Default Road Trippin..... heavy pics !!!

We left Texas and it's hot weather behind, and headed up to Colorado. Stopped in Denver to see a Rockies game, Robinson Cano tossed the boy a ball - he was so excited. Beautiful stadium







Then after a couple of days we moved north













Then onward and upward to the Grand Tetons



The view from our Condo







The Summit









Back in town....







North to Montana tomorrow.....

Me and the family just got back from a week in Yellowstone, that daylight at 430 and dark at 930 sure does mess you up. The scenery is great though, have fun and safe travels.

Where did you spend the night in Gardiner? Are you staying mostly in hotels or cabins and bed-n-breakfast places?

Been allover the country the same way. We'd load the car and drive. Rarely had reservations, pick a hotel or a camp ground and sleep.

Mostly is condos but they have been really cool / nice.
Tetons was the Aspens for 4 days




Absaroka Lodge in Gardiner (motel) with a good view


Snow King Hotel (but it's a condo) in Jackson Hole
