Cycling Wyoming: Part III

The last installment in our series of photo essays from our cycling trip through Wyoming and some of our America’s most pristine National Parks. We had an amazing ride! Enjoy.

We started our day with a breakfast of raisin toast, hot coffee, eggs cooked in orange peals, and of course the oranges guts too.

This is a great way to save yourself from dirtying up dishes and is also a lot of fun.

We made it to the tourist trap that is Old Faithful. Luckily it stood true to its name and after a short wait we moved on to the more interest corners of Yellowstone National Park.

Kim and I were amazed by the vivid blues that we encountered.

At the Prismatic Springs we found ourselves in a time warp.

The steam rising from the Prismatic Springs reflected the vibrant colors. This was our favorite spring in all the park.

This is truly where the buffalo roam. We found this herd on our last ride in Yellowstone.

The sight of the buffalo made me hungry for a trip ending feast. At the end of the ride I decided to ride my bike to Montana and pick up a bottle of wine. An extra 30 miles tacked onto a 40 mile day that was well worth it.

A bottle of wine made just for Mr. And Mrs. Vines.

By the end of this little trip we were nearly out of cash and feeling as adventurous as every. So we borrowed some cardboard and a sharpie from the rangers station and hitched a ride from the border of Montana in Yellowstone National Park.

P.S.
Thank you for the ride Greg! You made our first hitchhiking experience an absolutely wonderful thing. I hope that our paths cross again in the future.

Kim and I hope that all of you have enjoyed the photos and tales from our bike ride through Wyoming. Check out parts I & II if you missed them.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Adventuring

  1. Those pictures are beautiful! I have heard a lot of really great things about WYO, but haven’t been able to get out there yet and adventure… there is always the summer though :). I definitely didn’t know about eggs in orange peels that is interesting to know. Thanks for sharing, I’ll be following in on your adventure!
