The Grand Tetons

I passed through gleaming, clean-as-a-whistle Jackson, stopping briefly at the Visitors Center, to inquire about WiFi, so that I could check for messages from a friend.  I was politely directed to the first Visitors Center in the Grand Teton region.

So, on I went, and learned later that I needed to hone both my intuition and my communications skills.  Nonetheless, the scenery en-route is both a tonic for the soul and a challenge- as if the mountains are saying ” Do you think you are a seasoned hiker?  Come play with us, big boy!”

The Tetons are formidable, but are punctuated by the meandering Snake River    SAM_5406      SAM_5408

Little old me continued on the path to insight and enlightenment, though the wind made my t-shirt balloon out a bit.

Grand Teton, though, is not a long park, north to south.  I found myself in the behemoth that is Yellowstone National Park, in very short order.

My Yellowstone visit will be covered in three posts:  The bison herds to Shoshone Lake;

West Thumb and Yellowstone Lake; The Absaroka and Buffalo Bill State Park.

I left happy, but with a strange feeling that something was amiss.

  1. We didn’t get a chance to hike in the Tetons, but they are certainly beautiful. At one stop, I got stupidly close to a bison for which I got a scolding from Hubby. Good photo, though. Yellowstone is one of my favorite National Parks.
