Teton reflection on Jackson Lake


We had a great day at the Buffalo Bill Museum on the 21st. Spent the better part of the day there, a must see museum with over 300,000 sq. ft of history. We then finished our day with a trip in the east entrance to Yellowstone. (not as bad as we remembered in 2003, but this time we had snow!!) We made it as far as the Fishing Bridge Campground for the night (had to wait for a new loop of sites to open before we could set-up, but as you can see Bob took advantage of the sun once we did.) The 22nd found us checking out the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Upper and Lower Falls.. Lots of water due to snow melt, and some roads still closed with snow but the north rim opened that day. Beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife....Bison, wolf, elk, grizzly bear, dall sheep, ducks and geese. Then on to see all the geysers on our way to Old Faithful, still going off on a regular basis.(John and Jean, Chris said to say Hi and that your friends will be in in June). We then traveled down to the south entrance on our way to the Grand Tetons, stayed the night in Colter Bay SP. The 23rd was another beautiful sunny day as we had more gorgeous scenery of the Tetons and wildlife. Crossed over the Teton Pass ( not something we would have done with the Cypress1 ) and into Idaho, out of the mountains and into the plains. We then came across Craters of the Moon National Park (Lava rock everywhere as we drove thru). This country has such a vast array of landscape to see. Spent the night in Boise, ID. (still no internet).
