My husband and I had the privilege of visiting good friends in Jackson Hole this past weekend. We stayed in their unbelievably beautiful home with views of the Tetons from every window. Pictures are worth a thousand words so take a look at a few of the house pics below. We hiked each day. The first hike was to String and Leigh Lake on the way to Bear Paw Lake, the second day we walked along the Snake River in the Solitude area, and the third day we hiked to Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point from the Jenny Lake trailhead. I also had the luck to meet Mary Scott, Superintendent of Grand Teton National Park, who met her husband, Roger while both lived in Santa Fe (Mary worked for the National Park Service and Roger was with the BLM). We had a fabulous dinner at the Snake River Grill, the best quesadillas at Dornans for lunch one day, and reveled in the view from the dining room of the Jackson Lake Lodge. We saw more elk than I could count, moose, beavers, bison, deer and antelope, all in a short 3-day trip. If you have never had the good fortune to visit Grand Teton National Park, book a trip there soon. It is one of the most gorgeous and special places in the entire world. Thank goodness that John D. Rockefeller, Jr. had the foresight to buy most of the land that he donated to the National Park Service to create Grand Teton National Park. Grand indeed.
