Grand Teton

This blog post was supposed to be about our recent trip to the UK…then I was going through my photos and realized I never posted anything about our trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, back in June. So, now we find ourselves here…Grand Teton.

Grand Teton is located wholly in the state of Wyoming and found justttt south of Yellowstone National Park. We stayed in one of the park’s cabins for three nights which gave us time to explore most of the part’s roads and a bit of its backcountry (via hikes).

The focus of the park is the Tetons themselves, a part of the Rockies with very tall peaks but almost no foothills to speak of. The largest is named, not surprisingly, Grand Teton. They are, in short, breathtaking.

Snake River viewpoint

Ansel Adams took a very famous photo from this overlook of the Snake River. I didn’t even try to re-create it, but took my own photo.

Lakeshore

Matt and Lizzie hanging out at the docks on Jenny Lake, close to where we stayed and just at the end of a parking lot with one of the park’s concession areas.

Trip means I take photos of Matt as he takes photos.

One of the most famous non-natural sites of the park: the old barn which was part of a Mormon settlement that didn’t last particularly long due to the very short growing season and very cold winters.

Along the shores of Jenny Lake

Lizzie walked about a third of our hike from Jenny Lake up to Hidden Falls.

Way back from Hidden Falls

And, to end my post, some other beautiful views I can’t place…
