Thursday, 15 September 2005

Location: USA

We have had a wonderful time in Yellowstone National Park. We wanted to stay longer but the weather wa getting scary. SNOW!!!!! We did not want to get stuck in there for the winter. Saw many beautiful sites including Old Faithful but the whole park was just an awesome place.
Yesterday we traveled down to Salt Lake City. We stopped in Fossil Butte and walked a trail up a mountain to view a fossil dig. It was very interesting and the hike was invigorating.
Further on we came upon Park City Utah. It is a huge ski area and a very busy place. Big city stuff.
We started out of Park City and went down and down and down for about 10 miles. Couldn't believe how far down we went to get to Salt Lake City. But we are now in full service campground and can get caught up on our stuff. Talk to you later Jeanne and Bill

September 6,
Today was our last day in Keystone. We went to the Gold Mine and panned for gold. No luck. Some people got a few little bitty nuggets of gold. We had fun anyway. Then we went on a train ride from Keystone to Hill City. It went through the mountains and along the river. It was very relazing. On the way home we went to The Glass Blowers. Beautiful vases and bowls but very expensive. I bought a little weather barometer made of glass.

Tomorrow we will be heading for Yellowstone. National Park for 7 days. We like staying in one place for a few days. We get to see many more things and do not feel rushed.
On our way to Yellowstone we stopped in Devil's Tower which is a humongous pillar of rock 840 ft. high. It was in the middle of nowhere.
We stayed in Ten Sleep Wyoming for the night and then traveled on to Yellowstone .
We sppotted a Wal-Mart so we stopped and stocked up on food. We arrived in Yellowstone National Park after a hary ride over the mountains. I was very good and didn't holler too much. We have been touring around Yellowstone -soo much to see and today we are in the Grand Tetons National Paark. Beautiful for spacious skys. They are just magnificent!!!!!!! So long for now Jeanne and Bill

Hi Everyone,
I am very far behind on my webpage because we have been seeing so many sights along the way. We traveled across the state of South Dakota in one day. It was a very long trip and we saw mostly corn fields and soybeans and sunflowers and hay.
Fields and fields , as far as the eye could see. We stopped at different locations along the way, one being Wall Drug. It once was a small drugstore but has now grown to be a huge complex similar to South of the Border but not as chintsy. We had homemade icecream {delicious} and ambled through all the stores. We also stopped in different overlooks along the way. One rest area was locaated at the site where Louis and Clark camped along the Missouri River. It had memorabilia of their expedition down the Missouri River.
We stopped for lunch and the gas station across the street was advertizing gas for 2.95 and when we came out of the restaurant the price had changed to 3.09. Bar humbug!!!
We stopped in Mitchel, South Dakota to see the Corn Palace. It is a building With murals on the front depcting the harvesting of corn and the farmers . It is all made out of different color corn. Most amazing.
We arrived in Keystone and we can see Mt. Rushmore from our camp site. We set out for Mt. Rushmore to view the Presidents. Awesome!!! We then went to Rushmore Cave and went 420 stairs into the caves which had stalagmites and stalagtites. It was 58 degrees in the cave and 97 degrees outside.
The weather has been beautiful. It is in the 90's during the day but very dry and about 6p.m. it cools right off to the high 50's at nite. No need for the air conditioning. Today we went to Custer State Park. We saw buffalo, deer, elk, mule s, and antelope roaming about.Lots of scenic overlooks and very, windey and steep, narrow roads. Scaaarrrrey!!!!! Tonight we are going to the Lighting of Mt. Rushmre. They say it is very impressive. Bye for now Jeanne and Bill

Location: USA

This is the fourth time I have typed this and I am getting very frustrated.
We went to the ARch and went to the top in a small cable car. We viewed the city from the top and took many picures. A beautiful site. We watched a movie of how the Arch was built. Amazing!!!
Today we went to Union Station the hub for trains during the Depressiona dn the second World War. It is now a mall but the history of the train station is well preserved.
We went for a tour boat ride on the Mississippi River and saw barges being laded with goods to be shipped. Also the Arch from the water. St. Louis is a beautiful city with lots of history and things to see.
Tomorrow we are headed for Cedar Rapids , Ohio to visit with Bill's niece Robyn and her husband Mike.
Till the next internet site Bill and Jeanne

Location: Atlantic City, USA

We traveled on from Williamsburg to Dumfies, Virginia and stayed for three days at a very nice campground. We went swimming several times and went to Washington,D.C. We took a tour bus which was the best thing we could have done. It was a van and held 10 people. The bus driver was from Mass. and she was a very good narrator. She took us to allthe major sites and She dropped us off and went spent time at each place. If we had driven in we never would have made it.
Yesterday we traveled up t Atlantic City and went gambling. It was awesome. All the gliz and glitter. Didn't get to walk on the boardwaalk but saw it. It was pouring buckets out. Slept like a log last nite. We were out late because we couldn't find the road to the campground on the way back. Off to Janet and Earl's today. It's going to be a long ride.Talk to you again. Bill and Jeanne
