Jul 11, 2010 - Montpelier, Idaho to Salt Lake City, Utah

Breakfast was homemade in the breakfast room which was French toast, hard boiled eggs, biscuits and gravy, blueberry muffins, coffee, tea and juice. I overheard a man in the dining area while waiting for my french toast, he was telling someone that Montpelier is Mormon Country. We travelled to Draper Utah to The Cowabunga Bay Water Park that John and Christina fabricated in the White Water in Surrey. John did the welding and pipe work and Christina sanded and painted palm trees for this particular water park (we saw the blue prints for this...

Jul 10, 2010 - Yellowstone National Park to Montpellier Idaho

This morning was overcast, cool and a little windy the temperature was between 16- 21 degrees depending on where we were along the way to Yellowstone. We travelled to some more Geyser's today along the way to Old Faithful. At the Old Faithful Lodge we sat on the covered deck in these beautiful handmade rocking chairs, Shawn and I enjoyed a coffee together. Old Faithful gave a wonderful "show" at 1 pm, we were on the back side of the wooden walk way for a better view and better pictures to show the height of old Faithful compared to the...

Jun 25, 2010 - Yellowstone NP to Montpelier Idaho

Yellowstone National Park to Montpelier Idaho 385 miles (total trip miles 2,337) Because of the traffic yesterday in the park we decided to leave the hotel early. It was drizzling a bit so we put our rain gear on just in case. The traffic was light so we cruised around the park checking out the areas we had not seen yet. The herd of Bison we had seen the night before was still grazing by the river. From the west entrance of the park we went to Yellowstone Lake, it was a beautiful ride with the lake in the foreground and snowcapped...

Jun 14, 2010 - Journey North

On the road again. We left Estes Park on a rainy Saturday morning. We had done our preparations the night before. So it wasn't too bad of a take off, even though we got pretty wet attending to last minute things. Dumping at the station, etc. As planned, we went out to breakfast first thing in the morning. After a great breakfast, we took a ride through town to practice our departure route one more time. It gets kind of tight going through town, but eliminated a steep climb going the way we came in. We located the barely visible 'truck...

Sep 5, 2008 - Fantastic Drive

The drive today was simply beautiful - one of the reasons we are on the road! After leaving Jackson, Route 89S took us through three National Forests - Targhee, Bridger, and Caribou. The Snake River runs through all three and creates some magnificent views. Such a treat to take such a gorgeous ride.

Aug 11, 2008 - Colter Bay Cmpg, Grand Teton to Montpelier ID KOA

Monday I set my alarm for the 2nd time on this trip in order to ensure that we left Colter Bay Cmpg timely to arrive at the Jenny Lake Ferry. This cmpg has full hookups so we were not dry camping and had water, electricity and sewer to unhook. Yea we did it and were on the road by 0845. Upon arrival at Jenny Lake we found parking easily and all headed to the boat. It was a short 30 minute ride from the east dock on Jenny Lake to the west dock for some hiking trails. Dad, Mom and I did not have on our hiking boots but we set out on a 1/2...

Jun 6, 2008 - Montpelier, Idaho

Our morning in Provo got off to a bad start. We always check that the light on the Jeep work with the lights on Arvy. They are wired to by in synch. Not so much this morning. The passenger side tail light on the Jeep did not work with Arvy. We went back to the nearby mall to the Sears automotive store. The manager offered to let one of his guys change the bulb for us if we bought the bulb from him. We did and he did. But, that didn't fix the problem...still no glowing light. So, using our "Next Exit" book we found an RV dealer off I15 North...

May 14, 2008 - Montpelier, Idaho

Today we drove back to Montpelier, Idaho for another lunch at the Artic Burger. This is the first time we have seen this burger place, they have delicious food, we hope it’s not the last time. :-) We also did a bit of geocaching while in town. Montpelier is a city located in Bear Lake County, Idaho. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 2,785. The city is largest community in the Bear Lake Valley, a farming region north of Bear Lake in southeastern Idaho along the Utah border. It was settled in 1863 by Mormon pioneers on...

Jul 17, 2007 - Montpelier, Idaho

With our travel plans interrupted we had to rearraange our stops. Our next stop was the Montpelier KOA. It was just a one nighter and it was tucked away up in the mountains so there was no internet or cell service. We went to town and after about 5 minutes we had seen everything there was to see so we stopped for a real restaurant meal and really enjoyed it. Tank was in the shade so he was a happy camper. I forgot to take pictures on the one nighters. I guess there was just not enough down time to think about it. When we got up the next...

Jul 5, 2007 - Idaho

The drive from Promontory back through Brigham City was flat Great Salt Lake plain, but the drive on to Logan was a constant climb, and more climbing to the 7,000'+ overlook to Bear Lake. We stopped in Garden City, the last Utah town and got one of the raspberry shakes they are famous for, then pushed on to this KOA campground (or as they say, Kampground) where we have WiFi and can update this thing. Tomorrow the Tetons.
