Riding Destination: Jackson Hole, WY

Husband and I took off on a 9 day, 3,500 mile motorcycle road trip with our first stop in Cheyenne and on to Jackson Hole the following day. (We had rode to Yellowstone a few years ago but never made it down to see the Teton Mountains). The moment was right and I ended up having a few too many Corona's while sitting in the saddle at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar during our one night's stay in Jackson. We rode through the Teton Grand National Park and stayed 4 nights at Togwotee Mountain Lodge. They provided us with a guided trail ride, chuckwagon dinners and a float trip where we saw bald eagles, elk, beavers and a moose! We had a view of the Tetons from our cabin window -- it was awesome.

Knitting Confession: I deliberately did not take ANYTHING knitting related on this trip but halfway through the week (like a true junkie) I suffered from a severe knitting withdraw and we had to make an emergency trip to Knit on Pearl to get me what husband called "a project" so he could have some napping peace. An easy sock pattern, dpn's and fingering yarn helped this city girl to slow down, relax and enjoy the cool mountain air.
