Moab, Utah, oh the beautiful red rocks in Arches National Park. Canyonlands National Park was admired also as we rented a jeep to do a very steep scary drive from the top to the bottom.
The Grand Tetons, such beautiful snow topped mountains.
Yellowstone National Park-we had only been in the park for an hour and saw our first of four Bear. We also saw herds of Elk, many Bison, Wolves, Coyote, Mountain Goats.
The Big Horn Mountains, we enjoyed taking a few of the gravel roads after we parked the camper in Buffalo, Wyoming. We even got to see a glimpse of a moose!!! As we were driving my DH excitingly says 'It's a friggin' Moose'!! I thought he was kidding me! The picture didn't turn out very good. I wanted to see one so badly in Yellowstone and it never happened.
We have seen some awesome sights, but, another high light of the trip for me was to meet, for the first time in person, my bloggy friend Jasmine from Quilt Kisses.
We only had a couple hours but it was wonderful!! Thanks Jasmine for letting us stop. Jasmine is just as sweet in person as on her blog, no surprise I knew she would be, we got to meet her 3 boys too. We had wonderful tour of her home and were greeted with quilts as soon as we stepped in the door. My hubby had fun counting them, but half way through he stopped, that's a lot of quilts, hehe!!
We loved seeing them all up close and personal! Before we had to be on our way she gave us some of her cute handmade greeting cards with frogs and butterflies.
We did have an hour hiccup on the way home yesterday, we blew out a tire on the travel trailer. DH didn't have a problem getting pulled over and stopped. While we were waiting for AAA to come out, DH couldn't resist trying to do it himself and he was able to get the spare on. Another guy did stop and offer his assistance so that was nice.
So much of the time we had no Wifi so I couldn't be online checking out your blogs and all your wonderful projects. And when we did have Wifi I could receive emails but I could never send them out on my laptop-I have never been able to send out no matter where we are when away from home. Does anyone have a suggestion of why and how to fix that? So now you know why I didn't respond to your comments all month and didn't leave you comments on your blog! I have a whole lot of catching up to do. But first tons of laundry and a camper to clean. I also have some fun posts coming up. I might just sneak in a few more vacation pictures here and there also!
I did take my sewing machine with me and several projects which I did work on some of them. We had a couple of 'chill' days to relax, one of them was raining all day so I was glad to have my work with me.
