Where I stayed
Snake River KOA
Left Yellowstone after a cool night and drove west out of the campground. We passed many groups of buffalo's and a couple moose and an eagle. Unfortunately we really wanted to to south towards Grand Tetons, so after leaving the park we entered again and passed the same Buffalo's, mouses and eagle. We headed south though the Yellowstone bubbling waters on the side, steaming areas on the other side. We stopped at painted pots made by boiling mud bubbling up. Another storm was blowing in with wind and hail. A few mile later we arrived at the Old Faithfully Geyser and made hot chocolate in the moterhome waiting out of the cold until the next show. We waited in a light snow and wind for Old Faithfully to blow off, it was worth the wait. Driving south along the Yellowstone river and a few partially frozen lakes through some of the most beautiful country of our trip. It was lightly snowing most of the day as we drove to Grand Tetons National Park. We visited the visitor center and took pictures by the incredibly beautiful lake with th e snow capped Tetons in the background. Again we drove south though the Tetons area towards Jackson Hole. Dinner in Jackson Hole and a quick look around another great little city. We signed up for rafting on the Snake River for the next day, but backed out when realizing the high was going to be 38 and lightly raining and water very, very cold. We camped along the Snake River south of Jackson Hole at a nice KOA. Spent the night cleaning cloths, showering etc.
