Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park

After I got my Junior Ranger badge from the Grand Tetons, we headed back up to Yellowstone National Park! Mike decided to bike from Flagg Staff in Grand Teton to Grant Village in Yellowstone. We were originally going to meet at Old Faithful which is a little further than Grant Village. However, I drove there and was beyond overwhelmed with the sheer number of people and madness. It felt like I was at Disney World. So, I drove back a…

Dog Blog: Did They Leave Me?

Dog Blog: Did They Leave Me?

Dear Diary, I had a great couple weeks with Mom and Dad! We went to so many parks that I’ve taken poos in. I haven’t been able to always get out of the car because the bears are scared of me, but I’ve gotten lots of air-sniffing-out-the-window time! Mom also bought a chuck-it, and it’s my job to go get the ball. I’m really good at it and I take my job super seriously. We visited a friend named Luke…

Grand Teton National Park

Grand Teton National Park

We entered Grand Teton National Park from the North entrance which meant we had to do a quick drive through Yellowstone first.  Woof…. both these parks are poppin with thousands of people.

When we arrived, we stopped at Flagg Ranch first for information. From there, Mike biked to Colter…

Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Theodore Roosevelt National Park

I didn’t know much about this park and wasn’t expecting much because…. it’s North Dakota. Boy, did it surprise me. For hours, during our drive there, it was the typical mostly flat plains, grassland, farms…. your basic midwest scenery. I was definitely not getting excited for Theodore Roosevelt National Park. But then BAM! We drove over an itty bitty midwest hill and it hits you. It’s a rugged landscape, full of badlands type rocks under all these open hills. It’s…

Wind Cave National Park

Wind Cave National Park

After Badlands, we stopped by Mt Rushmore for a quick $10 selfie and then on our way to Wind Cave. Not really worth it to us… especially since someone ran into us and ruined Mike’s bike rack.  Either way, we got to Wind Cave early afternoon, and drove to the visitor center. Being only a hop away from Badlands, it’s not surprising that the landscape was prettyyyy similar.  Once we got to the visitor center, we grabbed my Jr Ranger…
