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...

Jun 11, 2017 - Grand Tetons

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...

Sep 15, 2015 - National Museum of Wildlife Art

Our schedule for the day is to visit the National Museum of Wildlife Art as there was a prediction of rain, museum being the perfect spot in the rain. It had rained most of the night and off and on in the morning, so we decided to enjoy the rain (trying out how to get it to Southern California) and also do some laundry with a departure time of noonish for the museum. Laundry finished we headed out - we had heard that the museum's cafe was a good place to eat, so of course we had to try it - the Judis split a burratto and tomato sandwich...

Sep 14, 2015 - Looking for Bears

Another leisurely morning after our 14-hour trip to Yellowstone yesterday. We were going to take the aerial tram up to the top of the mountain but as it was cloudy and rain was forecast, we decided on Plan B. We decided to check and see if the Moose-Wilson Road into the park (which is close to where we are staying) was still closed due to bear activity (closed to protect the bears, not the tourists). Turns out the first 4 miles were open today and we could get to the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve. At least that is what we told the park...

Sep 12, 2015 - Lazy Day

After our busy day yesterday, we decided no alarms today. We spent a leisurely morning planning the next trip--Anita got an e-mail for a great deal from Frontier Airlines-- before watching the Women's Final of the US Open. Fortunately for us, there was a rain delay which pushed the match from Friday to today. Felt bad for Serena not making it to the finals, but we were happy for the two Italian friends who were the surprise finalists. We then headed out to Jackson to check out the downtown. We had to proceed carefully as Teton Village was...

Sep 11, 2015 - Wildlife Safari & Scenic Snake River Float

Having an early breakfast and dressed for cool morning and warm afternoon we were ready at 7:00am when Kyle, our Wildlife Safari guide, rang the doorbell. There were three others on our tour that were already on board. Our first sighting was a herd of Elk a short distance down the road. We then stopped at the condo complex where the other guests were staying as they had seen a mother moose and her calf in the neighborhood. We lucked out as they were still eating at the front door of one of the condos. Then we were off to find bears, bison,...
