My first blog post

So this is the first time ive ever done a blog and im not sure what to do. So first of all this is Topher. Just so we know who is penning this sparatic collection of thoughts.

Yesterday was the fourth of july. Independence day. We had come from veadawoo the previous day and had pitched camp outside of alpine wy. About an hour south of Yellowstone. There were an insane number of bugs when we woke up and we quickly abandoned ship in search of someplace less insect inclined. We found refuge at a day use area where we set up a camp hammock Mik had purchased between two trees. To say is was a relaxing day is an understatement. Napping in the shade of a tree, reading “The Night Circus”(a very excellent book so far) and listening to the sounds of a happy dog playing in the Grey river. To end an otherwise lovely freedom day we found a new camping spot of a tributary to the grey river. I think called the little grey. A much less bug filled night was had.

Today Tuesday the fifth we continued our treck northward. Heading through Jackson. A small ski town very much like aspen that i rather liked. And eventually into Grand Teton Natinal Park. The mountians were staggering. Like nothing we have in Colorado. And the meadows between peaks, things i had only seen in movies. We spent a leisurely day driving through the park. (Kenz isnt allowed any where in american national parks so no hiking to be had). Stopped for lunch and headed on out. We headed down a dirt road called Grass Lake road and found freaking awesome camping. Pit toilets bear proof trash cans and even bear boxes all fo-freeee. So thats where we are tonight camped under the teton mountians. Next to i think the snake river. With Yellowstone on tomorrow’s plate.

Ok this last paragraph is for all the wildlife I forgot to mention. In alpine on the 4th we saw a fawn a hummingbird and 2 pika and some really cool birds we have yet to identify. And today just a cute ground squirrel.

Alright untill the next time i write one of these

  1. Your first blog? This reads like a preview of a NY Times bestseller, sweetheart…keep it up! TYou for sharing your heart & emotions and, of course, for loving my daughter well ❤


  2. Fun update Toph! Kenzie looks mighty happy. Enjoy your grand adventure, sounds like you found a utopian spot to camp between the two major national parks – in July – quite a feat!


  3. Awesome pictures guys. Looks like a great start (apart from bugs) to the grand adventure. The mountains look staggeringly beautiful. I have to say you did a rather splendid job though, of one Kenz, the Adventure Dog.

    This is a fantastic journey for you, and thank you for letting me share it with you, although vicariously.
