Grand Teton National Park

Yesterday we drove past the Grand Tetons on our way to Yellowstone. They were so phenomenal. So today we decided to go to Grand Teton National Park. We weren't disappointed. The mountains are even more spectacular up close.

We drove up to both Jenny Lake and Lake Jackson. There is a gorgeous Lodge at Lake Jackson that I am sure would be fun to stay at. We had lunch there and it was very good. The lake is the largest in the park and you can go sailing, fishing and boating on the lake. They also have houseboats there you can rent.

The pictures here are of Jenny Lake. It is amazing how crystal clear the water is. They have a path that you can walk on to go down by the water. It was just an amazing view. The beauty is so breath taking. We are going back tomorrow to hike some of the trails. And Monday we are going on a raft ride down the Snake River, weather permitting. I'll be sure to post pictures.

Then we stopped in town to take in some of the sites. The pictures posted are of the main part of downtown Jackson. The antler arch is the entrance to the town park. There is one on all 4 corners of the park.

There is an actual stagecoach that goes through the town. Beau growled at the horses when they went by. I guess he's never seen a horse before so he wasn't sure what to think. Most of the shops have their doors open so he kept trying to go into all the shops. I never knew he was a shopper. I even found a bead shop but they didn't have anything new or different to offer.
