Seeking ShangriLa in the Tetons and Yellowstone

Since our family started roadtripping across our great country, we have traveled nearly 20,000 miles on America’s backroads and interstates. Recently, True West Magazine asked me to write about one of the trop road trips in America, roundtrip from Salt Lake to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Parks.

Enjoy this wonderful trip and when you pack your van, family truckster, mobile home, rv, or motorcycle, remember to stop and enjoy the little moments of your journey, not forgetting to send a postcard home, enjoy home made pie at a diner along some lost highway, and always, always, take the time to stop and enjoy the sun setting into the horizon as the moon and stars illuminate the night.

See you on down the road! And if you take this great highway adventure through Utah, Wyoming, and a slice of Idaho, don’t forget to visit Montana and stop at Bridger State Historic Park in southwestern Wyoming, one of the best little historic stops on the whole trip.
