We end our vacation today, as we leave our final campsite in the forest outside of Durango. We had fun! Jerry says goodbye!

Arches National Park

We just left Arches which was great! Lots of big towering rocks, but not quite as many arches as one would expect from the name!

The Colorado River

Tonight were staying right on the Colorado River, just outside of Arches National Park. It's beautiful!

The Mormon Temple!

We got to see the Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City but we couldn't go in. Dogs can't be Mormons! But here are some pictures anyway!

Mule deer on antelope island

Bison in the dirt

Buffalo toy!

Jerry cannot BELIEVE that there is a real live buffalo toy by the shore and he can't play with him!


Here's Tom with Luna on his back, photographing a bison walking along the shore by our campsite.


Every single place we've been, whether in Colorado, Wyoming, or Utah, has had a beautiful magpie greeting us. Here's today's magpie!

Antelope Island State Park!

We're on an island in the middle of the Great Salt Lake! Isn't that crazy? It's beautiful here!

More pictures!

Seriously, it was awfully beautiful!


Tom took lots of pictures and so did Margo! Here's Tom taking pictures! Like a professional!

Geothermal stuff!

We also saw (and smelled) lots of geothermal activities, whatever that means! Nutty!


We saw so many bison you could not count them!


Yellowstone was three days of driving, walking, and exploring, and lots of fun! In fact, we doggies got a bison toy to play with and Peanut got bison fur stuck to his diaper!


Here is an elk! I think!

Yellowstone animals!

We saw bison, elk, a long tailed weasel, eagles and hawks, and a couple of coyotes! Here's one of the coyotes!

Yellowstone is beautiful! Here we are in the bar at Yellowstone Lodge enjoying a cocktail and blogging about it!

Pee gnome

We like to pee and poop on things. Who doesn't? Here's our favorite thing to pee and poop on. We call it the pee gnome.

Grand Teton National Park

It is lovely here at the park!

In the wilderness

As we moved from Colorado into Utah yesterday, following the route laid out by google maps, we realized that 70 miles of that road were on rough dirt road, with no services or cell coverage or anything for that entire road. It was a very long and dusty day. Then we got to our campsite at flaming gorge national recreation area and found that it was yet more dirt and dust!
