BTOW17: Stopping for a Bio-Break

Stopping at a gas station/convenience store is a must at least once during the drive.  This time, we stopped at a Sinclair Gas Station, which are numerous out in this part of the country.  

The author of this blog posting remembers them on the East Coast, but they seem to have left this part of the country in the late 60's.

BTOW17 - Lander Cut-Off Pull Off

For some reason, each trip we seem to pull off here.  It is the author's third BTOW to Grand Teton/Yellowstone and his third visit.  Maybe it is simply to stretch our legs.  Maybe it is to look at the scenery.

BTOW17: The First Morning

After successfully making it to the KOA in Montpelier, Idaho and a semi-decent night's rest, we were up and getting ready to travel to Grand Teton.  

Here are some photos of the first morning!

Nothing starts the morning right than a fresh pot of coffee, using Mr. B's peculator. 

Of course, breakfast is an important way to start the day!

BTOW17: Arrival in Salt Lake City

Our flight to Salt Lake City was uneventful, the the crew of Southwest Airlines was fantastic to us!  They plied us with snacks (Peanuts, Pretzels, Lorna Doone's, etc.), which kept us quite happy until we landed, to pick up our vehicles.

BTOW17 - Leaving on a Jet Plane

Well, as you can imagine, Troop 466 is back from our Big Trip Out West (BTOW17).  Now we begin to share our photos of our adventure.  Over the next few weeks, you can view a new set of photos, each week, documenting our adventure. 

Here we are at the airport, before passing through security, to catch our flight.  We are a good looking group, I must say!
