Mountain man Colter believed Cody County had the stirrings of hell with the hot steam rising from deep within the earth. But some think that this area on the eastern side of Yellowstone National Park, America’s first, is one of the most beautiful places in the country. For the FBF conference, held September 18-19 in this secluded area of the Intermountain West, John Vaughn showed up in boots, shiny buckle, and cowboy hat. Rick Cross appeared somewhat casual (meaning no tie) in the entrance of Wapiti Valley Church; but he still wondered where there would be Internet access, understanding that in the eight-hour drive from Longmont, Colorado, he was in a different world. And Ed Nelson, stooped over at 83 years of age but with a big smile and twinkle in his eye, remarked, “This is almost as good as Colorado.” Seeing these guys, I just knew that the two days were going to be fun. Forget the political hobnobbing of an old FBF echelon of long ago. I looked forward to the real fellowship in Colter’s Hell along the Shoshone River.
