On June 8, we headed towards Gros Ventre at Grand Tetons. Along the way we passed through some beautiful scenery and a great donut shop in Dubois, WY. We had stopped there on a previous trip and couldn’t wait to get back. Their cinnamon twist and cinnamon roll are great. It is called Daylight Donut.
When arriving at Gros Ventre we were able to get our favorite spot, #36, which has great cell and satellite. The first night 2 moose meandered by the campground, right next to our rig. I couldn’t get a very good picture as the light was really low.
We stayed there until Sunday, June 8. Leaving the campground we went to do wash at the Missing Sock Laundromat (very appropriate name since I lost a sock this time) and shopping at Smiths Market, which is in the family with King Sooper which we shop at in Colorado.
On our way to the laundromat we went passed a big slide area that was in all the news at Jackson several months ago. A brand new Walgreens was being built when the slide happened and it came to a halt.
Traveling along the Alpine Junction, which is also Highway 89/26, was a beautiful drive along a huge body of water and river. We found a Mexican Restaurant on Yelp called Morenitas, in Idaho Falls. So we stopped there for lunch and it was wonderful. Chili Relleno the way it used to be made, meat filled tacos, and delicious cheese enchilada. That night we stayed at Beaverhead Campground at Clark Canyon Reservoir. There were a few rigs there, but the price was right – free. We had a great view of the reservoir.\
The next night we camped outside St. Regis, MT, at the Sloway NFS campground. It runs right along the river, but we are more in the huge trees. Each site has a good bundle of firewood. It is a deal at $5 (with the old-age pass). Normally it is $10 a night. However a train comes through quite a few times a day and blows it’s whistle, plus there is a little road noise from I90.
