The Amazing Wyoming.....
                                      Yellowstone  &  Tetons

 

 

What an Amazing Trek through Wyoming!

We started planning our Trek through Wyoming and Utah in January, and finally June had arrived, and it was time to travel!

Tampa to Wyoming

We had planned 2 full weeks doing a self-drive from Jackson Hole, north to the Grand Tetons, north to Yellowstone, then back to the Tetons and Jackson. For the second part of our journey, we drove from Jackson through Idaho and south into Utah. We visited most of the National Parks in southern Utah, and then flew home from Salt Lake City.

This was the route we planned to take from the day we arrived in Jackson Hole on Day 1 until our last day of vacation in Salt Lake City on Day 15 and all the stops in between.

Wild West

We packed for winter and summer, and it was a good thing that we did, said goodbye to our fur girl, and flew out of Tampa.

Wild West

Over the next 2 weeks, we would experience warm sunny days, freezing rain, snow, sleet, cold windy days, fog, clouds, very hot dry days, desert heat, thunderstorms, dust bowls.....and even a flash flood.

Goodbye Tampa

We had an early flight from Tampa to Dallas

Dallas to Jackson Hole. We were getting close and getting excited! This is a part of the country none of us had seen before.

Flight

The Grand Tetons are in sight.

Flight

I couldn't decide if this was Jenny Lake or Jackson Lake, but after exploring this area for several days, I have concluded that it is Spalding Bay, the southern end of Jackson Lake.

Flight

Flying by Grand Teton, the highest peak in the Tetons at 13,770 feet. Also the second highest peak in Wyoming.

Flight

LANDED!

Airport

The airport is pretty small and very western to fit the area. I think we were the only arriving flight.

Airport

WELCOME TO GRAND TETONS WYOMING!

I always wondered why people visited Jackson Hole. I had no idea it was the city that linked visitors to the amazing Grand Tetons or that Wyoming was so picturesque. I guess I should have picked up a map and a book at some point in my life. Well, I know now!

Day 1 Complete.

After spending the rest of our travel day in the Grand Tetons, we spent the next morning and afternoon there as well. By early evening, we were heading north to Yellowstone.

We woke up early, grabbed a quick bite, fueled up, re-iced the cooler, and headed out to catch some beautiful golden morning sunshine:

After Yellowstone, we returned for one more day in the Tetons. Even though we saw plenty of wildlife in Yellowstone, we were hoping to see a little more before heading to Utah, where we expected to see none.
