Burned trees, Yellowstone National Park

Jackson Lake

Old Faithful

Buffalo in Yellowstone NP

Yellowstone Canyon

From Green River we went on to Jackson Hole. Going through the town of Jackson was, um, interesting. It's just like you would think - trendy shops, real estate offices and many people. Reminded me a lot of Santa Fe. The sign signaling the turn north (where our campground was) was hidden by graffiti and stickers, so the navigator missed it and we ended up way out of town on a narrow gravel road which we were sure wasn't the right one but didn't know how we got there or how to get off it. When it threatened to turn to a dirt road, we were sure. So, we turned around. If you've ever tried to turn around a 36' Fifth Wheel (total length with truck: 54') on a road with ditches on each side, you know what we went through. If not, trust me, it was stressful. I (Margaret, if you haven't guessed - otherwise known as The Navigator) finally (after much swearing, sweating and stopping to let passing traffic go around) successfully guided us back toward town, found the missed turn and got us headed in the right direction.

We spent three wonderful days in the Jackson Hole-Grand Teton-Yellowstone area. One day we went into Jackson and discovered a place that sells buffalo and elk meat - stocked up and got their card for delivery when we get home for the winter. Also Ian bought a new belt, which was a major event. We spent two days exploring Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks and decided we need to come back another time for a longer stay. Yellowstone has just about everything - prairies, mountains, hot springs, geysers, trees - both alive and burned to death - animals and, oh yes, Cruise America rental RVs. We saw lots of all of them. Lots of people, but the park is large enough so that we mostly weren't bothered by them.
