Miscellaneous

In November 2005, Tracy, Jessica Vaughan and I went to Craters of the Moon National

Monument in Idaho, and then we drove through the Grand Teton National park in Wyoming.

Craters of the Moon was pretty cool.  It's a small park, but it has some really strange

geography.  The entire landscape is just old volcanic activity.  There are some cool lava tubes

that you can explore, but mostly the landscape is just interesting for all of its lava features.  It

was really cold and windy out there, so we pretty much had the park to ourselves.  Then after

leaving there, we decided that we had exhausted the south-eastern Idaho possibilities since it

was REALLY cold, and we headed over to the Tetons.  It was snowing pretty good in the

mountains, and it was nice to get into our first real snow of the season.  In fact, it snowed the

whole time we were in Wyoming, so Jessica still didn't get to see the Tetons.  She's convinced

that there are no mountains anywhere near Jackson Hole.  But we did see a lot of wildlife in

the Tetons.  And I at least have some pictures of some really playful and curious river otters.

We thought we even saw a wolf, but we did some cross-country hiking, and I found the tracks.

Take a look at the pictures and see what you think...after seeing the tracks, I think it was a

coyote.  If it was, it was the biggest coyote I've ever seen, but these tracks just look too small

to be a wolf, I think.  Plus, it was by itself, which is supposed to be pretty rare for a wolf.  But

we had a nice road trip.  We also made a side trip to the Bonneville Salt Flats.  The Flats were

flooded out, but that made for some really cool pictures.
