We were there in ‘16 with Ray. Where the Popo Agee comes out of the rocks there are enormous trout in the river. There is a berry grows there by the river. Looks like a blueberry and tastes good but the stem has thorns. They were where the river disappears into the mountain, along the trail.

Up thru the Tetons and Yellowstone, which I’m told are not as busy as usual but nonetheless seem mobbed to me, and campgrounds are busy if not completely full.

FCFS at Grant Village were not opened this year, online reservations only, showers are closed but laundromat is open.

We have been fortunate to snag a campsite each night, due in large part I suspect because I prefer to leave early and stop mid day.

Wildflowers are in abundance, lots of bear caution signs tho we have seen none, have seen elk.

Unable to get pictures to load.

Maggie

We spent the last couple of nights in a Shoshone NF campground right on the Shoshone River, and are now settled into a full service campground in Cody for the next few days.

Dry camping has been fun, but I am ready for a few days of civilization.

Doing laundry in Yellowstone the other morning, this female elk was making her way across the parking lot...she looked at me like “What???“, and just kept on going.

Lots of beware of bear signs, but we saw none, and that is okay.

These signs in the bathrooms at Yellowstone....I have to think, why is this even necessary?

I read this rather unusual but very good book this past week, and have placed it onto my “Read Again” shelf...

In Asia, China specifically, most toilets are the squat type. Affectionately called squatty potties. Just as we Americans aren't sure what to do when first encountering a squatty pottie, some Chinese visitors not used to sitting while doing their business will stand on the seat. It often results in a broken toilet seat.

One would think by the time those from other countries made their way to Yellowstone, they would be familiar with American toilets.

It must be necessary to have signage, tho, or there wouldn’t be.

Like the graphic sign I once saw on a public bathroom at a gas station somewhere, with the wording “Don’t make us wonder what’s going on in there”.

I would struggle using a squat toilet, I suspect.

One of the benefits of an RV, that you always have a potty with you.

Enlightened!

I had wondered if that was the answer but I had to think about it for a bit.

Having been in several national parks in Canada some years ago we ended up being just ahead of these very large tour buses filled with Asian tourists. In the ladies room I remember looking under the stall door one time and there were no feet but the door was locked. This explains it.

Looks a lot better than the pit toilet in Turkey years ago.

I think that would end up with me landing on the floor, wet feet or not being able to complete the activity.

Thanks for the smile of the day

I have noticed and really appreciate that private vendors don’t seem to be trying to scalp tourists in this popular and busy area.

Double washers at Yellowstone were $2.75, and the campground we’re in now the owner looked for discounts to give us, classifying the Interstate as a van because the rates are lower.

Very friendly and helpful at the front desk, and then as we were getting ready to back into our site a gentleman hopped up from a nearby site where he was eating with his family to help me move a picnic table and guide me in.

Nice.

He then noticed my HistoriCorps bumper sticker, asked about it and the organization, so I of course had to get him a brochure and business card.

He and his wife have just retired.

Purposeful travel...it’s a good thing.

Maggie

Hi Maggie,

I am Mike. I am new to the group and yours is the first and only thread that I have read. I felt compelled to post my first reply to let you know that your story is touching and I am very happy that you are sharing your journey. It is meaningful to me and appreciated.

I was really hoping that you would post a picture of the rye bread, so thanks again! Looks fantastic! Best wishes.

Mike

Aww, thank you, Mike, and welcome.

I am always so touched when others tell me they glean something positive from my story and this thread, and that my sharing means something to others.


I don’t know if I still have a photo of the Dutch oven rye bread, but I’ll look.

It is the most delicious and full-flavored rye bread I have ever eaten, so try it if you’re a rye lover.

Maggie

I am speechless.


I am also scrubbed, top to toe, shampooed twice, and shorn of unwanted hair.

I have thoroughly and completely enjoyed the beauty of South Dakota and Wyoming, and know that traveling in this Interstate is luxury glamping...nothing “roughing it” about it...HOWEVER, being without hot water and therefore a proper shower most of this trip has been a hardship.

I’ve remained clean enough, but boy, did that shower feel good.

Yep, it’s a first world problem, and I am spoiled.

BUT, I did it, practiced using the solar panel and therefore was able to stay longer without hookups than I would have been in the past.

I have to say, too, that South Dakota and Wyoming have become two of my favorite states.

I am catching up on the news.

Maggie

Hi Maggie,
Another benefit of boondocking, sometimes no news.

So true, Jim.

It’s like multiple, slow motion, never ending train wrecks.

Maggie, be sure to take in the Wild Bill Cody museum while you are there! It’s one of my favorite museums anywhere. I agree with you about SD and WY being great places!!

Hi Debbie!

Doug and I did that museum, and most everything in Cody, a number of years back.

He liked all the guns, of course.

Pretty fascinating, tho I especially liked the Old Trail Town...

I went west in covered wagon in a previous life, you know.
