Today we went to explore the Tetons. We took a road through the woods and saw a bear and a moose. It was amazing!
We went to Jenny Lake but we couldn’t get a canoe because the water is still too cold so we went on a boat trip. I made a new friend on the boat and she gave me some of her Grizzly bear biscuit. The boat was cool and I liked it when we went fast.
Then we went to Jackson and had a drink in the Cowboy cafe. We had a look around and went in some of the shops. In the middle there are 4 big arches made from real antlers. Mummy bought me some flip-flops because I’ve been pestering for some for ages and they are really nice.
We had a Chinese for dinner and I used chopsticks. I ate all of Mummy’s prawns (they call them shrimp here) and lots of Daddy’s beef. At the end we all got a fortune cookie.
On the way home we went to look for more animals and we found a bald eagle.
Today when we stopped I realised I had my shoes on the wrong feet and my trousers on back to front. Mummy said that was typical Martha and took a picture.
We went to the Lower Falls again but the road is open now so I saw it from the other side. We walked down a very big, steep hill and got to stand right next to the waterfall. It was amazing.
We went to look at more Geysers at Mammoth and we saw a black bear on the way. It was a long way away but we could see it on mummy’s camera. There were some Bison in the road and it was a traffic jam.
The geysers at Mammoth were cool. It was like being on another planet.
We saw some Elk lying in a field.
We walked down another big hill and Mummy and Eliza saw some bear hair. Daddy and I saw a ground squirrel. Daddy said it was a chipmunk but I said it was a ground squirrel. Daddy didn’t believe me until I showed him my book. I was right!
We stopped again to look at the view and saw a man with a spotting scope. We asked what he was looking at and there was some pronghorn on the cliff and they had just had a baby.
We stopped at the north entrance. It’s called the Roosevelt entrance. We stopped at the 45th parallel. This is half way between the equator and the North Pole. It was by a cool river with lots of rapids.
There were lots of nice views today because we did the upper ring road where there are less people. It was a long day and Mummy said you see lots of wildlife as it gets to the evening. Then we saw 2 coyote more Elk and a grizzly bear with 2 cubs. It was amazing and then best bit so far. I was so excited!
