It was a long drive from our campground to see the Grand Tetons - but we enjoyed the trip and views along the way - we were very excited to finally be able to see and photograph them.
The day we got to see the Grand Teton National Park in Jackson Hole, Wy. it was cloudy and overcast, misty and sometimes rainy, yet their beauty was still a wonder to see. Unfortunately the photography will be better if we can return on a sunny day on another trip this way.
With no foothills to obstruct your view, the jagged peaks and deep canyons of the Teton Range rise abruptly from the Jackson Hole valley.
Here's a closer look at the Grand Tetons.
On our drive we saw these horse riders dressed for the rain enjoying a trail ride.
There is a park in the center of the little town of Jackson Hole which has 4 entrances and at each entrance there is an Antler Archway like this one.
Every year they send boy scouts out to the pastures in the area to collect deer antlers that the deer rub off in the springtime. And from those dropped antlers these archways and many other things are made from folks who go out to the meadows to collect them.
Here's a close up of the pile of Antlers in the arch - as you can see they seemed to just be piled up together and bleached by sun and weather.
In the little town of Jackson Hole where they had tons of little shops and restaurants - they also had a great Stagecoach ride - unfortunately not enough time to take the ride on this visit.
Springtime in Wyoming means all the tulips are blooming.
Lucy said goodbye to Jackson, Wyoming - a place we need to come back to visit again as there is lots to see in this area and we just didn't have enough time to see all that we wanted to see.
