Hello everyone! This is Suzanne Conley, Linda’s wife, adventure partner, and taller (and louder) half. I’m writing a guest blog post today to share our most recent vacation with you!
For Linda’s birthday, we packed up and went out west for a camping trip in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. I’m not much of a tent camper, but the scenery was so beautiful, it made it worth it. …except for the night that a bison was hanging out 15 feet from our campsite. That was a little stressful. (Fun fact: more people get killed in Yellowstone from bison attacks than from bear attacks. Who knew?)
Gorgeous mountain views, tons of wildlife, only a few mornings of waking up to a frosty tent in the cold, and a beautiful cabin in the Tetons to escape the snow…I’d call it a good trip! I hope you enjoy our photos!

Below you can see our first camping spot at Madison campground in Yellowstone. In the morning I woke up super early in hopes of getting to the next campground because they are not all reservable and I wanted a spot at Slough Creek which only has 16 spots. I was trying to get Suzanne motivated but when she heard the wolf or coyote howl that got her moving! Ready to go lol. The bottom is one of the geysers. They are pretty amazing.
One of my favorite geysers that we literally just stumbled across.
Finally got that coveted camping spot at Slough Creek we came home one day to a bison about 15 feet from our tent.
SO many stars
It was time to leave Yellowstone and go to The Grand Tetons, on the way out I saw a bunch of cars and cameras with some very expensive lenses and knew something was up. Turned out a grizzly was chowing on some roots and half the park was watching. Pretty neat- the bears name is Blondie. You can look her up…The Grand Tetons were stunning we took a raft trip on the Snake River and made some friends. They are form the west and got real chilly on the rainy ride.
Suz ready for the trip and a young guy who looks like my dad use to. Oh and a moose and the way Suzanne looks at me when she is happy.
I am going to let the Grand Tetons speak for themselves.
