Tip Toeing Through the Tetons
The grand Tetons beckoned but before leaving Yellowstone we set the sat nav to get us to see Old Faithful.
I felt immensely sorry for the lady who having waited for ages suddenly dashed for the bathroom & missed the rush of hot water as it soared into the air.
We were also lucky enough to get to meet a charming explorer & wild life photographer who signed a copy of his book for us.
Having assumed we could find a wild campsite we weren’t unduly worried but as dusk started to fall and no suitable spot availed itself we opted for a RV site. It was the last pitch & tight to reverse into but we survived & at least the showers were good. It proved to be the most expensive of all the sites we stayed at even with the discount so to be warned maybe plan ahead if travelling that way.
Visiting Jenny Lake I treated myself to a book of letters from the pioneer women who made the journey in very arduous conditions. Reading it surrounded by the mountains evoked a real sense of the courage & fortitude of those women. Probably goes a long way to explain the American love of the RV today as it does seem to hold a real connection to the country’s history.
Driving on to the next stop we travelled for many miles on long stretches of road to keep amused we started silo snapping until we had acquired a random selection of them. Next came logging trucks but more of that later.
Having briefly tiptoed in the Tetons we then set off for Twin Falls.
