Day 2572 – Goodies From Our Road Trip!

In an effort to save money during our earlier road trips, we didn’t buy many/any souvenirs. This trip, we decided to splurge a little. I had the idea to get magnets, since they would be useful for a long time. I feel the same way about pens. I think we got some pretty good stuff this trip!

The shirt was WAY more than I’d ever normally spend on a shirt, but it was Jenny Lake and my namesake, so I had to. Bret actually got a hat here too. It’s not pictured because it’s current in California or en route home. 🙂 Anyways, that shirt is now one of my favorites and I will definitely get my money’s worth.

The corn palace pen is also a super fun find. I love that it’s like an ear of corn. The Bear Country pen is fun too, but they both rank high because of the smooth writing. Ahhhh, so important in a pen.

The magnet on the left was a perfect find, I think. It has the Badlands, Rushmore, Devil’s Tower, Mesas, a buffalo AND prairie dogs! lol, it’s a solid magnet too!

The last magnet, on the right, has quite the tale. This was a Jenny Lake purchase and I looked for a good 20 minutes for a good magnet. I finally settled on this and added it to the loot of the trip. While in California, I realized I couldn’t find it. I was pretty disappointed. Even after re-packing for the trip home, I still didn’t find it. As I was unpacking at home, I was growing more and more convinced that it was lost. Each bag was emptied and put away, still nothing. When I had just about given up, I found it. It was the very last item in the very last bag I unpacked. Ahhhh, yes. 🙂 Happy camper, right here.


Day 2544 – Road Trip Part 5 – Yellowstone to Jenny Lake

Our last leg of the journey to California was through Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. I’m so glad we decided to take the slightly longer way to Yellowstone through Montana. Such a beautiful state! And sooooo friendly and trusting. The first gas station we visited let us PUMP FIRST and then pay! WHAT?! We’ve traveled through a LOT of states and we’ve NEVER experienced that.


We actually used maps this trip!


Yellowstone was such a great stop!





Then we stopped to see Old Faithful. I have the sunburn to prove the wait! Old Faithful kept giving us little teases like it was about to go off, but nope! It was really neat to see it!



Next we drove through the Grand Tetons. This was my favorite part of the trip. Such an amazingly beautiful place. Wow.



The place I was most looking forward to seeing was Jenny Lake. See, I was partially named after Jenny Lake. At first, my parents were going to just name me Jenny, but thanks to my mom and my grandmother, they decided I needed a more formal name. Thus, Jennilyn was created. Sadly, I was not the first, but I was at the beginning of a lot of them! I love my name. 🙂




And here I am crossing the Sierra’s, almost to Bret’s family in Cali. 🙂
