So Boulder was my official final stop on my August 2016 Drive-about. It was a good place to end, ending in the city where the idea for this trip was born.
I decided to make my final National Park experience on this Drive-about to be Rocky Mountain National Park. I was in the park from August 20th to the 21st, so only one night.
Steamboat Springs was my first stop after I returned to Colorado after being in Wyoming. I was in Steamboat Springs from August 19th to the 20th, 2016.
Sinks Canyon State Park was my final stop in Wyoming. I didn’t really do a whole lot here, as the weather that evening wasn’t the best and was threatening to rain the entire time.
I was in Thermopolis, Wyoming from August 17th to the 18th, 2016. Thermopolis is fairly well known for its natural mineral pools and hot springs, and claims to have the world’s largest mineral hot springs.
My adventures and pictures of Yellowstone National Park, broken up into four different parts, as there was just so much to see I can’t put all the pictures into one gallery.
All in all, Grand Teton National Park was a very unique and cool place. The mountains are just so in-your-face, it’s super great.
I stopped at Pinedale, Wyoming for a night while I was on my way up to Jackson. It was a very cool little town, I did a cool hike there to a lake.
Flaming Gorge was one of the few stops (besides Dinosaur National Monument) that I made in Utah. I wasn’t there for long.
Dinosaur National Monument was a place that I had always wanted to go to, but I never knew much about it until I was there. It still managed to exceed my expectations.
Colorado National Monument was a really cool place. It is part of the Colorado Plateau, which also includes Arches National Park in Utah
I only stayed one night around Gateway, Colorado, and it reminded me a lot of Moab, Utah. I was rained on just about all night, but the views were stunning.
