The trip to Grand Teton National Park was amazing all in its own right. We packed up the tent and headed out, about a month ago today. Right near the Wyoming border in Colorado we were greeted with some spectacularly moody mountains. I really wish I’d stopped to take more photos along the way but I didn’t realize how much the terrain would change as we went. I should have gotten a shot as an example of all the different geological features…so much variety and like nothing I’d ever seen before. It felt like I was on another planet. I always thought Colorado was awesome, and it is, but that was because I’d not yet been to Wyoming. What a state!!
Our home for the night was a Super 8 in Dubois, quite a quirky little town that felt like we’d stepped back in time. We ate at the highly rated Cowboy Cafe and ordered the blackberry pie. Places like these all have these amazing pie cooks at one of the restaurants in town, and it is like you MUST try the pie, it is all anyone in town will tell you. The next morning we awoke before the sun to try and get to the national park early enough for some good light. Totally worked out, but that is for the next post!
