We first visited Wyoming with our brand new travel trailer during our first year of full-time RV travel in the summer of 2007, and we found that Yellowstone National Park was just as awesome as everyone said. There were fabulous and bizarre steaming pools and geysers as well as elk and buffalo sharing the roads.
But it was nearby Grand Teton National Park that really took our breath away. Our minds still reeling after those incredible mountain views, we visited unique Devil’s Tower. As we continued our travels, the Tetons remained on our bucket list, but we didn’t get back there for seven years!
In the summer of 2012, we passed through Wyoming again, discovering a modern-day boomtown in Pinedale, where the natural gas industry was flying high. We also explored the western side (Wyoming side) of magical Flaming Gorge National Park.
During the summer of 2014, we finally returned to Grand Teton National Park in our fifth wheel trailer. It was our first year of living a life of full-time RVing adventures after the end of our sailing cruise of Mexico, and were blown away once again. The Tetons are one of America’s most beautiful national parks, and even after that second lengthy visit, they remain on our bucket list for the future!
