This was an epic year of travel for me – the best ever. I was very fortunate to be able to go somewhere special each month.
I visited National Parks in the US as well as a few new places in my home country. I had a completely unique experience as a volunteer citizen scientist in Kenya. And my feet touched the soil of South America for the first time. To top it all off, I was totally spoiled on a one of a kind barge cruise on the Burgundy Canal in France. I don’t think any year in travel can get much better.
As I was planning a Yellowstone and Grand Teton road trip focusing primarily on photography, I decided to do a one way Salt Lake to Yellowstone itinerary, which I am sharing here.
I’ve been fortunate to visit Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Park twice in the last few years. On my first visit I flew into and out of Jackson and did one big loop through the two parks. This time, I got a better flight deal into Salt Lake city so I opted for a one way route ending in Bozeman, Montana.
Skiing Park City without the crowds is easy if you go during the Sundance Film Festival.
Though we travel quite a bit, my husband’s favorite trip each year is his annual winter ski trip out west. Each year he tries to go somewhere new or some place where he has not been for a long time. This year, he chose skiing Park City during the Sundance Film Festival.
About 20 minutes west of Park City, Utah is the Jordanelle State Park. The park sits on the shores of a reservoir formed from the damming of the Provo River. While there were no open facilities in winter, the roads in the park were plowed and made for a pleasant drive to take in the surrounding scenery.
