Summer Adventure 2021: Week Two – On the Road Part Four

In week two we traveled from the Grand Teton National Park to Yellowstone National Park and then we continued into Idaho to Henry’s Lake State Park about 15 miles west of Yellowstone.

Grand Tetons and Yellowstone’s borders touch and these parks together cover a massive area larger than some states. Snow caped mountains, wild rivers, water falls, and mountain lakes are everywhere.

MaryAnn and I had been here around 20 years ago, but things are not what we remember. But what we did remember is the unsurpassed beauty and splendor of this place. Everywhere we looked was a declaration of God’s power and a testimony of His grace and His hand in this magnificent world in which we live.

Let’s take a look at God’s handiwork…

The entrance was hard to get a picture of because of all the people trying to get their picture taken in front of the sign.

We stopped to get some pictures of a herd of Bison.
MaryAnn isn’t as close to the Bison as it may appear.
Had to stop at Old Faithful just like all the other hundreds of thousands of people.

Mosquitoes at Henry’s Lake were so bad that we had to leave the next day and head north. The dots on the side of the van are mosquitoes, the Van was covered with them!

From Henry’s Lake we continued north to Malmstrom AFB in Great Falls, Montana. We stayed through the weekend at Great Falls to resupply, do laundry and dump tanks in preparation for boondocking in the National Forest in week three. Until next time, safe travels my friends…
