Our Time In The Tetons

Hiking along the Taggart-Bradley Lake Trail in GTNP

The Milky Way stretched out like a rainbow across the cloudless night. Laying on our backs on the Signal Mountain boat dock we saw so many stars that the constellations became meaningless. The stars also reflected back up from the water like yellow pin pricks. This was my favorite moment from the eight nights we spent camping in Grand Teton National Park.

That and other moments made up for a bit of car drama. The worst of it was when we realized the back hatch was not locking. Corey ended up walking behind the car while I inched our way back to the campsite (a very long quarter mile).

Boat across Jenny Lake. Every other row in boat was empty which created longer lines than usual. All employees and most hikers wore masks when on boat.

Our favorite pizzeria located at Leeks Marina was closed for the season. So too where many indoor lodging options. All campgrounds at GTNP were open and filled at earlier than usual times while we were there.

Hanging at the rocky beach just below our campsite. We especially enjoyed our new inflatable paddleboard (Thanks Mom and Dad!)

Henna a few moments before jumping into Bradley Lake. So cold!

After eight nights camping, we find ourselves at a boutique hotel in Red Lodge Montana. The Pollard Hotel (built in 1893 and originally named something else) is a fine hotel. We also saw more wildlife (a wolf, bear, elk and hundreds, maybe thousands of bison) on the drive through Yellowstone than we have seen all trip. We also survived and even enjoyed the Bear Tooth Highway. Have more stories to share, but a hot shower and a comfy bed are calling. Hope you enjoy all the pictures.
