Tetons, Wind River and Big Horn


SHERIDAN, WY — Well, things certainly got wild last night in Jackson. I went to a few bars and talked with quite a few people. The night ended with me getting lost in downtown Jackson. I couldn’t find my hotel and my phone died, but I found it after 45 minutes of running around.

Friday marked the last day of my driving adventure. I traveled through Grand Tetons National Park, the Wind River Canyon and Big Horn National Forest.

It was another amazing drive through winding roads along the Wind River and high-mountain driving in the Big Horn forest. It was a glorious day for weather, too. It reached 85 degrees where I was traveling, but that temperature quickly dipped when I headed into the Big Horn Mountains. At the top of the pass, it was a crisp 55 degrees, but still very enjoyable.

Haven’t seen much wildlife on this trip. I saw a few deer and buffalo, but that was about it for animals. When I got out to take pictures of the Wind River, I swear I heard the rattles of a rattlesnake, but I couldn’t find him.

My plan for tonight is simple — don’t get lost and have some fun. My sunburn has reached its peak and I think it will start to mellow out in the next day or two.

I was telling some folks last night that I’m not sure I could ever top this trip. I’ll have to think of something for next year, though.

That’s all for now!
