Grand Tetons

The long anticipated wait to go the the Tetons was finally over, but oh how I did not want it to end! So much to see, yet so little time. In the end it was so worth it and I would do it again in a heartbeat come rain or shine.

This time around we drove by Bear Lake. I had never been there so I was pretty excited to at least "see" it. :) On our way through we stopped and got some of these.....

....ooOOoo they were delish! Would take these over strawberries anyday!

We arrived at our campsite pretty late Friday night so we were not able to see anything. The next couple of days, this is what we were able to see. Love these mountains!

I think since we got there we were pretty much on the hunt for any sort of wildlife possible. We drove by Oxbow Bend several times with no luck. We drove up signal moutnain several times and only saw one deer. I really wanted to see a bear!

The next day some of us rode the boat across Jackson Lake....

..... and hiked to see Hidden Falls. I don't think I will ever be disappointed with this hike and seeing this waterfall.

These are just some cute pictures of Holly and Abbi at camp and at Jackson Lake Lodge.

I think next time we go, we might take this.....

but if we take the plane, we won't see a big ol' moose like this guy . Seriously....he was HUGE!!

Highlights of the trip:

-seeing my brother and niece and nephews at bear lake. Totally random..

-hearing the elk cool!


-listening to the coyotes howl..kind of scarey, yet really cool.

-shopping in Jackson

-spending time with great friends and family.

-seeing a moose! :)

I can't wait until next time. I hope it won't be as long as it has this trip.
