We have had a great summer here with our LD friends – Ron/Jane, Dave/Celeste, and Jim for most of the time. Steve T., Ed/Carol/Gopher, and Doug/Beth/Heidi for part of the time. We had socials every afternoon and Beth surprised us with a delicious cake.
John and Jim went kayaking on the Snake River with Ron and Jane and had a great time, as you can see from the pictures. Sadie and I stayed home that day.
One day John, Jim, and I went to the top of Signal Mountain, an elevation of 7700 ft. and had a great view of the Snake River. After that we went to the Signal Mountain Lodge for lunch and had wonderful food.
Several times while we were here we had mail delivered to Kelly, WY post office. It has very limited hours – 10 to 2 weekdays, and 10 to 12 on Saturday. It is a very quaint post office.
Besides having our get togethers with our friends, the other day a HUGE bison started walking to our group, just under the awning of our rig. He came right at us at a very slow pace and at the last minute veered off to go around our rig.
Later that evening a whole herd of bison were crossing the field behind our rig.
The next morning, John and Sadie went out and saw a place behind our rig where they suspected a moose had been sleeping. They went around our rig and there was the moose.
We have had a great summer here in the Grand Tetons with hiking, biking, kayaking and socializing. Tomorrow (August 22) we head back towards to Colorado.
