We started the second half of our vacation with a beautiful drive though Yellowstone to Colter Bay in Grand Teton National Park. These photos illustrate an amazing thing about traveling by RV. The first photo was taken at the iconic Mural Room at Jackson Lodge where we had lunch. The Next photo is from our RV when we simply decided to stop for a snack…note the similarities of the fantastic view! 🙂 Our motorhome has a million “million dollar views” just waiting for us.
Colter Bay was a good base camp for the area and very dog friendly. My only complaint was the mosquitos. Apparently he mountain air makes them very hearty and they simply laughed at Off Deep Woods repellent…
In the morning we had a real treat. We were up early and on a boat headed to Elk Island for a breakfast at the foot of the Teton Range. The cooks had everything prepared when we got there and both the breakfast and the view was exceptional! After breakfast we took a short hike to the top of the island and enjoyed the views some more.
We took a hike around half of Jenny Lake the next day, taking the water taxi back to the main visitor area.
We then headed off to Jackson Hole. We had three things on our list….the tram to the top of Rendezvous Mountain, the Bar J Chuck-wagon BBQ and Western Music, and strolling through the town for more shopping and eating. We enjoyed all three and really wish we had more time to visit the area, but too soon it was time to head home.
We left early in the morning and when we crossed the Snake River for the last time, it felt like our vacation was over…
We made it all the way to Winnemucca the first day, and drove into the Bay Area the next day.
What an awesome vacation!
Now, of course, we are looking forward to our next RV trip in the BWB in August to Yosemite!
