When you come down on the Idaho side you come to willow camp ground


Then you go down to mink creek




Then you head over to HWY 36 in Idaho and head north

to Yellowstone on dirt

After I went down into Soda Springs I headed north on Hwy34 to almost Wayne and tuned north on Grays lake road


After Grays lake road I turned onto Brockman road



And onto forest road 077 that's when things started to look real neat

They also call it Sky line road and you do get up right on top of things






Oh that's the Grand teton in the far horizon

and if I stayed on this road, sky line, that turns into kepps crossing it would bring me to Idaho falls and down to see inmate BYWAYS but I turned down 077
and headed to Swan Valley and the Snake river

Then I hit the slab up Hwy 31 over to Victor

then from Victor I went over Teton pass to Wilson

And then looking down on Wilson and Jackson Hole
Then in Wilson I turned north and went into the Grand Teton park

and then THE GRAND TETONS "Grand Teton" means "large TEAT" in French YOU KNOW

and then up to colter bay camp ground for the first night of camping

well that's the first day
