Twelve hours of glorious colors, weather and adventure. Tuesday I was invited by a dear friend to take a road trip through Teton Nation Park. Fall! Tetons! Oh what an adventure. But this adventure came with one stipulation, I HAD TO DRIVE! I could do this, I could steer through the maze of tourists, lookouts and get us where we plotted to go as long as I had a navigator.
We left a 8:15 am. The weather was cool, crisp and clear. We drop over the pass past Swan Valley, Beautiful. I love this time of year all the fall colors, pocket of color amongst all the forest green.
THEN it was time for the 10% down grade climb down into the Jackson Valley. The summit top was in sight and I knew that the car breaks would be getting their work out this morning. We crested the top of the summit started our descent to the valley floor. Got past Glory Bowl (which is where in the winter, avalanches are always set up) and could almost see the Grand sticking through the heavy clouds. On to a couple more mountain turn and Jackson should be in sight. NOT! Jackson this morning is totally fogged in. Remind me of looking out over an ocean fog. Had I come all the hour and half drive not to be able to see anything? I really hope that by the time we tour Teton Village the fog will have lifted so that I can take the photos that I have gotten planned. Jenny Lake, Hidden Falls, Black Bears, Log Cabins, just to name a few that were on the agenda today.
