Driving through the potato state, Idaho, was worth it for the amazing beauty of Northwest Wyoming, the home of Yellowstone and Grand Teton.

This was our first time finding trouble camping. Getting to Grand Teton late in the day, all campsites within the park were full. Our best hope was dispersed camping within a national forest, another hour away. But we didn’t want to sleep in our overpacked car, so we drove through the park to find this so called dispersed camping.

We totally lucked out. Getting to a bumpy dirt road, we saw three people sitting by a fire and figured we’d ask, getting the quick response, “Right here! Do you like whiskey?”

We had three great nights in one campsite nestled between Yellowstone and Grand Teton, and didn’t have to pay a dime. With fantastic company, extraordinary star gazing, and plenty of whiskey, this was definitely our favorite camping experience. Oh, and we saw moose almost every day on the same road we were sleeping.
