Grand Teton National Park


Arch made of antlers, Jackson Hole, WY

After a not so early start, I drove from Idaho Falls to Jackson Hole, WY and on to Grand Teton National Park.  I stopped at the Visitor Center to see the exhibits and then drove through the park.  Another magnificent park with beautiful mountains, glaciers, lakes and lots of fun outdoor stuff to do.  So many beautiful places to stop and enjoy the views.





Beautiful!  You can see the glacier.
Lunch time.

I had stopped at a Subway earlier in the day so I could have a picnic in the park.  Not a bad spot with that view.  After lunch, I continued my drive through the park with many stops along the way.

I knew Grand Teton NP and Yellowstone NP were close together but I didn't realize the road connected the two parks.  Wonderful drive!  I rolled down my window and played my favorite "park music" (Tony O'Connor if you have ever heard of him).  Peaceful.

Janet and Nick will be camping here in September with Nick's brother and his wife - lucky them!  It will be a beautiful time to visit the park.  Janet is on the look out for a moose.  She has wanted to see one since she was little.

I'm sitting here in tears - why I am so emotional I don't know. I spent the best summer of my life, when I was 15, in Idaho Falls, Idaho, with my best friend at her grandmother's house. We visited Crater of the Moon! I haven't ever been back, although that friend and I are still friends, 41 years later!
