Jul 14, 2019 - Back To Just the 2 Of Us!

So we wrapped up our time with Taylor on July 12th, when Anita put her on the plane in Salt Lake City bound for Orlando. She made it home fine, and now is an expert at flying. Anita and I left Echo Island RV in Coalville, UT, and headed for our first stop in a National Forest Dispersed Campground. We had about 280 miles to drive and got into Jackson Hole, WY about 2 PM. There we stopped and dropped the truck, and headed another 30 miles or so to the campground. We planned to go to Upper Teton View Campground which was a couple miles off US...

Jun 30, 2018 - Two days in the Tetons

We spent the next two days in he Tetons. The scenery is just fantastic and there is a lot for the boys to do. We took a hike at Jenny Lake. Pete and Elisabeth went for a bike ride at the campground one night and came back to report that they had seen a mama bear and her cub not a mile from the campground. They were pretty excited. Peter went down to the Snake River fishing, but did not have any luck. One day the boys and Pete and Elisabeth went for a horseback trail ride. They were luck that just the four of them were on the ride. I do not...

Jun 29, 2018 - Rafting on the Snake River

So we got up and headed to Jackson Hole for a day of sightseeing and a float trip down the Snake River. On the way we stopped at Dog Jax and boarded Harley and Ivy. They got to play and as a bonus for us, the got a bath! After dropping them off we headed into Jackson Hole. We had a float trip scheduled for 1 pm, but were told if we wanted to find a place to park the RVs we had better get there early. Well we lucked out and found two spots in the public lot right next to downtown and the rafting company! We used the extra time to explore...

Jun 28, 2018 - Peter joins the party

Today Peter flew in from Florida and joined us 11 days after leaving us in Louisiana. He was able to get a Taxi to the campground and we packed up headed north to Jackson Hole. The drive was really pretty. Wandered into Idaho and then into Wyoming. Had to battle the GPS and Google that wanted to send us though a housing development with narrow gravel roads instead of down a paved road with one turn. We have learned that neither Google nor our GPS is always better than a map! Tomorrow it is off to Jackson Hole and a raft trip down the Snake...

Aug 20, 2017 - Jackson Hole

SUNDAY, AUGUST 20 –MONDAY, AUGUST 21, 2017 We bid a fond farewell to Rocky Mountain NP and pointed our buggy toward the Tetons. As we headed north the landscape was mostly flat with a few rolling hills and the mountains in the distance. Hay was the only crops we saw. There were house-size stacks of baled hay. Many of the hay fields were being irrigated. The fire risk has been severe in this area. We saw 10-15 white tail deer running across the fields. They had easy pickings in the hay fields. Other than the hay fields the ground was covered...

Jun 20, 2017 - Grand Tetons

3 days to see the Grand Tetons without moving the RV. We are learning how to get-up and go pretty fast. Really enjoying the coach and it's ease of use and the comfort level is great. Days here are in the 80s and nights down to high40s. Had a true thunderstorm move into our area around 3:30 in afternoon. Rain, thunder and lightning only to clear up for evening walk. We are taking lots of pictures but downloading is a problem with spotty wifi. Wednesday, day 5 was a great trip all through the Tetons villages and scenic areas with Coop. We are...

Summer of 2017

Jun 12, 2017 - Grand Tetons Day Two

Mon., June 12th – After a nice breakfast at John Colter’s Ranch House near the Colter Bay Visitor Center, we took the entire loop around the Teton Park Road. The views of the Tetons looked different at every turn as the clouds rolled across the beautiful glacier mountain peaks. We were excited to have our first buffalo sighting…more of that to come in Yellowstone. Braving the cold drizzling rain, we walked the streets of Jackson and took our pictures under the antler arches…a must do for tourists. The evening was spent at the Bar J...

Sun., June 11th – Drove into the mountains via US 89 en route to Jackson Hole. The views around Bear Lake and the little town of Logan were amazingly scenic. We arrived at Gros Ventre Campground in the Teton Nat. Park in time for a ride up the road to Jackson Lake Lodge where we hiked up the hill for some great photos of the jagged, majestic Tetons.

Sep 15, 2016 - Steam and Wildlife

We left reasonably early and set off towards the north gate of Yellowstone Park (the oldest) Through farmed countryside - perhaps not as affluent as some we had passed through. Everything looks dry everywhere. Unfortunately the ignition switch connection parted and we had to pull off the road in a hamlet called 'Emigrant" - the name being a relic of prospectors. The locals were very helpful and, with a little telephone advice from Paul, Robin was able to carry out a repair. We just had two little hiccups later in the day. My first...

Sep 10, 2016 - Gardiner, MT to Alpine, WY

Well, our time at Yellowstone is over. Talk about a diverse park. I have never seen so many different types of landscape and types of nature in one area. I can understand why the explorers who found this area wanted to keep it for their generation and many to follow. Thanks to Teddy Roosevelt for creating our National Park systems. The Grand Teton National Park is much smaller than Yellowstone. There are 3 major mountain peaks plus Jackson Lake. It was an enjoyable ride from Yellowstone to Alpine which is south of Jackson Hole, WY. Jackson...

Rocky Mountains-2016

Aug 26, 2016 - Grand Tetons

The Tetons We took a couple of weekend trips into the Tetons. These photos are a combination of them. We went with a couple of co-workers on a raft trip down the Snake River near Jackson. The first part of the raft trip was a scenic float trip. It was a beautiful sunshine day. We passed the home of Tiger Woods and the huge ranch of Harrison Ford. One story we were told about him was that he rode a motorcycle to a local convenience store and went to pay for his purchase with his helmet still on. The guy at the register says “Who are you?...

Jun 19, 2016 - Jackson Hole, WY

Sunday, 6/19 on to Grand Tetons! We charged & filled up everything as we figured we will be 5 days without power and water, altho’ we can get water & dump when we change campgrounds. Had to get an early start as we couldn’t make reservations at Grand Teton National Park. We drove through 3 states today, awesome views, Utah, Idaho & finally Wyoming! Drove right into Gros Ventre campground & got a nice spot with no trouble. The campsite is near the river and all the cottonwood trees are blooming now – another spring! Anyway, the cottonwood...
