Geysers, Wolves, and Grizzlies...oh my. Our slogan was "Anything that doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Except for bears. Bears kill you."
Rising above a scene rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton Range stands as a monument to the people who fought to protect it. These are mountains of the imagination. Mountains that led to the creation of Grand Teton National Park where you can explore over two hundred miles of trails, float the Snake River or enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.
Yesterday we drove up the scenic byway past all these little towns toward Jackson Hole. We followed our Mapquest printouts and meandered through Evanston, Afton, Star Valley, and ... Before arriving in Jackson Hole. We found our hotel Parkway Inn and walked to the town center, took pictures, and visited gift shops. We found some darling shirts and jammies for the grand kids. Emily found a nice shirt and tried on various Patagonia jackets. After a while we asked about good places to eat and selected Sidewinder (burger joint). We went back to our hotel and went swimming and hot tubbing. Oooohhh that felt good. Then we went back to the room and watched the BYU/Boise football game. Hot cider and brownies are always available. We hit the hay and are now heading down to breakfast. Nice place.
