Jun 24, 2015 - Grand Tetons

We made it to the Tetons. This is where I am typing at the laundry. This Park is extremely huge and busy. The road to the campsite always has a car or RV either coming or going. We arrived Sunday and were able to get a nice spot. Not quite enough light for Mike's solar charger so we are moving the charger around with the sun. The battery is getting low so we may have to change campsites. The Tetons are a little higher than Grandfather Mountain in NC. There is quite a bit of snow on them and Mike has taken some phenomenal pictures Once he...

May 16, 2015 - The Road to Jackson Hole WY.

Saturday the 16th of May. We woke up this morning to about 6 inches of snow and on top of that there is no longer any power to the Campground. I checked and found that the power was out throughout the whole Canyon. I know it went out about 2 AM and we have been running on Battery Power ever since. Not too much of an inconvenience since we can run the generator when we need to for cooking or charging the Battery’s. The problem is that the roads are in rough shape from the snow. So Jackson Hole maybe out of the question for today. We may have...

Oct 8, 2014 - Jackson wild life

What a crazy day in Jackson with the wildlife Returned to our condo after a night away in Cody, our pet squirrel was hanging off our back screen trying to get our attention, which of course led to some nuts being placed on the deck. No sooner had we taken care of Cyril the squirrel when we looked up to see a female moose run across our back garden, followed 20 seconds later by her running back. We just looked at each other in amusement and burst out laughing. Poor Cyril didn't know what to do and headed up our Cyprus tree. The people in the...

Oct 4, 2014 - USA Holiday

What a busy two weeks we have had. Left Telluride and did an overnight stop in Grand Junction. We decided to take the 155 mile spectacular Unaweep-Tabeguache Scenic and Historic Byway. The first section winds its way through the remote but breathtaking Unaweep Canyon, with its 1,200-ft granite walls rising from green fields. From Gateway it's red rock country with the road running alongside – and often high above – the Dolores River. This area is a great combination of Monument Valley and Moab and one of the best drives we have taken,...

Aug 31, 2014 - USA Holiday

We have now finished summer in the USA and tomorrow is the first day of fall. We spent our last day in Yellowstone driving the bottom loop, which takes you past Old Faithful and Yellowstone Lake. The whole area has changed so much since we were last here with a lot more new geyser activity and the roadway is quite damaged, the scientists say it's just the winter damage but other opinions are the whole area is becoming more active. We also saw a lot of bison in the Lamar valley area, there were herds with over 80 bison. Some were on the...

May 18, 2014 - Jackson Hole Wyoming

Last day in Tetons and like all Americans tourist do we went shopping to Jackson Hole Wyoming. Probably the most expensive small town, at least in my mind. There was a chili tasting event in the town square and we enjoyed having many small chili bowl for lunch. Jackson Hole, is a charming town with many art galleries, shops and restaurants almost all pricey but they all serving to the wealthy clientele. Median price of the sold house in 2013 was $1.3M and Sotheby and Christie real estate offices are in the town. We had a good time, spend...
