August 12 – Bear Gulch Hike
Its named Bear Gulch for a reason. Thankfully, we did not see the namesake on this rails to trail hike as we had beautiful views of the Warm River. Interesting note: We are walking along the Yellowstone Caldera zone- a.k.a- the blast zone.
August 10 – YELLOWSTONE
While Jeff and Mark ran errands and did some fly fishing, the girls went to Yellowstone. Thank you Lori for being an amazing guide.
August 9 – Adventures in Idaho
Enjoyed the Henry's Fork of the Snake River today.
Aug 8 – A Hike and some sightseeing
Today we had a rainy morning and a bit of down time. Then, the clouds parted and we headed to Harriman State Park for a hike and wildlife viewing.
Headed into Casper, WY and then to our hotel in Dubois, WY. We visited Jackson Hole, the Grand Tetons and checked out Mormon Row. We did not have the crisp clear skies due to fires in the area.
Aug 3- The Oregon Trail
Day two brought a change in our route as we decided to follow part of the Oregon Trail. As we headed across the country we headed to Guernsey, WY to see the best set of preserved wagon ruts (according to the Smithsonian). We also visited Inscription Rock.
Aug 2 – THE DAY TO HEAD WEST HAS ARRIVED!
At 9:00 a.m. we hit the road and headed west. We will be spending a couple days in Jackson Hole and then to Mark and Lori's house in Idaho. We will spend a week at their lovely home while Mark and Jeff hike and Lori and I explore Yellowstone.
As you can see, the car is ready to go (and so are we).
So many places to see as we head to Yosemite. Our first stop will be Jackson Hole for a couple days to check out the Tetons and then onto Idaho.
