Good evening from Jackson Hole, Wyoming where I am spending the night. Beautiful country. I am about 5 or 6 miles outside the Grand Teton National Park. I left Wendover, Utah this morning about 6:45 AM with a full tank of gas. Lady Blue really likes this country out here she is generally running at about 45 to 48 Miles Per Gallon. I-80 to Salt Lake City goes for mile after mile through salty desert where there is little to talk about except a straight road for mile after mile. There are a few factories that appear to me mining salt or extracting it out of the lake water. You see hugh mounds of salt and actually you see the conveyor belt as it spills salt out onto one of the piles of salt. Along the lake where there is water you can see salt that has formed along the shore line. On toward Salt Lake city you get a glimpse of the Great Salt Lake.

Moose Out Side Visitor Center
Moose Looking Around
While driving around the park I have seen two Buffalo, three Moose, four deers and an assortment of birds. The moose statues pictured above caused a funny story. An older couple came walking up toward the visitors center and past this large statue. They had 2 very small dogs on lease who suddenly spotted the statue and started barking like mad and kept trying to run toward it and the old folks holding on like mad to drag the dogs away. When I last saw them they were still looking back at the statue and barking like mad. Before I entered the park I got gas and was asking a man at another pump about how far the entrance of the park was, He told me and said I was fortunate to visiting this week because last week he had 2 inch of snow in his back yard. Tomorrow I go on to Yellowstone National Park and I will be contacting you from there. Good night and remember I love you.
If you have tried to call me my phones rings but I can't answer it. I get email OK. Still have to learn how to use it I guess. Grandpa Bill.
