    Grand Teton National Park - Wyoming

    August 7, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Got up early to leave the young people at Jackson Hole camp on the bank of the Snake. At 5.40am we synced our starts & blew that quiet little camp-site right across the river! 🤣 🤣 You should've heard it! 🤣 Headed down to the Grand Teton National Park to begin our trek up through Yellowstone & over the famous Beartooth Pass! Rained slightly enroute but no stopping to change clothing - great day more to come. 😎Read more

    West Thumb - Yellowstone

    August 7, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Just a nice lake vista! Check out the elk in the last photo. This is what they warned us about. Zoom in... he's big - that's me stopped beside him. Seen them nearly all now including a grizzly, deer, coyote, elk & lots of dead skunks!

    Jackson Hole

    May 30, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Pünktlich um 18.45 gings weiter von Denver, zum eigentlichen Start unserer Tour, nach Jackson Hole. Nach gut einer Stunde, über weite Ebenen und schneebedeckte Berge, landeten wir tatsächlich zusammen mit unserem Gepäck in Jackson. Mietwagen abholen ging fix, kurz eingecheckt im Motel "Antler Inn", gabs zum Abschluss eines langen Tages noch Burger mit Country Live Musik.Read more

    Ciao wüste, hallo rockie mountains

    August 9, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Ein kleines update zu den letzten tagen :D

    Alsooo... den 7. august haben wir eigentlich sehr erfolglos verbracht, dafür aber extrem nervenaufreibend. Wir haben die sorgen „wie kommen wir von Calgary nach Vancouver“ mit ach und krach eliminieren können und sind aus der wüste raus, also sehr positiv für uns :D

    Wir hatten die Wahl, 13 Stunden Busfahrt mit 15 Haltestopps oder 1,5 Stunden Flug- Preisdifferenz: 50 €. Ist klar was wir genommen haben oder :D es ist echt erstaunlich, dass man in kanada zwischen 2 eigentlich nicht so weit entfernten Orten solange im Flieger sitzen muss wie von Köln nach Venedig. Der Plan hat sich zwar jetzt um 1 Tag verschoben, das heißt wir bleiben bis zum 22.8. in calgary und fliegen dann nach vancouver, wo wir vom 22.-29. ein airbnb haben. Gott sei dank konnten wir die beiden Unterkünfte entsprechend anpassen und haben damit sogar 15 € gespart- yeeeeyyy :D eine weitere option war noch einen Mietwagen zu nehmen und dann selber nach vancouver zu fahren, was ich sehr cool gefunden hätte, allerdings verlangen die autoverleihfirmen eine gebühr von mindestens 700 kanadischen Dollars für die Überführung zurück von vancouver nach Calgary und das geht garnicht :D

    Zwischen kuhweiden und riesigen Salzseen (das ist natürlich kein schnee in dem 2. video, sondern Salz) in Salt Lake City konnten wir dann das ganze drama erstmal von der organisatorischen seite beenden und sind jetzt in der nähe des yellowstone nationalparks wo wir in 2 tagen 3 tage verbringen werden.

    Ansonsten haben wir nicht wirklich viel zu berichten, wir haben gestern den tag im regen und Gewitter an einem see gammelnd im auto verbracht un dexter gesuchtet, was sehr entspannt war :D und heute sind wir endlich nach gefühlt ewigkeiten wieder in den Genuss einer dusche gekommen. Außer einer provisorischen „Wilddusche“ in form einer Sonnendusche auf der kuhweide gab es nämlich keine alternativen für uns.

    Jetzt, geduscht und bald wieder mit frischen Klamotten, werden wir uns irgendwo hier in den bergen niederlassen und vielleicht schon mal anfangen auszumisten, da wir nicht alles wieder mitnehmen können. Blöderweise haben wir auch kein Handgepäck bei unserem flug von calgary nach Vancouver, wir werden ein zusätzliches Gepäckstück aufgeben müssen, wofür wir noch einen Koffer brauchen werden. Den werde ich im kanadischen eBay Kleinanzeigen suchen wenn wir in calgary sind. Koffer können ja nie schaden und für unseren Rückflug nach Deutschland hätten Vermutlich sowieso einen weiteren Koffer gebraucht da wir unsere ganzen Winterklamotten diesmal nicht Am Körper tragen können :D

    Auf unserem Plan stehen jetzt aber erstmal noch 3 Nationalparks, davon 2 extrem coole. Bei dem anderen bin ich mir noch nicht so sicher :D

    Euch allen ein schönes Wochenende :D

    Ps: ich habe heute gelernt dass Asiaten und/oder alte Menschen sich benehmen können wie das allerletzte. Bei der ersten Gruppe wusste ich das ja schon aber dass alte Menschen (60+) so eklig sein können wusste ich wirklich nicht. Und es waren nicht mal Russen 😭.

    Beary good day, Teton Village

    June 24, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    Our last day in Jackson and we decided to start early and retrace our steps from yesterday’s safari and see if we can find some interesting wildlife. It was very different without binoculars, but we did find Elk, Deer, and we found a moose and her calf, and she was only 20 metres away. I carefully got up close being aware that a moose with calf is very dangerous. Using a tree as cover I got to about 10 metres from her, when she looked straight at me and took a step in my direction I retreated with staggering speed. Our search continued in all the likely haunts but sadly no bear.
    On return from the wilderness we went back to the visitor’s centre, had lunch and checked out the shops again. We took a stage coach ride around town, which was a relaxing way to take in the sights. We are really getting into the cowboy way of life. Laundry was on the agenda so Noela took care of that whilst I stayed in town before the 2 – mile walk back to the motel, should have caught the shuttle.
    Late in the day at around 5.15 we drove around to Teton Village. Carl and Paola had checked this out earlier in the day and discovered that the Gondola to 9000 plus feet is free after 5 PM. The Traam to the top is $40 and goes to 10,000ft so we opted for the cheap seats on the gondola instead. As we were boarding another passenger told us of a bear at stanchion 19 or 20. Well hello bear, a black bear cub directly below us. Cameras went crazy and to make sure we did another circuit, yes, it was still there, Carl was a happy man and we were all pretty stoked as well.
    We celebrated with a light meal and a cold beverage at the Piste Bar at 9250 ft. We were not really dressed for the late afternoon shadows and the chill as the temperature plummeted to single digits. But dinner was great, the beer super cold and the company awesome.
    We again boarded the gondola for the ride down the mountain and our bear was still there, so we did yet another lap. The lift attendant must have wondered what these grown adults were up to riding around and around on the lift.
    Finally, back at the car we fuelled for tomorrow and bid 3 great days at Jackson goodbye. Tomorrow Yellowstone and probably more bear hunting.

    Yellowstone part one

    September 7, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    I explored the upper loop of Yellowstone today. The weather has changed for the worst. Temperatures have dropped and it rained a bit this morning and will rain some more tomorrow. But wasn't an issue today, besides having to wear a warm sweater.

    Was originally planning on doing a big hike, but apparently the grizzly bears are very active in September, and it is not advised to hike alone or without bear spray. So I only did the more easy accessable smaller trails. I ended up walking a lot still and seeing a lot.

    Arrived at the campground around 19h30 and decided to put my tent back in the van and just sleep in my van instead of being cold in my tent. Really glad I converted my van. My bed in here is actually very comfortable and I don't mind sleeping in the van.

    But after writing a lot today, I better get some sleep to do Yellowstone part II tomorrow.

    On Safari, Grand Tetons

    June 23, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    5.50 AM pick up in an 8 seat off road van, equipped with high powered binoculars and spotting scopes all from Jackson Eco Tours. From the outset it appeared that we had a great guide Chelsea, extremely welcoming and knowledgeable. We picked up another couple Paula and Tome from Jackson Lodge and we were on our way.

    These guide are in 2 way comms with each other so they can compare and share locations of the very elusive wildlife. Our first spotting was pronghorn (Antelope) and we were truly lucky to see the doe in full flight chasing a Kyote away from her fawn. This was a very rare event and something that Chelsea had not even seen. In the same place a lone Bison.

    We received a call to get to a second location where there were several moose. A Bull feeding on cress in the creek and several cows, one with calf grazing. We saw seven of these in total. Next were a pair of Elk beside the road very close up. We saw Prairie Dogs, ground Squirrels, Crane and dear, but the Grizzlys and Black bears eluded us much to Carls dismay.

    We hunted up hill and down dale and even sacrificed ourselves to Mosquitos, Chelsea went to extraordinary lengths to find them but just not happening today.

    Light breakfast was supplied and we had a great picnic lunch provided when we stopped on the shore of Jackson Lake. On our last stop I offered to photograph to guys touring on mountain bikes. As it turned out it was an aussie father and son who were competing in the Bamff to Mexico Great Divide bike ride. What an amazing feat.

    8 hours of value and information, we had some great laughs with the other couple exchanging various stories. Thanks to Eco Tours for a spectacular day.

    Back in Jackson we caught the free shuttle back into town for some shopping, browsing and a coffee before a light meal.

    Yellowstone part two

    September 8, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

    The day started cold and rainy and ended cold and rainy. But besides the weather, I had the possibility to watch a lot of steamy pools. I smelled enough sulphur for the next year! But most of those geysers, hot springs and mud vulcanos were actually really impressive. So I had fun looking and listening to the boiling of water or even mud. I ended the day with the old faithful. I was lucky that I arrived at it in time for it's eruption. Which was a small event on itself. Tomorrow I'm driving to Grand Teton. Hopefully I can find some WiFi there to upload this, or hopefully my very crappy phone service I bought here will finally work. We will see.Read more
