Welcome

Welcome to Dornbush.net

Retirement is great.  We bought a travel trailer and are exploring National Parks.  (Actually, we bought one and sold it and bought a second one better suited to us.  It happens...)  And I have time to do some woodworking projects and things around the house.

Map of our trip

While we were on our latest trip, we had APRS running on my ham radio and it captured our route.  Here is a picture of the route thanks to Google Earth.

On our trip, we logged just over 3000 miles pulling the trailer. So far, we have logged just over 12,000 miles with the trailer since we got it last May.

Grand Teton National Park - Day 3

This was kind of a lazy day for us.  In the morning, we went to the Jenny Lake Overlook and hiked down the trail along the lakeshore to the Jenny Lake campground and back.  On this trail, you get a great view of the lake and the mountains that rise right up from it.  In fact, you are so close to them that you can't see the top of Grand Teton as it is hidden behind the closer peak on the way up to Grand Teton's summit.

Grand Teton National Park - Day 2

Grand Teton National Park is a great place to see fabulous mountain peaks and lakes.  It doesn't have the range of short hikes we like to take these days but has lots of longer hikes, so it is not as great a place for a longer time.  We are here for two more days so we decided to take a leisurely time going around the driving tour.

Yellowstone National Park - 3

Today was geyser day at Yellowstone for us.  We toured the rest of the geyser basins around Old Faithful, the Upper and Lower Geyser Basins. We started at the Black Sand Basin which is about a mile from Old Faithful. I did my best to name these geysers and other hot features accurately, but probably got some of them wrong.  But as Jennifer said, we saw things that bubble, stink, and squirt.  And that just about sums up hot pools, fumaroles, and geysers.

Glacier National Park - East side - 3

Today, we drove to Many Glacier, a valley in the northeast park of Glacier National Park.  I assume it was named because at one time, there were many glaciers there.  Today, many have disappeared although there are still some to see and to hike to. We didn't hike to any glaciers today because of the distance.  We did hike to Redrock Falls, which were much closer and a hike we felt we could do.  And we did.  The trail takes you through a forest and past two lakes.
