So I am back in good ole' Texas. I had a great trip even though it only lasted a little over 30 days, and 5000 miles. I went through Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado and Oklahoma. I saw the Three Rivers Park (Bad weather in three rivers ), Cimmaron Park, Jemez Falls, and the Vietnam Memorial in New Mexico ( Riding through New Mexico), The Grand Canyon ( Grand Canyon Video), and Flagstaff on route 66 in Arizona, The Grand staircase Escalante, and Posey Lake in Utah (Brook Trout in Posey Lake), Diamond Creek Guard Station in Idaho. In Wyoming I saw the Tetons, Jackson Hole and Yellow Stone Park. Then rode through Denver Colorado and back home.
finally made it!

My friend who enjoyed my left over oatmeal with bananas and occasional granola bars. A lot of people shoot them because they are a nuissance. One guy told me if you shoot one ten minutes later one will drag it away for its dinner.
my food supply which lasted me7 days.
My katadyn water filter purifier. Pumping about one minute would yield a liter of very clean water. It was the best $ 90.00 investment I made.
The creek where I would get my daily 5 litera of water.
right at nightfall I would light the stove.
My temporary room mate, a kangaroo mouse who got relocated to the adjacent field one night. I then stored my food back in the case.
This was a cool table, but I couldn't quite figure out the construction detail of it.
wood burning stove. Notice the cot right next to it. It got really cold at night.

Some of the national parks I visited
view from the hilltop looking at the cabin. This are was known to have moose, elk, grizzlies, and cougars
Diamond creek guard station. No electricity or water. But. It had an amazing wood burning stove and plenty of chopped wood.
Full moon. The wolves sounded like they were right outside the door when they howled.
I didn't know they climbed trees.
Porcupine I chased up the tree. Great climbers!
Yes this is ice on my seat.
right outside of Jackson Hole on the way to Yellowstone.
Snake River near Jackson Hole. It was freezing outside and there were people white water rafting in this river. Burrr.
cows in Jackson Hole Wyoming. They didn't like my red bike, glad there weren't any bulls.
This is a fisher like the one I saw, although I stole this photo off the internet
