The Tetons

The second day of our trip was a long one, spent almost entirely within Grand Teton National Park. What an amazing place to visit with scenic vistas throughout the entire Park.

We decided to take a one way shuttle across Jenny Lake where we hiked up Cascade Creek, past Hidden Falls to Inspiration Point. Instead of venturing further into Cascade Canyon we turned around and hiked back around Jenny Lake. The view over Jenny Lake from Inspiration Point was awesome, but what we really impressed was looking back toward the Cathedral Group. Being a flatlander I guess I’m just always blown away by truly big mountains. 

The rest of our trek through the Tetons was more of an auto tour, stopping at anything that caught our fancy along the way.

We got back into Jackson with enough time to stop into the Snake River Brewery for apps and drinks before heading out on a moose hunt at dusk. Kudos to the Park Ranger at Colter Bay for suggesting Moose-Wilson Rd. at 7:30pm because he was spot on as we saw our first two moose of the trip.
