Road Trip thru Americas western National Parks
We are a week into our road trip thru 4 western National Parks on our way up to our summer at Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch where I'll be sharpening my healthy cooking and Shirley will be teaching Yoga. We have visited Bryce, Capital Reef, Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. So far we have
hiked over 40 miles of trails thru some of the most spectacular scenery, flora, and fauna. We are staying a few days outside of West Yellowstone in Idaho, and after some great sunny weather, thunderstorms have rolled in with a threat of snow coming in the next day or so. Hunkered down in a condo, I decided to catch up on my blogging and share some pictures.
COVID has had some negative effects on our visits with most of the visitor centers and services closed in the national parks. It is interesting to see how different cities, businesses and people are adapting to the pandemic. From no breakfast in hotels to digital menus in restaurants, it has been a different experience this summer so far. We are so grateful for having this opportunity, both for the summer and the road trip heading north.
My favorite park by far has to be the Grand Tetons. It truly is a magnificent place with the Tetons range majestically rising above the plains. We've seen elk, deer, buffalo and countless ground critters along the way. Still looking forward to a few more days of hiking in Yellowstone before our road trip winds down and we arrive in Stanley, ID.
