One of the worst parts of the trip was that my family and I had to wake up at 3:00 AM to catch the plane in Manchester.

We stayed there for 1 night. While we were there we went to the lake and rented jet skis. It was a lot of fun.

They even had a "Ripleys Believe It or Not" museum. They also had a very nice ski area. We even went to a rodeo. They had barrel racing, bull riding, and calf roping. We stayed there for 3-4 days and it was awesome. While there my mom, my dad, my sister, and I all went white water rafting. It was one of the most exciting things I have ever done. I got so wet and the waves and rapids were gigantic!!! We all had a great time.

After all of the excitement in Jackson Hole we traveled to Yellowstone National Park. We drove up the western side of the park towards Montana. While we were there we visited Old Faithful, Yellowstone Lake, Mammoth Springs, and then on to Gardiner, Montana where my sisters roommate from school lives. We had a great time while we were there. We rode horses up in the mountains and it was amazing. It was a great experience. We also went down into the town where we went shopping. One day we went to a place called Chico Hot Springs, which was a resort spa. From Gardiner we started heading southwest to Idaho Falls, Idaho where we stayed for one night.
