Short hike to the post office
The other day Linda had to pick up her mail at the post office. The nearest one is in Kelly, WY, less the 2 miles from our campsites. So off we went on a trail that led down to the river and through the woods(HA! Just kidding!)
The trail did lead us next to the river for a short distance.
This was the beautiful scenery of the mountains to our left.
Then we made it to the small town of Kelly, WY where they had a post office a small sandwich store and a small school with schoolyard and many private residences.
Inside the store they had this sign. I bet you won’t find this sign in many stores. By the way we did not run into any bison nearby.
This is probably the smallest post office I have ever seen.
This is a nice view of the Teton Mountains as we were walking back along the road.
Drove into Jackson
Later that day I drove in to Jackson with John to fill my external tank with propane. It looks like traffic has died down a bit as vacations are starting to wind down since kids have to be back in school shortly. It is still rather busy, but just not as bad.
While there I also picked up some bear spray. On the return trip we saw this big guy crossing the road. They don’t seem to have any fear of cars or people. I guess if I were that big I wouldn’t care either.
The weather is very nice here and we haven’t had any rain for a few days now. The campgrounds have been almost full on a few days, but seem to be thinning out a bit now.
I had forgotten about that little post office. We got something delivered there, too. Say Hi to the LD crowd for us!
Dear Adventuresome Traveler:
Your blogs become more interesting as time goes on! Enjoy!! 🙂
We love to camp at Coulter Bay, They have a Village there and the best chili at the restaurant bar.
I love the Tetons. Wyoming is a beautiful state. Enjoy your time there.
I need a Chica fix!
It must be nice to be able to hike into town for your mail. That sign about the bison made me laugh! Cool photo of the, is it a bison?, crossing the road.
And I agree with Rick – NOT ENOUGH ABOUT CHICA. We want more Chica photos. 🙂
I can’t believe they would build such a small post office – it’s so tiny. I guess it’s big enough for them, though, and it looks like there’s a chimney – maybe a fireplace for the cold weather. Could be very cozy. 🙂
