Last Thursday, way too early in the morning, we left for Wyoming. Dusty and I decided to take a quick trip out of town for his birthday weekend. After 12 hours of driving we made it to the Tetons. It is one of the most gorgeous places on earth.
While we were in Grand Teton National Park we had the most amazing weather, considering it was the end of September. We had sunny skies every day. So sunny, we both got a little pink on our checks on Friday while we canoed around Jackson Lake. The sunshine looked incredible on the fall colors of the trees.
It was a good thing it was Dusty’s birthday weekend. Otherwise, there would have been no way he could have talked me into getting up before sunrise to go take pictures of a mountain. I am glad it was his birthday though, because the pictures turned out amazing. Take a look at the reflection pictures below, and I am sure you will agree.
Later that same day we drove into town to visit Jackson Hole. In the Teton Village we took a tram 10,400 feet up Rendezvous Mountain. I really felt like I was on top of the world, even though Grand Teton is another 3300 feet higher. Next, we went to the town square area and did some serious window shopping, and a little real shopping too!
Sunday, Dusty’s actual birthday and our last full day in Wyoming, we had a most relaxing morning at the Lodge. In the afternoon, we had lunch at the Colter Bay Ranch house then went on the hunt for a Moose. We got really lucky and spotted three near the Oxbow Bend overlook
We ended the day back at the lodge with a glorious sunset. A sunset, only second from the top to one we saw on our honeymoon from the exact same spot. After such a beautiful sight we wanted to linger a little bit longer, however, our stomachs were begging for dinner. So in the spirit of everything Birthday we splurged and had dinner at the Pioneer Grill in the Lodge before heading back to our campsite for the night..
We got up early again Monday morning to make the long drive back to Pullman but it was worth the three full days we got to spend camping in Jackson. And I didn’t get attacked by any bears!
