Day Twenty-one - Colter Bay, Grand Teton Natl. Park WY to Idaho Falls ID - July 19, 2010

Out of Colter Bay early in the morning, we head for Idaho Falls ID for a reality check on the motor home systems, before continuing our vacation trip.  

It is a perfect opportunity to enjoy the scenery we missed a few days ago when we took the alternate route from Island Park over the Teton Pass.  This road follows the Snake River and gives the best views of it that we have had so far, and I cannot resist taking a few more pictures of the Teton Mountain Range.

Seeing the ski runs of a resort in Jackson brings back memories of the times we skied -- few in number, but large in thrills.  As the Snake River snakes along the sides of the mountains, we see canoes, rafts, drift boats, and fishermen.  Some of the roadwork is a very tall boom hoisting steel netting up the mountainside to contain falling rock.

Back in Idaho we pass fields of Idaho potatoes, and grain tall enough to be rippled by the wind as it blows across the pasture.  

It is a strange sight to see a Sam's Club and Walmart, which we left behind many days ago, and we take advantage of the products and services they have to offer. Jake likes the grassy area where we park the motor home, and plays retrieve the ball and roll in the grass.  Ah, free again!
