If you think you might enjoy riding along the Teton Mountain Range (the youngest range of the Rocky Mountains) via Wyoming's newest Scenic Byway (The Star Valley Scenic Byway), or through Yellowstone National Park (the oldest and most popular National Park in the continental United States) from the seat of your Harley, then YOU really don't want to miss the 2014 Wyoming State H.O.G. Rally in ALPINE, WY.
At an elevation of 5,640', Alpine is located at the southern end of the Snake River Canyon where the Snake River enters Palisades Reservoir. The town is also known as Alpine Junction since it marks the point where US Route 89 and US Route 26 turn in opposite directions. The two routes run concurrently through the Snake River Canyon from Jackson, Wyoming. In Alpine, US 89 turns south toward Afton, Wyoming, while US 26 turns north and follows the edge of Palisades Reservoir to Swan Valley, Idaho. Three rivers come together in the vicinity of Alpine: the Snake, the Salt, and the Greys - all three flow into the Palisades Reservoir, with the latter two giving up their waters to the Snake River, making the Grey's River Cove RV an excellent place to set up camp during the rally if you are truly into the outdoors.
Yellowstone National Park, the oldest, "second" largest, and most popular National Park in the continental United States is only 94 miles from Alpine. Few places on earth offer so much scenic and scientific interest in one area. Yellowstone is in the heart of the Rockies, a land of pine-clad mountains and broad, grassy valleys. The countryside is laced with lakes and streams of exquisite beauty.
