Grand Canyon, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, and Glacier

Grand Canyon, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, and Glacier

Our boondocking location in the Coconino National Forest just outside of Flagstaff.

We did not think the Grand Canyon was going to open during our visit to the area, so we took a 45-minute helicopter tour from the South Rim to the North Rim and back. It was truly spectacular. Here is a a video clip of the moment we actually passed over the South Rim:

It turns out the Grand Canyon opened in time for us to enjoy a full day at the South Rim. Here is a video montage of our photos. We had some breathtaking pictures of the sunset at the end of the video:

We have been spending a lot of time learning to play different instruments for our astronomy presentations. We purchased a slide didgeridoo from Andrea Furlan’s Hard Fiberglass Didgeridoo Company. This slide didgeridoo plays every key from G to G and is a telescopic traveling model. It can easily be taken apart and placed in a traveling bag that comes with the didge. Here is a video of Andrea Furlan playing the regular neck versus the fat neck. We bought both:

From here we head to Grand Canyon’s North Rim, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, and Glacier National Parks. At all of these locations we will be boondocking in the National Forest just outside of these parks.

Finally, we were officially invited back as Volunteers In the Park (VIPs) to serve the public visiting Theodore Roosevelt National Park. We plan to head there for the month of August. We miss our Ranger family and the bison:

  1. Bob and I enjoy hearing about your travels. We are happy you survived Covid. Enjoy Theodore Roosevelt, it’s been one of our favorite parks because of the quiet and close encounters with the wildlife. We were able to sit on a hill and watch a mare give birth in the south unit.
    You remember us from Boomerville, we were traveling in a brown van. We are currently in the process of moving into a 36ft 5th wheel. It’s quite a change, and we will be spending most of the winter at Jojoba Escapee Park in Southern California. If you are in the area in the winter let us know we would love to host you there.

    1. It is good to hear from you! Congratulations on moving up to a bigger RV. We are sure it is quite the change!! Yes, we agree that the wildlife at Theodore Roosevelt is wonderful. If we return to the Southern California area, we will certainly look you up.

    2. Your new rig will feel like a mansion after traveling so swift-of-foot!

      Theodore Roosevelt is a wonderful and unique national park. We hope to perform there for years to come. It really is like coming “home” for us.

      JoJoba is a location we want to check off our bucket list as well. It is close to the places in Southern California that we might be exploring this winter. This is a park I would consider getting on a waiting list for a future spot.

      We are still trying out all the different Escapee venues. We want to try an Escapade in Tucson this year as well.
