Goodbye Yellowstone…Hello Grand Tetons!

I love how the mountains appear to just sit on the water.

We saw this book in all of the visitor centers, and the kids laughed every time!

Our first stop in Grand Tetons was Colter Bay Village.  We walked part of the Lakeshore Trail.

Rock-throwing ensued.

I really wish we had stopped the car to get a better shot from this vantage point!

Next, we took a boat shuttle from the Jenny Lake Visitor Center.  It only took about ten minutes.

After we disembarked from the boat, we hiked to Inspiration Point.  This was a real hike, as opposed to the strolls along the boardwalks of Yellowstone.  The incline up the mountain was pretty constant, and quite challenging!

Amazingly, n did not complain and claimed that he was not tired.  k claimed she had about “10% battery life left”, but she did well overall too.  I probably complained the most!

We bought a round trip boat ticket.  It was refreshing when the driver maneuvered the boat so that we were sprayed with water from the lake after our hot hike.
