Apr 22, 2019 - Grand Tetons National Park in Moose Wyoming 2018

Being early May, the temperatures averages from 30-60degrees depending on the elevation. When we left Utah, the temperature was near 65, when we drove over the Teton Pass (8,432ft elevation), it was snowing, sleeting, and in the 30s. Once we were over it and into Jackson, the temperature went back into the 50s. Driving through Jackson/Hole, Wyoming, we got a feeling of déjà vu. I guess it was because we really have been here before, back in 2012 (journal entry #85 Sept 28, 2012 to be exact). We saw some familiar places like the Antler Arch...

Sep 10, 2018 - Still alive and kicking

Dave here. We're still doing our thing, and all is well. Currently working for a season at the Grand Tetons, and it's been great. Sorry we haven't posted anything for a while, but the time and effort that goes into a blog update was taking time from other things I wanted to do. Cindy planned to take over, but has found herself a little overwhelmed by the process as well, lol. (She has over a year's worth of photos just sitting in folders on the computer, lol) I warned her, lol! We've been concentrating on building up our bank account, and...

Sep 5, 2018 - Grand Teton National Park

We spent 3 days at the wonderful Grand Teton National Park. We spent one night at the Headwaters Rv Park and two nights at the Colter Bay Village campground which was much more convenient. We kayaked at Jackson Lake. We had fantastic dinners at the Ranch House restaurant. It was the best National Park restaurant that we experienced. We saw a female moose gorging herself on pond grass. We had a fabulous last National Park day starting with a beautiful kayaking excursion on the gorgeous Jenny Lake. Then we hiked on the Lake Jenny trail along...

Aug 3, 2013 - Wallander, the Oregon Trail and Bald Eagles

For the loooong drive today I wallowed in a Wallander (Val-AND-der) audio book, prequel to the PBS mystery series. The morose Swedish detective, with a wardrobe of sweaters to suit each notch on the Celsius thermometer, was a great diversion on the way from Boise to Idaho Falls. The Snake River serpentined back and forth under the straight-as-an-arrow highway as I despaired for the travelers of the Oregon Trail who walked or rode in wagons and on horseback for weeks on end through this desolate sagebrush country. It’s a good thing I had a...

Jun 27, 2013 - Grand Teton National Park

We left Victor, ID and crossed over the "Teton Pass" into Jackson Hole, WY. I do NOT recommend this route (Wyoming 22 and Idaho 33) while towing going either way. It is about 10 Miles of 10% grade. 5 up and 5 down. We entered the park through the Granite Canyon entrance. Upon leaving the park you are immediately in the John D. Rockefeller Memorial Parkway which connects Grand Teton NP with Yellowstone NP. On our way back we went around the Teton NP through Jackson, WY.

Aug 20, 2010 - Craig Thomas Visitor Center Grand Teton

There is so much to see and we just touch the surface driving through. The park ranger gave us a guide to which lists some of the most important areas to view. The ranger said that there was a 4 inch snowfall on the mountains a couple of days ago. You can still see the now in the highest peaks when you look up. On our drive, we did see a young male deer with antlers eating calmly despite all the cars driving past him. When we get to Yellowstone, we still see some smoke in the distance. There are signs on the roadway though that say not to...

Jun 1, 2010 - Grand Tetons, WY

May 31 & June 1 Grand Teton National Park Colter Bay Campground Well the blue sky and puffy clouds had to come to an end sometime. We arrived at the Grand Tetons with clouds coming in and rain showers. Unfortunately it’s supposed to be cloudy and rainy for about a week. The good news was that we were still able to get out and see some views even if the Tetons were covered in clouds. Hiking and looking not only at the views but for wildlife at the same time has been lots of fun. We have seen elk, deer, moose (sorry Sharon), red tailed hawk,...

Sep 28, 2008 - A ride to the Tetons

We left around 9:00 for a drive down to the Tetons. We drove down to Moose on US89, took a drive down Antelope Flat and Mormon row to see some barns, then took Teton Park Rd back up along the Snake River. As with Yellowstone, many of the stores, restaurants, gift shops are closing for the season. We did manage to find a lodge that is open year-round at Signal Mountain Lodge near Colter Bay Marina, had a bite to eat there, and chatted with some people that live outside of San Francisco. It was another gorgeous day except it was a little hazy...

Sep 4, 2008 - Yellowstone & Tetons

August 29th We drove through Southern Montana and entered Yellowstone National Park at the North entrance. The first few miles were pretty desolate. It is very dry here and the temperature is above normal. Mostly yellow grass and sagebrush. As we went farther into the park, the scenery improved. We came into pine forest and then starting seeing thermal features with steam coming up out of the ground. The earth around these areas is barren and mostly white and pink. The hot mineral water bubbles up out of the ground. We stopped and looked at...

Jun 21, 2008 - Hiking and Rafting

We're movin' on to Yellowstone today. We had a great hike to the canyon between those magnificent Grand Tetons. We saw moose and marmots. It is one of the most popular hikes in the park, so we arrived early and as we were leaving after our hike, the crowds were showing up. Our raft trip was great - the water was moving so rapidly, it didn't last as long as we would have liked but we saw lots of wildlife including eagles, beavers, elk and lots of ducks. I'll try to post photos later today if we have cell service - if not, stay tuned. We'll...

Jun 17, 2008 - Grand Teton National Park

Exiting Yellowstone National Park through the South entrance, we headed toward it's sister park - Grand Teton. The Teton Range was named by a french trapper who saw the three most prominent peaks and called them "Les trois tetons" (the three breasts). All boob men, those wacky frenchies. The absaroka range is stunning, the smokies are green and beautiful, the bighorns, the gallatin range - all are captivating and grand in their own special ways, but none of these have the immediate and unmistakable impact of the Tetons. Without foothills,...

Dec 16, 2007 - Big Game Payoff

We woke up to a beautiful, crisp Wyoming morning and decided to head into Teton National Park to "Moose". It was an amazing drive, and we felt like we were driving on the top of the world. On the way we saw hundreds of Elk at the National Elk Reserve (we took pictures), so we were pretty excited about the "big game payoff". What can we say? Just when you think you've seen the most beautiful place you've ever seen, the road turns and your jaw drops as you lean to see out the window. Wyoming is GORGEOUS. After we left Moose we went over Teton...
