Traffic-Hams

Driving-in-summer drives me happy until doesn’t need to be driven the Yellowstone National Park route.

Two years ago I wrote this: “The Yellowstone National park hosts unnumbered loads of visitors warping the roads and the trails like divisions of tanks on parade onto a crystalline meadow.” Then, 2017 . . . And meh. Again.

Mourning each last beats of joy at Grand Teton, and after having chosen to target the north via the unavoidable south west passage through the Yellowstone, that morning I early took the road, expecting to shun the rush hours and the common traffic jams of the glorious landscape.

Soon, despite the so called early time frame, a jam ran down the tar. A weird one.

Dozens of bison-families were keeping their right on the road, toward the south; on the opposite direction and heading to the north, I was able to cross the herd without delay; yet, behind the confident wild families, hundreds of vehicles carrying crabbed characters were stuck, glued, pinned at the asphalt — for hours!

Er . . . Did I tell you that I scorn human-droves early in the morning? Darn; Jams in wilderness, or crass nonsenses.

Teton Range fields offers fun off-road playgrounds for mudding, like nothing else! . . . Questions?

Trip To Teton

Grizzly! And a wild one! And just before I arrived at the Moran-Togwotee overlook, Wyoming.

After four mellow days of riding Tweety (a yellow Hummer H2) — towing Minnie Winnie (a 26 foot orange RV-travel-trailer) — from East toward West, from North Carolina through Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Iowa, and Nebraska, discovering the Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, with a welcome by the most iconic wild fellow in North America, made me feel blessed again — more than ever.

The 2017 edition of US VISTAS’ Wanders and Wanderings could not get a more exciting kick start.
