We are still doing a lot of canning here at the homestead.
Pickles and beans are done.
Working on tomatoes, peppers and peaches.
And there's a lot more to do.

But anyway back to our trip home.

After we stayed in Montpelier, ID at the KOA, on the TV in the cabin we watched the radar and saw that it not raining about 50 north of us.

So, we packed out bikes in the rain and took off towards Jackson Hole WY.
Within an hour we were out of the rain, but there was no sunshine to greet us, not until we got north of Jackson.

We agreed to go on, while stopped at a traffic light in Jackson. We needed to find a camp site and found one along the Gros Ventre River just south of the Tetons.

We made camp and did our best to dry out and warm up.

The next morning the sun was out and we went to the Tetons and spent the whole day riding the back roads and seeing the sights.

If you enlarge the first picture you can see a raft floating down the Snake River.

The next day we broke camp to head north into Yellowstone. Made our camp at Lewis Lake. You could spend 3 months in Yellowstone on horse back and not see it all. It was a nice day with the sun shining, but there was also a slight chill in the air.

Although I did take a lot of pictures, I will spare you from having to view to many of them. Yes we went to Old Faithful but for some reason I never got a still picture of, only videos.

Another place to stop and see is the famed Fishing Bridge.

Although you can no longer fish from the bridge it gives you the old Disney feeling of the old Sunday night show I saw on TV when I was a kid, but the bridge is old and from what I saw it will need to be replaced some time soon.
I hope it is not with a steel bridge.

As we were cruising around the park we saw some buffalo coming out of the hills as if something was chasing them. They ran up to the river and went in without even slowing down. They swam across the river and in front of us without so much as a look, but I'm sure they were aware of out presents, across the road up and over the next hill and were gone.

The last picture I took because I would like to do some horse back riding in Yellowstone some day, before I get too old to do so.
