Gearing up to travel

Each year Kinsey tries to take at least two trips in our RV which she calls Clementine. Here in Montana there are only six months to get the trips in, if you are lucky. Kinsey prefers to get the trips in before the tourists arrive and after they thin out. Our spring trip this year was to St. Mary on the Blackfeet Reservation and in July we took a quick trip to the Blackfeet Pow Wow in Browning. This is the first in a series of posts recounting our experiences on the trip we just finished to Yellowstone and the Tetons.

The Eagle Has Landed

Well, Kinsey and I have landed. Which means we made it home from our latest adventure.

We had a super duper time of it. I think Kinsey is a little pooped out. I'm not a lot of help accept for supervision and getting under foot. This was my longest road trip ever and I'm beginning to appreciate that solo RV'ing is a lot of work. Thank goodness Kinsey really loves it despite the work and responsibility. The old girl is pretty handy I'll grant her that.

Our trip took us down to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We mostly just drove through Yellowstone and Grand Teton National parks. US national parks don't allow dogs on the trail so we explored the surrounding national forests. What adventures we did have. We even met a movie star fly fishing on the Madison River in Montana.

So, stay tuned. I kept notes on all our travel experiences and as soon as Kinsey recovers I'll be after her to process the photos of our trip so I can show you as well as tell you about all the cool stuff we saw and experieinced.

The below photo is just one I got her to do for me. It's a picture of our rig at the Yellowstone Holiday RV park on Hebgen Lake in Montana. It was a very cool place to end our trip. We were right on the water!

The photo was taken at sunrise. I don't seem to be in it so I musta still been snoozing.

Ciao for now.

Jackson Hole Wyoming

Wowie! Zowie! I'm on my second RV trip and it's been awesome so far.

No internet for five days. Been in Yellowstone and the Gallatin National Forest. Going to have some great stories and photos to share.

Got into Jackson Hole yesterday afternoon. The fall colors in the Tetons are incredibly beautiful. Can't wait to get out hiking.

Weather is very warm and sunny. Must be why there are still so many tourists around. In Jackson Hole itself the traffic is bumper to bumper. Kinsey was very surprised. She hasn't been here for about six years but thought the tourists would have thinned out by now. According to one local we talked to, it has! That is hard to imagine.

Don't have any photos for you as Kinsey isn't processing any on this trip.

Ciao for now!

Flathead Sunrise-Tobacco Valley Sunset

On a recent trip to the Flathead we experienced a really beautiful sunrise. I think it was beautiful.

But, then, shortly thereafter we had  this sunset in the Tobacco Valley. Really kinda tough to choose a favorite.

Tobacco Valley Sunset

One thing's for sure, sunrise or sunset NW Montana has them! Fall is a particularly prolific time for sunrises and sunsets.
