Jun 8, 2018 - A whole lotta awesome today!!
Rise and shine! No wait a minute . . . Not so much shine, there is fog down to the ground this morning! But it looks like it will clear before we are ready to go! Might as well have breakfast at the Sula Cafe while we wait! And it was delicious! And they packed us a sandwich for lunch! As you may or may not have detected, i had a rather feisty day yesterday feeling unsettled and not ready to stop for the day for unidentified reasons. Perhaps getting stopped early by rain showers or was it just simply disappointement that we didn't get to...Jump to full entry
Sep 20, 2009 - Yeah - I finally have internet access!
Aaaggghhhhh! It is so frustrating to be "sporadically connected" to the internet, never knowing when it will cooperate and when it does, it takes FOREVER to get anything done! That has been the case for the last couple of weeks and therefore, our journal is way behind in being updated. Now that we have access (at least for tonight), I am going to begin updating entries. I am starting with today and then will work my way backwards as time permits. We have been in the Gros Verdante (pronounced Grow Vont) National Park, 5 miles North of...Jump to full entry
Sep 18, 2009 - Llamas, llamas, llamas
This journal post is dedicated to my younger sister Tracy, one of the official Llama Mamas in our family (The other is my sister Deborah who also owns llamas). A couple of years ago, Tracy worked for 6 or so months on the Highline Llama Ranch in Pinedale, Wyoming, about 90 miles South of Jackson Hole. Since her descriptions of the area as well as the pictures she sent to us were so beautiful, I wanted to see the place as well as meet the owners and the friends she made while working there. It was perfect weather, so we rode the Harley and...Jump to full entry
Sep 18, 2009 - Grand Teton Pictures
There is not really any description for the magnificance of the Teton Mountains. Just about everywhere we went in any direction, the mountains peeked through the landscape. It was amazing to feel the air temperature in the mid 70's and yet look up and see snow and ice glaciers in the tops of the Tetons. Since the beauty can not adequately be described, I will let the pictures speak for themselves.Jump to full entry
Sep 17, 2009 - Riding ATV's in the Mountains
Today the weather was perfect - 70's, low humidity and sunshine. We decided to rent a couple of two seater TV's and ride the trails in one of the mountain ranges not too far from our campground. Our friends, Bette and Roy, rode on one of the ATV's and Art and I rode the other. I should know by now to ride on one by myself as that gives me some element of control over my destiny, but decided to ride double with Art this time. Of course anyone who knows Art, knows that 1) he never goes slow on any type of vehicle and 2) he loves challenges....Jump to full entry
Sep 17, 2009 - Moose in the campground!
WOW!!! Our friend Roy, woke up early this morning and decided to see if he could find any wildlife roaming around. Sure enough, in the back of the campground, he found several moose among the RV's, just grazing in the grass. He knocked on our door to let us know so we could see for ourselves. Sure enough .. there they were, big as life, just hanging out among the RV's, eating their breakfast. Too cool for words!Jump to full entry
Sep 17, 2009 - Watch Out - Buffalos in the Road
First let me say that I think buffalos are #1 in my book as far as animals go. They look so powerful and so "prehistoric". Whenever I look at them, I feel like I am navigating back in time hundreds of years ago and viewing them through the eyes of the early explorers of this country. Maybe prehistoric is not exactly the right word, but you get the gist of the feeling. How surreal it is to travel down the road to your campground and find it blocked by buffalo who have decided they need to move .... NOW. They do not care about people, cars,...Jump to full entry
