime of stories to share with future generations. The “Local Lore with Bob Richard” series continues monthly throughout the year.
