2nd Post Friday ... Twin Falls to Jackson Hole
No, there is no hole. But, we are in Jackson Hole at the Painted Buffalo Inn. We went 260 miles and we were thinking it wasn't going to look good. We went about two miles and ran into a Harley dealership. It was named Snake Harley Davidson. So, David had to ask, what is the "snake" for? Well apparently we are right next to the Snake River. That didn't mean much to two Fruitportians, however. But then ... the pictures you see are five miles down the road and are of the Snake River. How long is the Snake River? We have no idea. We went 260 miles today and are in another state (Wyoming) and the river is just down the road. Pretty big river. Pretty clean river, too. It looks like Lake Charlevoix, but on the move. Then we road into the Rockies. We think we went up for about five miles. The drop off wasn't as bad as the Pacific Coast Highway but for some reason it just felt more dangerous. We had a great day. 20 days in a row with no rain. And, it looks good for tomorrow when we stop and see Old Faithful and then through Yellowstone and then onto Cody, Wyoming for a rodeo. To get ready for the rodeo David is actually watching a rodeo on television tonight.
