Fairing East: A Motorcycle Trip Across America

this can only end well…

Day 5 Yellowstone NP to Jackson

We awoke to find tentatively clear skies and temps in the 40s. After packing up and leaving a few thank-you beers for the owner of the tent, we warmed up the bikes and headed into town for breakfast. After a hearty meal of chili omelets, we made our way into the park.

The roads in Yellowstone are perfect for cycling. Sweeping curves, great views, and plenty of opportunities to hop off and go for a hike. Be forewarned: if someone sees any type of wildlife, they tend to just STOP in the middle of the road. Just as dangerous as the moose and bison are the other cars.

We made the obligatory stop at old faithful for the morning eruption, and hiked around to nearby geysers and hot springs. That day we rode the entire southern loop, and headed down to Jackson.

At some point during the day we realized Kyles phone had died-good thing Jackson has an AT&T store! After availing ourselves of the local brews, we met up with our old ADK friend and were able to do laundry, take showers, and sleep under a roof. Many thanks to the Chambers-Sell family for the fantastic Jackson hospitality! Side note: Reed has an incredible adventure coming up in Canada-please visit this link to vote for his trip to be supported by Outside Magazine!

Based on our hosts recommendation, we planned on riding back through the park and through the Lamar valley and beartooth pass.
