Whirlwind continues

Up and at 'em at 6 am this Monday morning.  We will be leaving our cozy bungalow no later than 8 am today. Josh and I arrived back from The Salmon River at 3 pm Saturday.  Our time here since has been a blur of unpacking, cleaning & drying gear, repacking and provisioning for another foray to some of our nearby attractions.

Today we will head north and detour over to Upper Mesa Falls.  Then it's on to Yellowstone via Firehole Falls and the geyser basins to Old Faithful.  We figure we will probably spend the entire day there before driving to camp at West Thumb.  We will probably detour up to Lake Village and back as well.

Tuesday we'll be going down to Grand Teton National Park for a couple of nights.  We plan to return here on Thursday, probably about mid-afternoon.  Our schedule is pretty open for the Teton visit with Jenny Lake and the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserver the only "must do" stops.

We're traveling in the pop-top.  All of Josh's camping gear is lashed down to a cargo rack on the back of the truck. We three will ride in the front.

It was pretty hot here yesterday--95 degrees.  Susun has the place looking its immaculate summer self now and she's rightfully due for a road trip.  We will be taking the netbook and hope to post up a trip photo or two during this excursion.  We should have cell service everywhere so the Twitter has been moved back to the top for this adventure.

Have a great day and Many Cheers, jp
