    Beary good day, Teton Village

    June 24 in the United States

    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.

    On Safari, Grand Tetons

    June 23 in the United States

    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.

    Colorful Yellowstone

    August 11 in the United States

    Nachdem wir heute bereits malerische Landschaften und Bisons entdeckt haben, widmen wir uns den Rest des Tages den Geysieren und heißen Quellen im Park. Sie schimmern in vielen interessanten Farben und blubbern zum Teil aufgrund des heißen Wassers aus der Tiefe. Zum Sonnenuntergang schauen wir uns den wohl bekanntesten Geysir des Parks an, den Old Faithful.Read more

    Grand Teton Nationalpark

    August 12 in the United States

    Vom Yellowstone Nationalpark aus fahren wir in den südlich angrenzenden Grand Teton Nationalpark. Die Landschaft ist hier insgesamt etwas flacher, aber die Gebirgskette auf der westlichen Seite hebt sich imposant von der restlichen Umgebung ab. Plötzlich galoppiert ein Alpaca vor uns über die Straße. Wir sind uns nach wie vor nicht sicher, ob das Alpaca hier tatsächlich hergehört oder irgendwo ausgebüchst ist. Wir fahren zu einem See am Fuß der Berge und überqueren ihn zu Dritt im Kanu. Die Bootsmiete ist hier deutlich günstiger als zuletzt in Kanada. Auf der anderen Seite kommen wir nicht am Wanderweg an, sondern an einem kleinen Strand. Wir schlagen uns ein Stück durch die Wildnis im Bear County, bis wir auf einen Weg treffen, der zu einem Wasserfall führt. Wie wir erst an einer Kreuzung feststellen, ist unser Teil des Wegs eigentlich derzeit gesperrt. Was soll man machen, wir müssen ja später wieder zum Boot zurück... Also erkunden wir den Wasserfall, treten den Rückweg zum Boot an und überqueren den See ein zweites Mal. Wie wir später erfahren, hätte uns unsere kleine Erkundungstour gut $1000 pro Person kosten können, wenn wir erwischt worden wären.

    Abends übernachten wir außerhalb des Parks in einer Lodge in Jackson. Das erste mal seit 63 Tagen, dass wir nicht in Keji übernachten. Da die Lodge nur ein wenig teurer war als der Campground, haben wir uns mal ein richtiges Bett gegönnt. Jacksons Zentrum ist eine gemütliche Kleinstadt mit Westernflair. Im "Million Dollar Steakhouse" gönnen wir uns ein ausgiebiges Abendessen, wo sogar Bisonfleisch auf der Karte steht. Die Preise des Restaurants machen dem Namen alle Ehre. Nach dem Essen lassen wir den Abend in der "Million Dollar Cowboy Bar" an der Theke auf Pferdesätteln ausklingen.
