I was trying to add a picture of Bunny to the previous post but for some reason the picture disappeared! I walked across the street to the lodge where I had to perch on the stair landing and I guess cross my fingers and pat my head! The desk clerk finally went upstairs and turned the router off and on. Voila! Bunny’s picture reappeared! So here she is. She sent this photo as she was leaving to make a presentation to the elementary school.
We took Dan to Bozeman airport Sunday and headed east to Devils Tower. We had no wifi and no cell at Lytle Creek, our B & B just a couple of miles from the park. It was a beautiful place. I’m writing now from the cabin at Custer State Park still no wifi so photos will be limited.
We highly recommend it. Quiet, quaint and down a dirt road from Devils Tower. It’s a ten minute drive to Hulett, population of about 500! But the eating there was excellent and Lynn and I each had a stone therapy massage from Bunny Sings Wolf, a Lakota healing woman. That’s a whole other blog!
The ride to Bozeman was just as spectacular as every other place we have been. We stopped by the Gallatin River for Dan’s last picnic. He is coming back to Tennessee tomorrow. We stopped in Big Sky, MT and walked 2mile hike down to Ousel Falls. It was well worth the hike. I took my Canon camera so the photos you see today came from Lynn’s iPhone. She has become quite the photographer.
When we got to the falls two guys came up carrying their kayaks. We thought they were crazy, but, they put them in the water right under the falls. We got to see them go for a way. Can’t post the video, sorry. Now we are in Bozeman getting ready to watch the Preds kick butt.
We have to leave Birdsong Cottage today. Jennifer our hostess was fabulous. I highly recommend a stay there if you want peace and quiet near the Tetons.
Next check in will be Bozeman
Friday we drove back over Teton Pass to the park. There is still a bit of snow up there.
On the way back there was a traffic jam which usually means an animal sighting. This time it was down an embankment, a mom grizzly and two cubs! Lynn stopped the car and I jumped out to join the crowd. I caught a glimpse of them through the trees. If you look closely you can barely see the dark fur.
We left Gardiner and took a leisurely drive to Victor,ID. We have a great house there. Below is the view from our back yard. Those peaks in the distance are the Grand Tetons.
We took off to Jackson and Grand Teton Park where a floating raft ride was waiting. There was snow on the mountains and it was beautiful. Unfortunately photos I made were on the Canon so I can’t wifi upload, sorry. It was a cloudy day but still the mountains were breath taking.
experience. It was a first for me. Weather was a little chilly but we were prepared. We saw, elk, a moose, a bald eagle and various beavers. Lynn is becoming quite the videographer. You will see her work later.
