Weather was a cool 60+ degrees F this morning so we headed off to Teton Village to mountain bike down Jackson Hole Mountain. Luckily there were many trails to fit our abilities. Dean and Mary Ann took off together for about the first 6 runs. Mary Ann took a tumble on the 3rd run but continued on. Drew and Sean tackled the more difficult runs from the start and then when Mary Ann was done, Dean joined them for another 2 hours. Tired everyone out... and then the boys headed to the pool when we got back to our cabin. Dean and Mary Ann relaxed on the porch watching some kids fish in the creek and saw a muscrat swim by. Raining again but the boys have stuck it out at the pool.... read more

We set off today to ride the aerial tram at the ski area in Teton Village. When we got to the top the guys couldn't take their eyes off of the paragliders running off of the cliff 3000 feet above the valley. So.........Drew and Sean decided to try tandem paragliding and had a great time. Hard to beat but after leaving Teton Village we drove back into Jackson to do the alpine slide at Snow King. The slide was fun and we also did a round of mini golf (Sean won this time). After just a little rest we headed off to the Jackson Rodeo being held as part of the Teton County Fair. Lots of fun as always - Drew got to wear his new hat along with the boots he brought from home.... read more

It’s amazing how much sleep you need when on the go all day. By 8:30 at night I’m tired and by 9 it’s bed time. You’d think one would wake up at 5 am, not to be. We usually rolled out of the sack about 7 and by that time the sun was just starting to dance on the tips of the Tetons. It is dark in the woods where Pennelope is and of course quiet, because it’s still quiet hours, so there’s no choice but to sleep in. Besides, we’re on vacation! All this is leading up to say that we slept in this morning. After our wonderful coffee we had oatmeal walnut pancakes and were off to Oxbow Bend. I must digress a moment. Denise has taken on some chores that have made her ... read more

It is up early today and on the road to get to the airport to pick up my sister Dedie. She is flying into Jackson which is supposed to be 2 hours away. I rearranged the bed so we could sleep a different way and made room in the cabinet for her clothes. When I get home I am getting rid of half the things I have in the camper, entirely too much stuff. I was on the road by 8:45 and the weather had improved tremendously from yesterday. The sun was coming up and the trees sparkled with the remnants of last nights downpours. Picture The road went for miles with just small trees, all new growth from the 88 fire. The new trees are now 15 to 20 ft tall and very thick and ... read more
