Road trip to Yellowstone: (From Salt Lake City to Jackson Hole)
It has been a long-time dream of ours to visit Yellowstone NP in Wyoming. We've been talking about it year in and year out, yet we have not visited yet. Finally, this year, after the Hawaii trip (which I have yet to blog about, btw) the possibility of Yellowstone as a long weekend destination arose again. This time we thought, why the heck not do it so we could finally stop talking about it. I'm pretty sure our friends are tired of hearing about us wanting to see Yellowstone.
To cut cost, we flew in to Salt Lake City, Utah and drove about 5 hours to Jackson Hole in Wyoming. We left SFO at about 6 am and arrived an hour later. After getting the rental car, we drove to get breakfast and supplies (water, snacks, etc). We had a spectacularly scenic drive through Utah, Idaho and finally Wyoming.
The five hours went by quickly, as I absorbed the passing scenery with much gusto. I love long car rides - to me they are therapeutic.
We left Thursday, Oct 4 and returned Sunday, Oct 7.
This is the beginning of a beautiful adventure:
I know I posted a lot of images here. Well, I had 5 hours to do drive-by shooting, can you blame me? The only delay we had was when the cattle decided to block the highway. We didn't get mad, we were amused.
