Tetons – super awe inspiring

20140731-083120-30680430.jpg
A thunderstorm was coming and so we stayed just outside of the south entrance of Yellowstone – just north of the Tetons at Flagg Ranch… A campground, lodge, RV village – but had some pretty cool little camper cabins

And surprisingly good food at the lodge… Carrot ginger soup, homemade cornbread, prime rib, grilled vegetables with super awesome reduced aged balsamic vinegar and homemade blueberry pie- wow!

After an awesome meal and good night’s rest we were ready for the Tetons- so so beautiful

We got off the bikes for a bit and rented a canoe in Jenny Lake!

We went for a cool swim

With enough daylight left, we headed on down to Jackson and then camped near Victor, Idaho at the Wyoming border…

Yellowstone- bison and geysers- yeah!!

Once we came off our beartooth pass high- I was feeling pretty excited about Yellowstone – and it was so much fun- lots to see everywhere you turn…

Bison!

20140728-131752-47872183.jpg
…In the road!

20140728-131848-47928809.jpg
Geysers!

20140728-132237-48157404.jpg

20140728-132354-48234080.jpg
Hot springs (like 200 degrees) and mudpots

20140728-132910-48550692.jpg
I was a little suspicious of these mudpots

20140728-132954-48594560.jpg
Old Faithful!

20140728-133317-48797509.jpg

20140728-133553-48953603.jpgWe were serendipitously at each of the geysers when they were going…some of the smaller springs only go off twice a day and Old Faithful, something like every 85 min…
We stopped by to check out the Old Faithful Inn- built in 1904- located right next to Old Faithful… Super cool lodge!

(Source:,http://www.usparklodging.com/m/yellowstone_old_faithful_inn.php – it was kinda hard to get a good shot because of light an it was packed with people- so I snagged this one above from the internets …)

Cool Old Yellow Buses- White Motor Company Model 706 that we’re used in Yellowstone and other parks starting in the 1930s

20140728-134652-49612974.jpg
I really loved Yellowstone- it made me feel like a kid- it was all so exciting – even despite all the millions of people!

Have to say, this is one of our favorite roads ever ridden
