Â Just to wrap up, we left Teton Springs and drove to St. George where we stayed a couple of days.Â It was really hot!Â We arrived home on Aug. 15.Â It was a great trip with new sights, some really good dinners out (even one in St. George), and some new knowledge gained about what works and what doesn’t.
What was best?Â I think the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National ParkÂ was exceptional.Â The Butchart GardensÂ were spectacular and a place one could visit all different times of the year.Â The Connor Butler restaurant wasÂ a great experience -Â great chef, great restaurant, great time.Â Learning about the bridges in Oregon was quite interesting.Â And, of course, taking this trip with John was the best of all.
So if I had to do it over again?Â I’d book king-size beds only.Â A working internet is a must.Â I’d pack half or less of the clothes I brought.Â Having a kitchen is a good thing.Â Booking places with owners who manage their own propertiesÂ is less of a good thing.Â And I wouldn’t book places that boast of having a jacuzzi bathtub in the living area.Â It’s stupid and takes up the space that a couch should go in (Best Western, Gardiner, MT.)Â I’d always bring my own sheets to exchange for scratchy or pill-y ones.Â I think I’d leave the chairs and table home next time because we were always able to find a picnic table.
So we are home for a while but we did book a vacation for March today!
