In today’s video, we head to the Snake River with Black Dog Rafting Company to do a scenic morning float. It was a gorgeous morning and we got to see over a dozen Bald Eagles along the river’s edge. Amazing! We also take a drive through Teton National Park which unfortunately is smokey and hard to see and finally take the boat shuttle across Jenny Lake to hike to Hidden Falls.
In today’s video, we leave Jefferson County Lake once again and head to Victor Idaho to meet family. While there we are staying at the Mike Harris Campground which is nice and quiet but has the most unique water pump system we’ve seen. We also spend the day at the Jackson Hole Resort and ride the Tram, Gondola, and Chairlift to get some awesome views!
In today’s video, we head back to Jefferson County Lake for a quick 2-night stay. We’ve decided Jefferson County Lake is our favorite pay-for campground we’ve encountered so far, so why not stay while we get the truck worked on in Idaho Falls. Unfortunately, that turns out to be a disaster but we did get to meet up with Nolan & Joanne, some awesome viewers for fabulous Mexican food so that made the day so much better!
In today’s video, we head back into West Yellowstone one last time from our boondocking spot in Island Park. This time we brave the fog to hike in Biscuit Basin to Mystic Falls which is an awesome waterfall! We then continued the loop to a nice Overlook, especially nice since the fog had cleared. Next stop…the Grand Tetons!
In today’s video, Steve decides to great creative with the field we are boondocking in and his macro lens. He explains his process and shows a bunch of really cool macro shots he made. Afterwards, we head into West Yellowstone to do some browsing/shopping. We find a great souvenir and head to date night at a local restaurant.
In today’s video, we take you through the Eclipse with us in the 97% zone near West Yellowstone. Besides it getting dark and quite chilly we didn’t get too much on video, unlike some of the vloggers in the zone of totality, but it was still fun to experience with girls in our Airstream. The next day we head back into Yellowstone to check out Old Faithful. We hang out with some bison and watch Old Faithful from a couple of different vantage points.
In today’s video, we decide to skip the crowds in Yellowstone and instead head down to Mesa Falls which is about 30 minutes south of where we are boondocking. Unfortunately, there were crowds there too due to a bike race and being closer to the zone of totality for the eclipse the next day. The falls were both definitely worth the trip though, especially the Upper Falls! We take the opportunity to fill up our water jugs too, or course.
After we return from our adventures Steve chats about our solar setup and everything we run/charge on a typical day. We’re loving these cooler days of full sun here in Idaho, we never have to worry about our batteries getting too low. Steve also talks a little bit more about equalizing our tanks when we are boondocking.
In today’s video, we are heading back into Yellowstone National Park early on a Saturday morning to try and avoid the crowds. We check out a few smaller things including the Firehole Canyon Scenic Drive, Firehole Falls, and the Grand Prismatic Spring along the boardwalk. We then went back to the Fairy Falls trailhead and walked to the overlook we were too tired to check out last time. Finally, we do another scenic drive and check out the White Dome Geyser which tests our patience. We love this area!
We find a great spot for garbage, recycling, and water in the park. We’ll be stopping there every time we pass it, that’s for sure! Steve finishes the video talking about our internet troubles at our boondocking spot. Luckily, the cell speed sped up after that weird day, so we’re back at a super fast speed. Not bad for free camping!
In today’s video, we head to Yellowstone National Park for our first day of exploring. We decide to do a 7-mile hike to Fairy Falls and the Imperial Geyser from the Fairy Falls parking area south of the Grand Prismatic Spring. It was a lovely day for a hike and since this was a bit of a longer one we didn’t see very many people which was awesome considering the crowds we say elsewhere. The Fairy Falls was absolutely gorgeous and then only a mile further was the Imperial Geyser which was unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. While at Imperial Geyser we were recognized for the first time by Tina and had a wonderful chat. An amazing day of hiking, scenery, and meeting awesome people!
In today’s video, we leave Jefferson County Lake Campground. Our first stop is a dump station at the Visitor Center in Ashton Idaho on our way to our boondocking spot. Then we continue heading north and east to a boondocking area in Island Park Idaho. After our boondocking troubles recently we decided to take the bikes down the roads to find the best spot for us and it worked out great. We found a great mostly level spot with plenty of solar. We can’t wait to spend the next couple of weeks here and explore Yellowstone National Park!
