Highlights of the trip;
1. Doing Cinnamon Pass;
2. Staying at 3 Step Hideaway http://www.3stephideaway.com and meeting Scott and Julie ; and
3. Seeing my wife do technical off road with me.

The road to Georgetown Lake (Hwy #1) is amazing check the following photos







Our campsite in Bannack, during our stay we met a retired couple that were traveling in a 3/4 ton Dodge with a toy hauler, at first I said to Josee that they must have a golf cart inside, boy was I wrong, not only was he a biker, but had a BMW R1200GS in the back, cool old "retired" guy.






Mrs Selfie (lots more to come)

Our first dirt road Bannack to Hwy 324 (20Kms of dirt)

Lima(ish) MT to Hwy 20 (Idaho) 90 kms and an other CD pass




Me adjusting the tire pressures


Again the selfies

The trail to Grand Teton park

We continue on the CDT towards Grand Teton on road # 261, for a while to road is ease, we meet a couple and they tell us it will be a little harder but no issues. For me they were right but for Josée she did put her off-road skills to the test, passed with flying colours. Here are a few photos and a video.

Wyoming and more

After a good night in Grand Teton (steak supper) we continue our trip, on a side note I forgot to remove the lens cover on my video camera in Jackson Hole, oh well good thing we are coming back.

We stayed in Colter Bay Village (tent village) not recommended by us. The walled tents are not worth the extra cost, $63 USD.

Relaxing in our "Motel 6" room, why a hotel room, well for a few extra $$ we get our own shower!

Parked for the night, supper at Appleby was good.

In Colorado

The next photos are of Three Forks Ranch, hard to believe someone would pay that kind of money for a night, there web site states between $695 to $5995. Its on the COBDR at the Northern part. Here is a link to the Ranch
http://www.threeforksranch.com
It is truly beautiful to look at.

Josée had a little scare, she drove thru some sand and lost control of her bike for a second by like a pro took control back of her bike.

Our camp site at Chapman Reservoir

The ride from the start of the COBDR to here was very cool, Steamboat Lake is very nice, the road provides lots of fun. Like any other town Steamboat Springs is too busy (4th of July), all the campgrounds are full.

The ride to the Chapman Reservoir is different, something is off, we can't figure it out (we will). We set up camp ($10) have supper, neither of us is hungry, but we eat some, we walk the campground to see who else is there, not many. We go to bed early.

The next morning I wake up with a headache and Josée does also plus she is sick, remember I told you we would figure it out, well we are both not used to high altitudes (9500 feet plus) and it's affecting us.
