Left Jackson Wyoming yesterday morning and proceeded north to Yellowstone. Promptly got lost and figured out I was about 40 miles East of the turn I should have taken, but I did get to play in the snow before I turned around.







After taking the right route, I got to Grand Teton NP pretty quick, this is the first thing you see after entering the park. Killer!



This is a cool picture I've wanted in my collection for awhile. Ride the divide!!



Got to Old Faithful at about 5, literally minutes after it erupted so I walked around for about an hour waiting for the next one. It happened exactly as the sun was dropping behind the mountains to the West, you can see during the course of the eruption that the sun stopped hitting the base, you can still see it lighting up the top of the plume.





And one glamour shot of Sasha getting her first geothermal steam bath to end the day



Stayed in West yellowstone last night, I'm going to go back and see if I missed anything cool in Yellowstone today then head North to Montana. Getting colder!

Great photos and report! I thought they were HDR's. I'll have to check out Lightroom4.

If you take 287 up through the Madison river valley into Montana make sure to check out Virginia City. And make sure to top off your tank in W. Yellowstone if you do take that route.

Stayed in West yellowstone, just a few minutes West of the park and it was easy to hop right back over in the morning. First thing I came across was Gibbons Falls.



Fishing, just like any other sport. Pictures or it didnt happen lol.



Hit a traffic jam, Yellowstone style..







The scenery changes during the Nothern half of the park, beautiful prairies but still mountains in the distance.





Most days I skip breakfast and have a light lunch (then try to kill myself with food at dinner lol. This was my lunch spot on my last day in Yellowstone.



As soon as you exit the park you enter Gardiner Montana, the local football team there has an interesting way of maintaining there field.



About 3 miles south of Livingston Montana , on 89, was the coolest little cigar shop I've been too. Talked life, career, politics and women with Bob the owner. Highly recommended if you're in the area.



And how can you resist playing with Millie!! Haven't seen my dog in over a month so this was a nice treat.



Unfortunately, it's also the place I noticed this



So I've been in Bozeman Montana trying to sort this out. I had a rebuild kit sent to me from Cali and a local shop said he could do it. I took it over there today and quickly decided that guy wasn't gonna be touching my bike. So I think I'm just going to ride and see how the shock holds up. If I can make it to Beemershop in Cali, I trust those guys to do the work. So fingers crossed, adventure!!!

Make sure it is not school holidays or tourist season! Worse traffic jams than rush hour traffic!
