Wyoming and the Beartooth....WOW

Jackson WY is a quaint touristy town at the gate to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone.

We had a great camp spot near the river at Gros Ventre.

The smoke from Idaho fires was still there a bit, but we were lucky to get great views of the Tetons at sunset and the next day.

The visitor center here is incredible. There are very picturesque views along the Jenny Lake scenic drive.

Then it was on to the famous Yellowstone Park to see the geysers, boiling pools, and mud pots. The upper falls were very impressive. We had several “wildlife jams” from wondering bison, but the best was the Bison pace car that luckily for us was in the oncoming lane as there were at least 50 cars and motor homes behind him.

This led us up thru the north east part of the park to Cooke City, MT and the AWSOME Beartooth Scenic Byway. We met Robert “the Scot” at the summit.

The route ended at Cody with a stay in a Teepee and an oil change in the Walmart parking lot. The Buffalo Bill Center is well worth the admission and plan to spend half a day here.

Next for a close encounter with the Devil’s Tower. We played the music and brought mashed potatoes, but still no aliens.

We came upon a huge mine with shovels so big you can drive onto them and the biggest dump trucks in the world.
