I made it to the Tetons. More on that later…
First an update on Yellowstone. Had more fun than I had expected. Last time I rode through it was underwhelming. Must’ve been pissy after a long ride…nah, that never happens.
That night at the KOA was cold as hell. It was a real challenge to keep my extremities from freezing. I woke up to see frost all over my bike.
Probably shouldn’t have left the helmet out. Moist foam, like wearing a dish washing sponge on your head….all day. It never dries.
Doing laundry the that night was like a flashback to my 20s. It gave me hives thinking about being poor.
At this point I’m hungry. Yelp told me to go here. Totally worth it, but busy as hell. Pancakes, bacon and eggs took an hour. Breakfast became lunch.
It was super relaxing until the first wave of Chinese tourist swarmed me. One guy hopped on my bike as his buddy took a picture. Said I saved him $5. A toothless older guy in the group said should’ve charged him $10. I put my shoes on and bailed.
I then came across a big group of bison and the typical Yellowstone traffic jam. That’s where people see a squirrel cross the street and every jumps out of their cars and takes pictures. So I jumped off my bike and took pictures….
Grand Tetons, needless to say, are gorgeous.
