Day 22: July 14, 2000
Cody, WY to Ogden, UT
(441 miles)

I'm sure everyone is getting tired of these trip reports, because I am, so this will be short.

Today we were on the road by 8:00 AM, and rode west from Cody, and back into Yellowstone. The scenery and the roads were great. We visited Wild Bill Cody Dam and in the park we saw our first bear. It was a full-grown Grizzly, and he was grazing on something right next to the road. He was very impressive.

We passed through the Park, and then went through Grand Teton National Park. We rode into Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where we had lunch. I took Carla to the airport, and she caught her plane home to San Diego, where she arrived safely this evening.

I then took US 89 south through Wyoming, Idaho, and Utah. This is a great road. I had taken it once before, and I forgot how great it is. It goes over Salt River Pass, Geneva Summit, Logan Summit, and then descends through Logan Canyon. I continued south, and found a Motel 6 in Ogden Utah, where I am finally able to connect to the Internet again.

Time for some sleep, I have a big day of riding planned in Utah tomorrow. Good Night.
