Gary, Lynn, Lynda and I just returned from a 8 day Caravan trip. We started out by flying into Rapid City, South Dakota. We spend two days there visiting Mt. Rushmore & Crazy Horse. then we visited the Indian Museum of North America. Then we return through the Black Hills.

Day 3: We entered Wyoming and headed West across the high plains into Sheridan Wyoming. After lunch we entered Montana "The big Sky Country" We visited Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument in the crow nation. We then continued to Billings Montana nestled between the Yellowstone River and the Red Rimrocks. Lewis and Clark camped near here in 1806.

Day 4: We journey the wide-open spaces of Montana en route to Cody, Wyoming. We visited the world famous Buffalo Bill Historical Center, The Indian Museum, and the Whitney Gallery of Westernarts In the afternoon we crossed the Continental Divide and enter into Yellowstone Park. We stayed two days in the Old Faithful Inn. We watch old Faithful geyser go off It goes off every 90 minutes.
5: We had a full day doing acomplete circle of Yellowstone Park.

Day 6: we entered the Grand Teton national Park were we ate lunch while we floated down the snake river for 1 1/2 hours. Fun Fun! Next we stop at pristine Jenny Lake. Then on to Jackson Hole. We even went in to the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar for a drink No not the hard stuff a Dr. pepper for me. Know one wanted to wait on use so we took a few pictures and went on our way. Later that night our tour guide surprised us with a diner and entertainment at the Bar J Chuckwagon it was so much fun the food was great and the entertainment was wonderful. If your every in Jackson you really need to check this out.
Day 7:We drove through the Bridger-Teton National Forest then into Idaho and a cross the route of the original "Oregon Trail." then had lunch in Bear Lake and then continued through Logan Canyon To Salt Lake City. We visit the Temple Grounds. Then onto the Hilton for the most wonderful Salmon dinner and sleep.

Day 8: We have breakfast at the Hotel, and then we get a shuttle to Diamond parking to get are Cars and return home. We really have a good time when ever we go with Lynn and Lynda. As I've said before how blessed Gary and I are to have them as friends.

you are always having fun fair. I have always wanted to visit Mnt. Rushmore especially on the 4th of July, too bad you missed that.
Avorie and Adilyn miss you alot, but it sure is nice not fighting with them too get out of bed early and they can sleep in every day. We will have to stop by for a visit.
