The Tetons are indeed Grand

We had a whirlwind day through Yellowstone NP (bison! antelope! pika!) before hitting Grand Tetons NP, where we were lucky enough to find a campsite in the park on Lake Jackson. We had dinner by the lake and today have been exploring the park. At the top of a Signal Mountain in addition to glorious views, there is a cell tower so we are taking advantage of it to post and make a few phone calls.

Jenny Lake beautifully frames the largest peaks in the Teton range, and the Snake River winds through the flats providing water for bison and elk. It is stunning. The clouds are gathering now over the mountains and we are hoping we might be able to view a thunderstorm from afar here atop Signal Mountain.As always we’ll upload more photos to Flickr when we can, but for now I’ll post a few here.

  1. I’ve been there twice; on my way out to Berkeley, and then again on our way back. It’s quite spectacular, huh? We had a lot fun doing Western touristy stuff in Jackson Hole, too!
