Picking up mail

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.

  1. 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. 🙂
