BOLT had a wonderful week, one that makes me appreciate RV life even more. We’ve stayed at a variety of places and had nothing but positive experiences. I am reminded that, despite the insanity of our current political situation, all the tragedies and injustice, America is beautiful.
From Walmart parking lots (great spots for RV overnight stays) to private RV parks with pools and casinos we’ve encountered friendly, helpful people and great natural beauty. RVing is a great, relatively inexpensive, way to see the country and meet interesting people.
This week we traveled five states (Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana), visited 2 fabulous national parks (Grand Teton and Yellowstone), went to a wonderful museum (the California Trail Interpretive Center) and stayed in 2 national forests (Targhee and Gallatin). We hope you enjoy these pictures of our week. We love getting your comments and please, ask any questions you may have.
Sometimes Walmarts are the best overnight option. This one in Layton, Utah was great!
We both really enjoyed the interactive exhibits at the California Trail Interpretive Center in Elko, Nevada.
The Grand Tetons were magnificent and we got to see bison.
There is nothing like waking up in forest and seeing these for neighbors. This is Beaver Creek Campground, Gallitin National Forest, Montana.
A highlight of our week was our visit to Yellowstone National Park. It has great boardwalk walking paths, views of the Snake River, lots of crowds and of course “Old Faithful”.
We find the national forest campgrounds to be wonderful: very beautiful and inexpensive too. This one in the Targhee National Forest on the Idaho – Wyoming border was only $12 a night. This compares really favorably to the private RV park prices. The one we stayed at in Elko, Nevada was $30 a night for really just a big parking lot but it did have a pool and great staff.
So that was our week, we hope yours was fabulous as well!
