I forgot to mention a couple things in my last entry. 

Our camping neighbor, Jim is a retired engineer from Florida. He has been going up to Grand Teton National Park for 18 years and it's his favorite place on the planet. He thinks it's because of the lakes and fishing. He keeps his motorhome, bass boat and a jeep in storage in the Jackson area and flys up from Florida every year to spend a couple months. He will be leaving for the season on thursday but will return for the snowmobile season in Yellowstone. Must be nice! He said he'd love to move up there but all of his grandchildren live in Florida.

Jim and his white lab "Boomer" furnished the fish for dinner one night. Dave and I provided the wild rice and green salad to go with it. Great meal! We seemed to sit around the campfire talking to them most of the evening. Pretty interesting! 

Also, don't feel bad kids, the colors of the paint pots at Yellowstone were not anywhere near as colorful as they were the last time we were there. Apparently this situation is due to the lack of water. Everything is extremely dry.

Today we are driving west again. We're starting the trek over to the west coast to see the Redwoods! 

We saw the horses on our way out.

I am so glad Colter Bay CG worked out for you. We have not had good luck during peak season. Have had small, sites right on top of other campers. Please write down your campground site number for me! We dry camp most of the time, too.

Did you see the beehive erupt? It is supposed to be spectacular.

No, we saw the beehive last visit and it seemed larger than Old Faithful. at that time. This time we arrived just as Old Faithful was erupting and on our walk around the geysers, one of the others started to bubble and some guy that is studying the geysers said "Oh, you're just in time for a good show!" We stayed to watch and it was pretty big, Neat to see for sure.
