Great American  /\  Road Trip

PART 2: On the Road to Jackson Hole, Wyoming

After spending several days in Salt Lake City, which appeared to be a very dog-friendly city, we continued eastbound on Interstate 80.  The original plan was to travel along I-80 and go through Wyoming and then into Nebraska. We made a last minute change of plans as we came upon the road that  headed north to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Traveling along this  route would eventually take us to Yellowstone National Park and Mt. Rushmore. The plan was to see just how much could be done and which sights could be seen with a dog. As you will see in both this and upcoming newsletters, it was well worth the change of plans. 

On August 25, 2004, my family and I set out on a trip across America. My dog Toby, a black standard poodle, came with us on this venture. Click here to read Part 1.

To the east of Salt Lake City is a mountain range which offers skiing during the winter and pet-friendly hiking the rest of the year. This photo shows Highway 80 heading east over the mountain range. 
Here is Toby taking a short nap in the car before stopping for lunch.
About a half hour east of Salt Lake City, we stopped at the Wild Oats Natural Marketplace in Park City for lunch. It was located just off of I-80. We took turns going inside to the deli to get food, while one of us stayed outside with Toby. There were about a half a dozen tables outside. We picked one and dined there with our dog. It was very enjoyable, except for a little pestering by a few yellow jackets.  Click here for more "Part 2: On the Road to Jackon Hole, Wyoming".
