I kept a journal to record every special moment of our vacation.
We hiked, we kayaked, we camped.
We were in a bison traffic jam.
The main purpose of our trip was to fulfill my desire to see wolves in the wild — and we were so lucky to view at least eight of the famous Lamar Valley wolf pack in Yellowstone, including the magnificent 755.
I’m even more passionate about stopping the ridiculous murder of wolves.
We met dedicated park rangers everywhere we went.
The Grand Tetons are AMAZING–we camped, hiked, and kayaked at Jenny Lake.
Our last day at the Great Basin National Park was breathtaking and exciting and scary — thunder, lightening, rain, hail, sleet, and snow; hiking at 10,000 feet. The temp went from the mid-eighties to low thirties in about an hour. AMAZING.
I’ll be downloading pics and writing about it all —
(We had tentative plans to meet up with another blogger in Idaho as we drove through, but we had stayed an extra day in the Tetons ‘cos it was so amazing and I was feeling kinda bad from the heat, so we couldn’t make it happen. Sorry, it would have been fun)
