We camped at Bay Bridge Campground in Yellowstone National Park. Our mission was to see wildlife & explore the natural wonders of Yellowstone.
After reading Becky’s post at Interstellar Orchard on the natural bridge hike, we were inspired to hike to the bridge. I’m glad we did the first thing we saw is these mule deer on the trail. They looked at us and we looked at them. I’m sure they thought we were odd looking but they were beautiful to us.
Yellowstone is filled with wildlife & incredible nature wonders.

Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming
While camping at Star Valley Ranch Resort in Thayne, Wyoming Kevin and I explored the Grand Tetons National Park. The Grand Tetons are an incredible site. We drove to several wildlife hotspots but didn’t find wildlife until we drove the River Road.
The river road is a 4-wheel drive required road. The road was clear of debris but bumpy in some spots, so hold on tight. Our jeep wrangler made it just fine. We were able to see the Snake River at the end of the trip. Kevin and I spotted several birds and a pronghorn antelope along the trail.
This is our first Bald Eagle spotting. He was beautiful flying near the River Road.
