    Island Park [Mittwoch, 03.08, Tag 5]

    August 3, 2016 in the United States

    Die letzte Etappe zum Yellowstone Nationalpark stand heute an. Nachdem wir eine Weile durch endlose Grasflächen mit unzähligen, riesigen Ranchen gefahren sind, haben wir unser erstes Ziel, die Grant Kohrs Ranch im Deer Valley besucht. Die etwa 11.000 ha große Ranch dient hauptsächlich dazu, den Besuchern eine Vorstellung davon zu geben, wie das Ranchleben früher ausgesehen hat und wie hart dieses war und wird heute nur noch zum Teil bewirtschaftet. Eine supernette Tangerine hat uns das über 200 Jahre alte, noch orginal ausgestattetes Ranchhaus gezeigt und uns die Geschichte der dort früher lebenden (deutschen) Familie erzählt hat. Bei unserem anschließenden Rundgang über die Ranch, haben wir lauter nette Arbeiter getroffen, die uns breitwillig gezeigt haben, wie man echten Cowyboykaffee herstellt oder wie man einen Bohrer schmiedet. Zum Abschluss durften wir noch eine Runde mit dem Planwagen, der von den sogenannten Draft-Horses, riesigen schwarze Kaltblüter, gezogen wurde, über die Ranch drehen. Dabei hat uns ein Cowboy, nachdem er erfahren hat, dass wir deutsch sprechen, auf österreichisch weitere Informationen über die Ranch erzählt.
    Danach ging's weiter zur Virginia City. Die alte Westernstadt wurde für Touristen authentisch rekonstruiert und zusätzlich mit einigen Westernstores ausgestatteten. Nach einem Besuch im Saloon & Co haben wir das letzte Stückchen zum Yellowstone Nationalpark angetreten. Wir haben dabei Montana (leider) wieder verlassen und sind wieder Idaho.
    Jetzt sind wir auf einem Campingplatz am See in Island Park und schlagen dort unser Lager auf.

    Relaxing, progress day

    July 9 in the United States

    With Sue back at home visiting a recuperating of Daddy-O, I tried to get some things done that I have been avoiding.

    After over thirty seven days of travel and 4,800 miles on the road, my white Jeep was showing a lot of wear....mostly road dirt, dust and BUGS. RosieBus is also in need of attention. Therefore, it’s washday. It took about three hours but all looks great now, for the areas I can reach. Quite a bit remains above the RosieBus windshield, oh well.

    After that, a nice shower and grilled a steak. It is hard to ask for more when you add a big block of ice and a nice helping of Weller bourbon.

    If only this site had TV (over air), good cell service, etc. my WiFi is inop so I have to use my cell hot spot.

    At least I wore Rosie out.

    Before Leaving Yellowstone RV Resort

    July 12 in the United States

    Walking Rosie at sunset, a task we both enjoy, I decided to take a "loop" and walk out of the resort, east on the approach road, and "sneak" into the resort from the back side. I'll acknowledge that this "footprint" is for my recollection alone as I decided I needed some images and notes so when I'm sitting at home and no longer traveling, I really want to remember the beauty I've experienced.

    Frankly, this is a less than a high-quality RV park. HOWEVER, where it sits boggles the mind in beauty, majesty and subtleness in its incredible views. Maybe it's just that I haven't traveled the interior of the US that much (a bucket list I'm striving to resolve), but tonight, it struck me that I have rarely, if ever seen this kind of overwhelming beauty...just farmland, but what farmland. So meticulously cared for, the miles and miles of wheat (I assume) and miles and miles of incredible irrigation systems...

    So these pictures are for me and my memory, but I think anyone that really looks at them (zoom in, I recommend it) will see a small part of what I've experienced....

    Got Tetons?

    July 10 in the United States

    Took a ride up the "Mesa Falls Scenic Highway" which heads north from Ashton, Idaho....and not only includes incredible views of the Henry's Fork River and Mesa falls, upper and lower, but the Tetons and miles and miles of farmland. It appears to be wheat but its smaller than I'm used to....it may be only cattle feed as there are thousands of bales (BIG bales) being harvested.

    I remain in AWE of the beauty of this country and the incredible calming nature of each turn on the highway. It cannot be emphasized enough..My RV park resides at over 5,000' and the Mesa Falls highway hit 7,800' in places. I've grown accustomed to the high altitude (finally).

    I'll add only significant photos but frankly, its really hard to capture the grander, as an iPhone just doesn't do it justice and the sky changes so frequently. I think these capture the spirit though.... As I'm limited to 10 pictures per footprint, THIS one will take two footprints...

    Yellowstone Golf/RV Resort

    July 7 in the United States

    Originally scheduled to be here on July 4th, so we could access Jackson Hole. However, it’s NOT a “resort” and it’s not close to Jackson Hole (it was as close as I could find for the 4th. Since I had reservations, it was use them or lose them (still have to pay).

    So we got here intending a week, as a base camp.

    However, the space is pretty basic, but acceptable. Gravel drives. So it’s dusty.

    Regardless, Sue’s dad (Daddy-O) isn’t doing well so I’ll get her to an airport, nearest one is an hour drive so she can head home. Rosie and I will either stay here and use our 7 days or relocate to a park where I can get a longer term and drive back to be with the family.

    It’s a fluid situation, but Sue either leaves today or tomorrow.

    Was having issues with my Jeep, which would be really bad right now, so I took it out to “run it” while Sue gets ready. On the way back, I saw why this park is attractive. It actually sits in the middle of massive farm fields, of various crops..... with no trees except for the park. When we arrived yesterday, it was hazy to the east and we didn’t notice the VIEW.

    Also last night, I tried and failed getting rhe grill started (don’t ask) so Sue crafted an amazing meal inside.

    Island Park - Buffalo RV Park

    July 5, 2017 in the United States

    Kurz vor dem Yellowstone Park wollten wir noch einmal übernachten, in der Hoffnung, dass wir, wenn wir früh dran sind, dann morgen im Park etwas finden. So wird es zumindest immer beschrieben, weil einige Plätze nicht vorab buchbar sind. Mal sehen, ob wir Glück haben.
    So sollte es für heute ein unspektakulärer, aber sauberer Campground in Island Park sein. Als wir dort ankamen, wollte ich unbedingt noch mal ins Wasser springen und das haben wir dann auch alle im Buffalo River gemacht, wenn auch der Herr Gemahl erst nicht so Lust hatte, waren wir danach alle über die Abkühlung sehr froh. Für Elliott war das super, weil der Fluss so flach war, dass er überall stehen konnte. Wenn an der Stelle auch darüber ne fette Straße war, war es trotzdem super, weil das Wasser so klar und sauber war. Toll.
    Unser Feierabendbierchen haben wir dann aber leider bei bedecktem Himmel trinken müssen.
    Und wieder ging ein schöner Tag zu Ende.

    Island Park

    August 26, 2017 in the United States

    Now we're driving through Island Park, a cute little town with year round recreation. There's Buffalo River and above the dam Island Park Reservoir, and there's even a sno-park. Most of the buildings are the beautiful Teton lodge-style log construction. I would totally stay here!

    Chocolate Moose Royale

    April 23, 2016 in the United States

    Embroidery, floral arrangements, assorted jewelry and art, specialty chocolate and coffee drinks, homemade treats, and thank goodness, plain hot tea. It took 15 minutes to get, but there was plenty to divert the eyes. Oh, I forgot ... farm fresh eggs, now in the fridge in the back.

    I learned from the bathroom bulletin board that we have only ourselves to blame for all the increased violence and crime today. We took down all the phone booths and now Superman has no place to change.Read more
