Summer Adventure 2021: Week One/Two – On the Road Part Three

In this addition we travel from Great Basin National Park in eastern Nevada to Salt Lake City/Ogden, Utah and then on to Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming.

The road to Grand Teton National Park was marked with snow caped mountains and raging rivers filled with fresh ice cold snow melt water. We zigzagged through Utah, Wyoming and Idaho several times before arriving in the Grand Teton National Park.

Prior to arriving in the Grand Tetons, we stopped for a few days at Hill Air Force Base in Ogden, Utah just north of Salt Lake City to dump our holding tanks, fill up our fresh water tank, wash clothes and resupply our refrigerator and pantry.

While at Hill Air Force Base I had a flat tire on my ebike and had to get it replaced. Mark, a fellow retired military and RVer came to my rescue and did all the work replacing the inner tube on my bike, thanks a lot Mark! Take a look at the beauty and wonder of the Grand Teton National Park…

After our five mile hike around Jenny Lake we took the boat back across the lake to the visitor center. After lunch we road our ebikes around the Grand Teton National Park for about 19 miles. We had a great adventure in this beautiful National Park.

Next time we will be leaving Grand Tetons and traveling into Yellowstone National Park and then on to Henry’s Lake State park in Idaho…
