After Black Canyon NP, we drove to Grand Junction, CO, and headed north on Hwy 139 and Hwy 191 to Grand Teton National Park. We drove through mountain passes and pastures. It was a beautiful drive, but very very long. We spent a night in Boulder, Wy., and headed to the Park the next morning. It was a perfect day with blue skies and white clouds. Beautiful scenery and the bike paths started soon after leaving a town called Jackson.We stopped at the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center. The park ranger recommended the Taggart Lake hike. There were bus loads of people at the visitor center, but the trail was not too crowded.
I think I took this at Taggart Lake.
You can see the peaks from many different view points on Teton Park Road.
We camped at Colter Bay campground for the night. The path next to our camp site lead us to a shore of Jackson lake with another view of the peaks.
On the opposite site of the peaks, you can see the smoke from the forest fire. I read somewhere fire is an important part of the forest ecosystem.
Next morning we when we were packing up, a black bear walked right by our RV right after Bob came in after doing something outside. Too bad, I forgot to take a picture!
