Hmmmm – This lot was hard to fit into my case .  Fortunately, this trip involves getting around via hire car rather than public transport, so I can take my large case. For future trips, I will maybe need to pack lighter and wash more!

I have some new things in my case this trip:

My travel camera – really looking forward to trying that out.

My fleeced hooded buff – hopefully, this will keep my aching neck warm on cold mornings …

Our head torches – bought because I read in the guidebook that a must do thing was a canoe trip at sunrise to the middle of a lake in Grand Teton where you should see moose around the lake as the sun comes up. Sounds magical – whether we will ever do it I don’t know – but we won’t be stopped by lack of a head torch anyway!
