The Devils Tower, Wyoming

The Natives believe that the Devils Tower was formed when two local boys were being hunted by a giant bear who’s claws were as long as teepee poles. They prayed to their creator for help and this huge rock rose beneath them. The bear tried to reach them from every angle scratching the sides. An…

Canyons and wild horses in Wyoming 

Not far east from Yellowstone and spread between Wyoming and Montana is a deep canyon with ochre walls and a crocodile coloured lake flowing through it. Around the canyon rims are wild horses and big horn sheep and along the roads are empty trails are tumble weeds. We couldn’t quite believe how quiet the park…

The Grizzlies outside Yellowstone

As soon as we left Yellowstone we figured that would be it for Grizzly encounters for the rest of our trip, which was a sad thought. However, as we searched for a place to camp we were greeted with a sign that got us extremely excited: ‘GRIZZLY BEAR AREA, specials rules apply, camp only in…

Snowstorms and wildlife in Yellowstone

We woke up to rain which was a bit odd after so many days of sunshine, but it was fine as today was going to be a wildlife day. We planned to drive along the Lamar Valley all day searching out Yellowstone’s famous animals. The valley is said to be prime habitat for predators which…

Canyons and Bison in Yellowstone

We woke before the sun and opened our blinds to see smoke surrounding us. The wildfire in west Yellowstone has been a pretty big one and there was obviously a change of wind as the air was thick with smoke and the sunrise looked like a smoggy Asian one. It did clear soon after arriving…

The colours of Yellowstone

It’s a place we’ve wanted to visit for years, we’ve seen so many documentaries and dreamed of the day we could see the sights in person. The ranger at…

A photographers dream in The Grand Tetons

The Tetons treated us to a day full of its best views. The sun touched the peaks first thing and stained them pink once again like a picture out of a brochure. We saw our first herd of bison in the distance and a male Pronghorn Antelope in the field before stopping at the Mormon…

Hiking in the stunning Grand Tetons

We find it really hard waking up early, especially when it’s freezing cold in our van, but whenever we’re in a National Park we dust off the alarm clock and make the most of each day. So at 6.45am my alarm began making the irritating noise and I snoozed a few times. I lifted up…

A day of boating, camping and sunsets in The Grand Tetons

The Grand Teton mountain range has to be one of the most recognisable in the world and we were super excited to explore the area. Before entering the national park we stopped at Jackson Hole. Everyone we’ve met has said we have to go to Jackson, the name has echoed around us since arriving in…
