Day 9: Wednesday, August 16th, 2017 What is the plan? Grand Tetons?
We begin the day in Gardner, Montana, just outside of Mammoth Springs in Yellowstone. However, this is the part of the trip, that as parents we are EXHAUSTED, we can't make any more decisions, we no longer have tricks up our sleeves, we hope the kids have some brilliant ideas. While in the back of our minds, we know that we are awful close to the Grand Tetons, so we "should" try and check it out. However, we are realists and know that we may have tapped all of Dad's energy and resources and may need to find him a nice hotel with high speed wi-fi and a pool of course.
However, the Grand Teton's are worth the effort, after all it is a road trip that is highlighted as wonderful driving tour in the tour/travel books. Hmmm....I don't really have any lodging lined up, so we can do whatever we want. This will certainly push us out of our comfort zone, no reservations, no wifi and no phone. I think we can do it!
