Green River KOA, WY

Bison Along Gros Ventre Road, Grand Tetons, WY

Friday, August 3 - Green River KOA, WY - 192.2 in the Park Miles Today, 12,040.2 For the Trip

Rather than bore you with the only photo I took today ( the campground) I'll use one from yesterday.

A change of plans - after taking a second look at the map & talking with John, a fellow camper at Gros Ventre, I decided to take US 189 & 191 to the Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area and cross Colorado on US 40. I stopped for the night at the Green River KOA, site 76. Not the nicest KOA I've been in since it is basically a gravel field with hookups and enough wind to rock the trailer even while still hooked to the RAV4 & the stabilizer jacks lowered. Still, it has showers, which will be nice after two days without them, and with the hookups, I got a chance to drain the tanks.

I'm not sure which side of the gorge I'm going to drive down tomorrow - WY 530 looks to be closer to the gorge than US 191, but in the morning it will be photographing into the sun. After talking with the campground staff, I'll probably drive down the west side on WY 530 & hope for the best.

For those observant of the campground photos, you may notice that in yesterday's photo the white tire cover on the RAV4's spare is missing. It shredded while driving through the Tetons. It wasn't all that inexpensive, and I would have expected to have lasted longer that 12,000 miles - maybe I'll look for a metal cover...

Dinner will be a salad & tuna fish sandwiches - trying to cook in this wind would be a waste of time & I want to use up the rest of the onion & sweet pepper I used to make the hash the other day.

Until Tomorrow!
