Day 11 - Evening - May 24, 2007

Lucy got a well-deserved bath before we left Jackson this morning. We got into Yellowstone around 3:00 PM and made camp at Fishing Bridge RV Park.
There is no cell signal there. I am posting this from down the road from the campground. We hit some snow after getting into the park.

Look how cool your lovely Lucy looks against the trees...as opposed to those white boxes next to her.

Thanks so much for these postings. We hope to leave for Yellowstone and Grand Teton in two weeks. Your commentary is helping us plan our itinerary
and making us very anxious to leave!

Wow. It looks like fun. Do you have any pics of the inside of the trailer or the campground areas? How do you like living in Lucy? Is it nice and cozy? Plenty of space for you? What's it like waking up in new campgrounds? Does it fell odd? Can you hear the birds singing in the morning?

M.W.

I agree with janetb, the organic curves of the Airstream plus the reflectivity of even the newer Airstreams harmonize with the natural scenery rather than juxtapose with it. In other words, an Airstream blends in with nature, not slam up against it with hard angles.

Your photos took us back in time to our ferry across Jenny Lake and climb to the falls. Did you visit Jenny Lake Lodge or have dinner there? We stayed there overnight and it was delightful. Now, well. . .I'd pick our Gypsy over almost any lodge anywhere! Thanks for the memories and continue to enjoy your time on the road. By the way, talk of Can Opener II is exciting to hear ~G

Day 12 - May 25, 2007

Our first full day in Yellowstone was great We did the Canyon Area today. We started at the Mud Volcano where SuEllyn posed for a picture with her new best friend. We saw the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, and caught s photo of a rainbow on the Yellowstone River. The Upper falls were fantastic. The stuffed Moose in the gift shop may be the only one that we see, so I got a photo of him.

We decided that we didn't really like the Fishing Bridge RV Campground in the Park. We're going to break camp in the morning and go to the KOA at the West Enerance to Yellowstone. I'll provide more details tomorrow and let you know about the KOA.

Here's some pictures from today.

Lucy works out perfectly for us. We are very comfortable and cozy in her. We don't feel like we are waking up in a new campground; we feel like we are waking up inour Lucy which is like being home except in another location. That's the great thing about Airstreaming. We have spent over 100 nights in Lucy in the past 12 months, and have not tired of her. Every time we go home, we can't wait to take her out again. We don't usually hear the birds in the morning because Airstreams are amazingly quiet inside unless you some windows open. I'll take some photos of the inside of Lucy over the next few days and post them.

Hi Brian )

Just want to say thank you for sharing. It just reinforces why we bought our TT's.

Take care, and be safe.

I'm enjoying your travelog. The last time we were in Yellowstone the Fishing Bridge campground was very basic. I remember it looked like a parking lot. I'm sure you will enjoy your new location, except for the comute.

Day 13 - May 26, 2007

We were up early this morning breaking camp at Fishing Bridge RV Park. We were not real satisfied with our stay there. There were 3 point hook-ups which worked properly. The sites were just not large enough to do anything outside. There were no tables and if you had your own there is no place to put it. Cooking out is permitted, but the grill can not be left unattended which makes it difficult to eat inside while the food is hot. There is no cable or wifi which is OK, but there is no cell signal which is not OK with us. It's a safety issue for us. So, we decided to move on to the KOA near the west entrance to Yellowstone.

On the way we saw more of the sites of Yellowstone. We visited the West the West Thumb Geyser Basin. When we returned to Lucy and Olivia in the parking lot, we found a note that Mac & Linda Cassell (Mac1 on the Forums) had stopped by, but were unable to wait for us to return.

We continued on to Old Faithful arriving just in time for the big show. We continued through Madison Junction to the West Entrance. We found the the KOA in short order and made camp. This is a very nice campground, We were able to finally cook-out. We have two Airstream immediate neighbors here at the KOA. A 25FB from New York and a 34 footer from California.

I took some inside photos of Lucy this morning (please excuse all the Mooses on the bed). As you can see, she is quite cozy. We've done 34 consecutive nights in Lucy, and did not feel cramped. Some of my other posts on the string show most of the campgraounds we have stayed at on this trip.
