Day 15 concluded-

While eating lunch near the river we noticed a deer on the other side-








After a relaxing lunch, and spending 45 minutes looking around the side of the river, it's time to head out...








...Riding back up the gravel drive to the asphalt.









A look back-








As we get closer to Dubois, we are seeing some variation in the landscape.








Off to the side-









We're here!








Photo in shop window-









Dubois has a population of less than 1,000. When we went shopping in town, we had a surprise!!! We met decman from XL Forum. Did not even know he lived here. He thought he recognized Mary from our Ride Reports, then he saw the Trike with the DK 3 Plate.

We chatted for a while, and he gave us some tips for our ride tomorrow. Good People!

We have not ridden a lot in the last two days, but we're both sort of tired, probably from so much riding the previous 5 days! Wish we could have spent more time with decman!

We headed off to the Super-8, our home away from home.




Tomorrow we head over to the Grand Tetons, and then up to the West entrance of Yellowstone!

Day 16-

Leaving out of Dubois...








Right off the bat, it is clear, this is gonna be a GREAT DAY of Riding and Scenic views.









Oh yeah! Fun road, and great views, and we're barely started!









We have reservations at a motel in West Yellowstone tonight, but first we are climbing Togwotee Pass, then on to the Grand Teton National Park, then across Teton Pass, then into Idaho to travel north up to W. Yellowstone.

Climbing Togwotee Pass, this is a welcome road and view after the last couple of days.








Thoroughly enjoying the ride!









Almost to the summit, and it is getting a bit chilly...










...which makes sense as we cross the Continental Divide at 9658 feet.









We pull over to enjoy the views & so Mary can put on her electric jacket.








Heading down the other side now...









...a beautiful winding road, and those are the Grand Teton mountains in the distance!





more in next post.

Day 16 continued-

Getting closer to Grand Teton National Park!









Yeah!









That sounds like a good idea.









​​​​​​​ooops, forgot to clean my windshield this morning!









This range is so big...








...Mary took dozens of photos...









...these are just a few of them.









There are no roads into these mountains...you can hike up into them, but that is not in the cards for us. lol

A close up from the bike.








We did ride to Lake Jenny, which is the closest road to them. Parked and took a little hike to the lake...








...hope we don't need to make use of these 5 options!





Will post more on Day 16 as time allows.
