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.
