After such an amazing time in the Tetons, we sadly parted with our friends and started to head south. This loop is winding down to the last few days before we will find ourselves back in southern California. Until then, we will try to make the best of the road between here and there.
We really felt like we rushed through Yellowstone as we headed south towards the Grand Tetons after just 2 nights and 3 days. But we really didn’t have much of a choice as we were lucky to have gotten the campsites we did. But the majestic Tetons have a lot to offer in themselves so we knew there was going to be lots of exploring to be done while we are here.
We bought our last National Park Annual Pass last August at Bryce Canyon and it was well worth the $80. In that year, the girls started to really step up their Junior Ranger game and now we are officially hooked. We might not collect them all but we are damn well going to try. It was another no brainer to buy another pass today at Yellowstone.
Every once in a blue moon we end up having back-to-back transit days. Here in Wyoming, we have pretty poor Sprint reception. As a matter of fact, as we head out of Cheyenne, Sprint’s coverage completely disappears and we will be roaming on Verizon all the way to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. We used the last bit of our Sprint 3G connection to do some research on places to see in Cheyenne and decided that we should just keep driving north and east into South Dakota.
Today is going to be a long transit day. We have been in Colorado for over 10 days and we think it is time to move on. There are a lot more places we wish we can explore in Colorado but we are racing against the clock with our trip north. Only another month or so is left before some of these places start to get snow.
