Left Idaho Falls Friday am and headed to Jackson,Wyoming. Drove thru some beautiful country, seems like I keep saying that, but it all IS so beautiful and different. Jackson & Jackson Hole, Wyoming area have city parks with "Antler" entrances- arbors made from deer and elk antlers. We stayed at Colter Bay Nat. campground and had no problem with room enough for our Teton, the national park campground has no hookups, but they have a seperate rv park with hook ups for those who need or want them. We were lucky and got a neighbor who also has solar so "no generator noise" he said. Our park was only $6. a night with Dave's golden age pass(sometimes it's nice to be old..) We had a great 3 days in the Grand Tetons and driving up to Yellowstone for a day, sure wish we could have stayed longer but we will be back. Saw lots of great scenery and lots and lots of animals including herds of Bison with babies, herds of Elk, deer, Moose mom's and babies, and Dave even got a chance to see a Grizzly bear with 3 cubs, not very close tho so pictures aren't as good as he saw. The park volunteers were great and had lots of info about the area-he told us about the grizzly and also about the moose with twins who wanders thru our park. We saw lots of great views of the Tetons and waterfalls and the yellowstone River. Waited to watch "Old Faithful" blow again and took pictures with my phone to send to my Mom. I could write on and on but the pictures will tell you much more so will end here and share lots of pictures .
