The day started off dark and stormy, and stayed that way til after lunch. The snow began about 7 am and stayed with us til early afternoon. After dropping Luke off at the airport, we headed North toward Yellowstone. As we drove up along the Lewis River it started to snow quite hard. At the West Thumb park of Yellowstone Lake, the steam from the hot pools mixed nicely with the falling snow. Nothing had any boundaries. We wandered almost alone in a white, quiet bubbling world. The Canyon of the Yellowstone river disappeared into the fog as we sat listening to the roar of the waterfall. As we drove North we stumbled across odd wildlife -- a scared elk, wet bison, mule deer impervious to the presence of humans and a group of mountain goats. ... read more

Så skulle vi videre fra Yellowstone, turen gik videre til Jackson Hole i Wyoming. Vi havde besluttet at køre inde i Yellowstone, selv om den var lidt længere. Det viste sig at være en god beslutning, ja det vidste vi jo egentligt godt, da vi havde taget den rute den modsatte vej i 2010. Man kan se at terrænet ændrer sig på vejen derned. I det nordlige Yellowstone er der meget høje og forrevne bjerge, hvor det ændrer sig undervejs til at blive lidt mere afrundet terræn, lige til man forlader Yellowstone og kører ind i Tetons Nationalpark, man kører faktisk direkte fra den ene nationalpark til den næste, hvor man til sidst befinder sig i en dal på det sidste stykke ind til Jackson. At Jackson er fashionabel opdager man først når man checker ind ... read more

We've enjoyed many an American National Park/monument in previous trips (the most we saw I n one stretch was an impressive 17 when we did our American Southwest road trip awhile back (Zion was my favourite) and this time we're hoping to tackle 8, starting with Dinosaur National Monument in Jensen, Utah. From Colorado Springs we had a gorgeous drive along the I-70W. Most of this leg was through Colorado and let me say this to you, CO - you are a shockingly gorgeous state. Pictures don't do it justice but it's going on my fav drives playlist. We arrived at DNM late in the afternoon and the fossil site isn't open late (only until 5pm) so we hurried on over. The area is known for having an enormous amount of dinosaur fossils, and a number ... read more

Yesterday I cycled my way up the Teton Pass and then down to Jackson Hole, a lovely westernish touristic town. I was oh so tired and, as usual, unprepared, last minute and badly timed with the touristic season. Now the first logical thing to do would have been to find a place to sleep that night and then enjoy town. I even met a fellow touring group who told me they had a wonderful Warmshower host, and that maybe he could accommodate me too. But you see, I was thirsty. And one thing they do brag about in this town is their wiskey. .. So I found a bar, got lost in the I-have-wi-fi zone and failed to find the said host, tried some last minute Couchsurfing with no answer, then proceeded around 10pm to ask ... read more

We arrived yesterday in Jackson Hole, WY and it is such a beautiful place. Our lodging is a quaint log cabin at the Rustic Inn with all the amenities you could ask for in a hotel. Our first night we grabbed dinner at the Silver Dollar a local bar/restaurant at the Wart Hotel. Today we went exploring in and around Jackson. We went to the Grand Teton Village at Jackson Hole Resort and shopping in town. The town is full of adorable local shops selling jewelry, winter gear and speciality items. The town of Jackson is quaint and moves at a totally different pace than home. Everyone we have met here have been very welcoming and friendly. After a day in town, we went on a beautiful sunset sleigh ride through the Spring Creek Ranch and ... read more

Yell Day 19 Signal Mountain to Jackson. Whow! What a way to finish this trip. Sunny and warm with a steady downhill run to Jackson with the majestic Teton Mountain Range on our right, changing their hue with every hour as the sun climbs in the sky. What a difference 16 days make to the aspen trees, which were green when we traversed this route last and now a rich yellow. It was so peaceful on the cycle track, which stretches from the top of Jenny Lake right into Jackson, a total distance of about 24 miles of smooth Tarmac. The only downside today was that about 6 miles of it was out of use due to work on lime painting and new kerbing. I defied the signs and carried on going along one stretch until ... read more

Yellowstone Day1 and 2 Up at 4am today for a taxi for myself and Bill to Manchester Airport for our flight to New York. All ten of our British group went through check on with little trouble, except those with two check in bags who were made to past $100 extra. Luckily my pannier was small enough to go in the cabin along withy ruck sac full of paperwork, camera, chargers and computer etc. At Newark Airport we had to retrieve our clumsy bike bags and shunt them around the airport to the transfer desk - why couldn't they have gone straight through? Just to extract another $6 from us for the trolley? Once on the aircraft for Chicago we had a long wait. Firstly the engines would not start and we were told we would ... read more
