Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

The next day, we visited Jackson Hole and then drove up to Grand Teton National Park. This was a wonderful park, with dramatic mountains and beautiful lakes. It would be cool to get up on those peaks for hiking. But, at this point of the year there was still too much snow.

While there is certainly more to the park than the Tetons themselves, that does appear to be where the camera points all the time. We did a nice easy day hike around String Lake at the base of the peaks.
