Leaving our Virginia homestead in good hands we departed mid-morning on our August adventure to WYO, MT and SD to sightsee and fly fish our way across the landscape. Our first night found us deep in the forest at Obannon Woods State Park, Indiana, a beautiful location south of I-64 and off the Ohio River. What a gem!

Just when we thought the campsites couldn't get any better we found Arrow Rock Campground in Missouri above the Missouri River and next to the Village of Arrow Rock, a National Historic Landmark. What a gem this place is! If you're ever in the area, this place is a must do. It's a small Williamsburg, VA. The campground is small but just perfect! No internet but your dish will pick up a good signal.

Next camp is on the Nebraska Platte River and then on to Rawlins, WYO. I hope all the campsites are a good as the past two.

Camping in the Lodgepole Pines on Yellowstone Lake. Brrrrr!
There's so much Bauxite up here we finally lost count. Very nice to see so many Airstreamers out this month.

The Year Of The Bear

It appears to be "The Year Of The Bear" out west. During our stay in and around Yellowstone NP we've seen seven (7) Grizzlies! What a treat it's been for us and especially my wife, daughter and her family who've never seen Grizzlies. This morning's Wall Street Journal has a good story about a monster black bear that's been a huge problem for Incline Village, NEV. The story goes on to mention the bear problems in CA as well. For we tourists, it's pretty cool to be able to see these bears roaming free.

Thanks for all the information about Yellowstone. We'll be heading there for a few days after the "Hands across the Border" rally in Helena, Montana in September. Can't wait!

Hey there Frank,

We saw the sow with the three cubs at the north end of the Hayden Valley above the bison herd. The place is called "Grizzly Overlook" by the rangers.

We then moved a mile or so north and witnessed the wolf pack sorting out the elk herd stragglers. Our Grandson, when we mentioned it was time to head out for our dinner reservations said, "I'd rather watch wolves than eat!" That was the quote of the trip to date.

Have fun in the park.

We met some of your wonderful fellow countrymen here in the park and from your neighborhood too! Have a great time and safe travels.

We just returned from 6,115 miles of travel across this great land from The Commonwealth of Virginia to the Tetons, Yellowstone and The Beartooth Wilderness! What an adventure and yet we're still speaking and still married. We saw wildlife galore but the best part was seeing so many Grizzly Bears in Yellowstone, seven in all. It's the year of the bear for certain. Flyfishing Rock Creek in The Beartooth, my brother-in-law and I looked up and had a huge bull moose standing between us in the water! Did that big fella ever make that stream look small. What a photo op for a sporting goods calendar and I left the camera in the truck! The quote of the trip was out of our grandson's mouth while watching a wolf pack cut out elk from a herd up on the Yellowstone River. We reminded each other that we would miss a dinner reservation at The Old Faithful Inn when he told us, "I'd rather watch wolves than eat". Indeed. The Bookies and Bows co-operated in The Haylite and on Rock Creek. We had a blast fishing, sightseeing, getting lost and most of all laughing. As for fellow Airstreamers; you guys were out in great numbers and we quite counting and just flashed headlights and waved when passing each other. In camp we conversed with everyone we met in Bauxite and there were lots of you. Airstreaming is indeed alive and well across America and Canada too. We're beginning to talk up next Summer and hope you are as well. Until then.....

We, too, are from Virginia and are beginning a similar trip on September 10th, but only for two weeks. We have a new Airstream and are so excited to start our Big Adventure, we can hardly stand to wait till the 10th! Hope we don't freeze out there...

Golfgal, You'll love it. Take full tanks of propane as you'll most likely use your furnace, especially in the mornings to take the chill out. The coldest temperature we experienced was 37F and it warmed up quickly. Jackets were the order of the day for the early mornings. Our Grandchildren swam in the rivers and enjoyed the warmth of the hot springs flowing into the streams here and there to warm themselves. The crowds had begun to leave the parks while we were there due to schools beginning to start across the land so not all the camps were full to capacity. We found no need for reservations on the trip home which was nice. Much to our pleasure, the Interstate Highway System and bridges are or have been under repair and for the most part the roadways were smooth and free of chug holes. It's about time! We graded the system at about 85% and it was nice to see the long overdue improvements. Have a great time out west. Dick and Annie

Thanks for the report, Zoomin - it's a beautiful country and the only bad thing is that so much of it is so danged far away from here!
