Martha and I departed Jackson at 8am and up and over the 8,000 foot Grand Teton Pass. We decided to take the scenic (long mileage) route via Arco and the Craters of the Moon National Park was recommended by our Boisean class mate, Guy Burnham. Just pass the town of Arco, we encountered lightening, hail, and heavy rain from an approaching cold front with 52F temperatures and wind chill about 42F.
It was bare knuckles as we rode 30 miles with ice on the two lane highway–fearful that we might go down.
We soon overtook the front and enjoyed blue skies and 75F. We arrived at Carolyn Crosby’s home—wow! and she hosted local class mates: Jill Kramer, Janice Detlor (and husband Jack Scripps), Guy and Jinks Burnham, and Martha and me. Carolyn prepared a delicious dinner and Guy brought two home-made apple pies—so delicious!
Later we visited Jan’s historic and beautiful home. That will be shown in the next video (#36).
