OK, thanks B-Rad......anyhoo, The Grand Tetons were awesome! This was probably one of my favorite parts of this trip. From South Yellowstone I ran down to Jackson and ended up taking 191 along the river headed to Rock Springs. This whole drive was scenic and fun. I found a cheapo motel in RS and settled in for some much needed sleep.

my first look at the Tetons
















I stopped a few times for pics and stopped in Jackson for a burger, saw wome characters on KLRs and one V-Strom from Canada, got to talking and they were doing a "continental divide" trip. The character with the beard told me about how rough the trail was, sprained his ankle, and used duct tape to fix it up! Tough old fart for sure....

CLICK for boring video.

I left Jackson headed to Pinedale an 191, nice scenic road along the river with lots of recreation opportunities along the way.



Stopped in Pinedale and got a new atlas and some Sushi.




About an hour or so out of Pinedale I stopped and put on the raingear because I was watching this for a while..I never got rained on that much but I did hit a wall of wind that scared the shit out of me I thought I was going down, I stopped and it was all I could do to put the stand down and push hard on the bike to keep it upright......





Made it to Rock Springs and checked into the cheapo interstate motel to get some sleep and plan my route into Denver....

This is fun, thanks for sharing. I have been on many of these same stretches. Damn fine country to both ride in and to just 'take in' all around you.

I spent 5 days in Denver visiting my son who lives there and my Daughter who flew in from Quebec city to see me. I had not seen them in some years and this was the purpose of this entire motorcycle trip. They are beautiful kids, and it was great to see them.



We spent one day in downtown Denver seeing the sights and people....









There was this charachter which we named transformer man; he was working the crowd and doing a good job of entertaining..
