Grand Teton and Jackson Wyoming

Horseback riding in the morning, not only the kids enjoyed this, the parents did as well.
We drove up early morning to Pacific creek and continued on a gravel road. The RV was shaking so violently that we had to reduce our speed to max 10 mph (and the gravel road was more than 5 miles long !) We got saddled up by the wranglers and a very friendly young lady (a summer job student) took us on this horseback riding trip. Both Arne's and mums horse backkicked mine and Nele's horse. For the rest the ride was easy.


On the way down to Jackson we stopped at some scenic views and having a short walk to a river which mounds into the Snake River. The rangers just had diverted this river by moving pebbles. The consequence was that in the now drying area a lot of fish was trapped and getting sundried. We saved quite some fish and contributed to the growth of wildlife!


We decided to take this day in a relaxed way and already arrived at our RV campground just after noon. The kids loved it, and jumped into the pool.


After this refreshing dive we did some shopping (some presents for the family at home) in Jackson. It is a bit strange to see this modern small city being disguised as an old western town. You can see the red "Playmobil" stagecoach riding in the street next to big pick ups.


We ended up in a restaurant which was actually a protected building (read: a real western building and not just the facade).


On the way back to the campground we took the bus (which is free here when you drive inside the townborders) and again we got to talk to a couple from Russia, 2 girls from Nebraska and the busdriver, our trip was too short to get all our stories told and hear about their stories.
