Sep 7, 2018 - The Long and Lonely roads

The map will show a straight line from Ogden to Dubois, but I actually had to go East, then North, then West again to get there. Most of the ride was level, just at a high altitude. the landscape was brown and I decided I am tired of seeing brownness and sage and barren-ness. The last 20 miles or so became much more interesting. I feel I saw a little of Sedona, Arizona with its red rocks, Brice with hoodoos, and the Badlands with the layered hills of different colors. I didn't take many pictures because the roads were two-lane highways with...

Jun 18, 2018 - A day full of everything!

Ok . . .well as you all know this isn't just a bicycle journey across America, it is much more! For me it is such an opportunity to think and learn and maybe be a better person at the end of it! Let me start at the beginning of the day again, it makes it so much easier to follow! It poured . . .all . . Night . . . Long!! So we didn't rush getting up, thinking we would wait it out again! We did check the radar and could see once the huge mass of rain passed, there was nothing else serious in range. So we made our own breakfast in the cabin...

Sep 1, 2017 - Brooks Lake

Since we had a few extra days at our Moran campsite, we drove the scenic route to Brooks Lake. We had lots of laughs because the route in to the lake was really a trail. We actually met two bikers and one jeep. It is quite hard to get away from all people. Brooks Lake did not disappoint me. I was there 51 years ago. It is just as beautiful as I remembered but the wildlife isn't as prolific. There is still a dude ranch in the valley. As we travel it is more obvious that the pine bore is totally out of control in our country. Will the trees...

Jun 20, 2017 - Dubois, Wy June 16th

Part Deux June 16th: After leaving Yellowstone by the South Gate we proceeded to Dubois, Wy. This drive took us through the Grand Tetons National Park, established Feb. 26, 1929 (note this is not like being assigned to write a paragraph with 100 woods and 120 for extra credit. I’m going to start adding more social studies types of details as I write so I’ll have a record when I come back to review this amazing trip). The Tetons were outstandingly beautiful. I admit if you’d shown me a picture of them a month ago I probably could not have...

Road Trip 2017

May 29, 2017 - Day 30 - Colter Bay Village to Dubois, WY

Today’s ride to Dubois, WY was a mountainous 66-mile ride with 3,829’ of ascent. I crossed the Continental Divide at 9,584’, and summited Togwotee Pass, elevation 9,658’. Today was my third climb over the Continental Divide in 2 days. Togwotee Pass was by far the highest elevation reached so far. At 9,658’ I definitely noticed it was a little harder to keep the bike going. I did get a mild headache, but I don’t know if it was from altitude, not drinking enough water, exertion, or all three. Dubois , population 998 and elevation 6,946’,...

Oct 6, 2016 - Trying to get to Yellowstone - Pt 1

We found out that the Eastern entrance to Yellowstone was closed to normal traffic. The girl at the Visitors Centre showed us a picture of how snowed up Yellowstone was and suggested we drive to the southern entrance as that should be ok the next day. The weather was expected to get better. That meant a long driving day to a town called Dubois. Not pronounced the French way of “Du-bwa”, but the bogan way of “Du-boyz”. Along the drive, Tamara mentioned how nice it would be to experience the soft flurry of snow. So, ask and you shall...

In the USA 2016

Sep 1, 2016 - Why Not Wyoming?

Dubois, WY September 1, 2016 Yesterday after writing my blog entry I headed east out of Arco, then turned north towards Spencer. What’s in Spencer, ID you might ask? Nothing much except opals, but since that is my birthstone I was pretty excited! For $15 you get to dig through their big pile of rubble and try to find rocks that have opal in them. You can keep up to 1lb., but anything over that you have to pay an additional $10 a lb. Grabbing my hammer, spray bottle of water, bucket and sunscreen, off I went! I asked another digger what I...

Born to Wanda

Jul 24, 2016 - Longhorn Ranch RV Resort

We were on the road just before 8 this morning. Fuelled up in Swan Valley, south to Alpine, Wyoming then north east to Moran Junction and finally south east to Dubois. The drive was very picturesque and easy. The last 25 miles of the drive turned kind of interesting. A great big lit up mobile traffic sign on the shoulder of the highway "Forest Fire in area. DO NOT STOP". The pictures tell a better tale. We pulled into Dubois to lightly hazy sky's off in the distance.

Jul 20, 2015 - Togwotee Pass

Today, we drove up to Togwotee Pass. This route through the Wind River Indian Reservation through the town of Dubois (pronounced Doo-Boys). If we continued on down the pass, it would have taken us to the north entrance of the Grand Teton National Park. Since we had been there before, we decided to turn around at the pass and go back to the RV which was parked in Lander, WY.

Where RV Now?

Jun 15, 2015 - On to Wyoming

We chose a different route coming out of Loveland. Instead of getting back on the Interstate to Cheyenne, we headed up to Fort Collins on 287. Little did we know, that takes us thru downtown and had a lot of construction that slowed us considerably. It was worth it in the end because the drive after Fort Collins was beautiful. We decided to stop in Dubois (dew boyz), Wyoming at the Longhorn RV park for the night. Surprisingly we went from living like sardines in Loveland to a beautiful, spacious park that was very relaxing. It came complete...

Oct 4, 2014 - Dubois, WY

After a great family visit, we headed out on US 26 to Dubois, WY. We stayed at The Longhorn Ranch RV Resort and Lodge. This park sits right on the Wind River and our site was right on the river. Absolutely beautiful park and for the most part, we had it to ourselves. Most of the parks in this area are closed or getting ready to close for the season although the weather has been sunny and warm. This city has the Interpretive Center for the Big Horn Sheep of the Rocky Mountains. We had briefly visited this area ten years ago and said we would...

Jul 27, 2013 - Trip to Dubois, WY

Today we left early and drove to Dubois, Wyoming which is the home of the National Big Horn Sheep Interpretative Center. The day was a bit cloudy but we decided to go anyway. I wish we would have waited for a brighter day. The pictures would have been a lot better. We thought we would just run over and see the Interpretative Center and come home because one of our workamping buddies said there really wasn't much to see in Dubois. I guess we look for different things. The scenery along the way and around Dubois is just gorgeous. The town is...
