I went on vacation for 2 weeks. I rode my Harley to see my family. I'll spare you the details of my family visits but I also did a lot of sight seeing along the way. During my trip I visited the following National Parks:
Rocky Mountain National Park.
EDIT: I forgot to count the Badlands when I started this thread. I don't know how to edit the name of the tread but it really doesn't matter. In actuality I visited 6 national parks.
I left my motel and headed north. I followed the Snake River.
Then I went up the Teton Pass highway just because my Butler Motorcycle map rated it so high.
Next I entered the Grand Teton National Park. The entry fee was $30. I bought an annual entrance fee for $70. I could use this to enter any National Park up to a year from now. My annual fee paid for itself on this trip alone. It would have cost $150 to pay for each park separately that I went to on this one trip. That would have almost been twice as much.
The above picture is of the Grand Teton, the largest mountain in the picture. To the left are the South Teton and the Middle Teton. The Teton mountains were named by French trappers. Grand Teton is French and literally means the grand tit. I honestly don't see the resemblance. To tell you the truth I think it's been a while since these Frenchmen have been with a woman.
From the Grand Teton National Park I went directly into Yellowstone National Park.
Here's Old Faithful
This next picture is of the Old Faithful Inn.
This was Labor Day Weekend, not a good time to visit Yellowstone. The traffic was terrible and Yellowstone is a HUGE park. It covers a large part of northwestern Wyoming. Driving across Yellowstone at 35 miles an hour is like driving across New Jersey at that speed. I was planning on staying in Yellowstone for another day but changed my plans and headed for the northeastern park entrance.
There were lots of Bison (don't call them buffalo. They get very sensitive if you don't use the politically correct term).
