Yellowstone Pics and a thank you

When we were planning our current trip, we weren't sure we would include Yellowstone. Our first thots were to only visit Grand Teton. A couple of members here encouraged us to include YS and we took that advice. Thank goodness! Wow, what a beautiful place! We ran out of stamina before we ran out of desire to explore. Here are a few phone pics from our visit.

So...what did you think of Grand Teton - your original destination?

It was breathtaking as well. We live in south Texas where it is basically flat. Every time I go to the REAL mountains (not just hills) I am gobsmacked. The Tetons are a double-gob.

And I will add, the diversity of landscapes in Wyoming is amazing. We fell in love with the state.

Where did you camp while there, both Teton's and YS. What were the temperatures at night? Was thinking about hitting both on a return trip from Alaska. Maybe around Sept. 10th. This will be in 2016...

I check daily at Brooks Lake Lodge webcam, today was the first day I saw snow this season. Brooks Lake Lodge was an original stop for stage coach tourists that used to ride from the RR station in Lander to Yellowstone. Also used in movie Shane in the early '50's. Snow can happen in any month of the year, I drove through 5" of snow not far from Brook's Lake on U.S. 26 in July one summer! Luckily it usually melts pretty fast until late October or so.

We based in Dubois, Wy at the KOA (a very nice CG right next to the Wind River). This might be a good option for you. The locals were telling us about this particular area not getting much snow in a typical winter - average about 15 inches per year. There may be snow in YS and/or the Tetons, but most likely not here.

This is true of Dubois, very arid, badlands terrain. But, just 15 miles up U.S. 26 the ranch I stayed at for 20 summers gets about 10 feet of snow on the ground. Togwotee Pass, on the road to Moran Junction, YNP, and Jackson used to be closed for the winter from late Oct. to almost May. They've only been plowing it to keep it open a little more than 12 years.

Wow, the Dubois KOA is 55 miles from the entrance to Grand Teton NP. That's quite a trip every day. Thanks for sharing the photos.

Yes, it is quite a drive, but a pretty one.

Nope. Maybe in the mountains around, but not in town. We did have to defrost our windshield this morning before we headed out. There was frost on the ground. A mind bender for a south Texan - frost on sept 1 does not compute.

Stop in and have a piece of pie at the Cowboy Cafe. Right across the street is 'my' boardwalk plank, between Stewart's Trapline and the Two Oceans Bookstore. B FLINN
