my FIRST love: THE grand TETON

FullSizeRender

I LOVE the Tetons…as in the Grand Tetons. I grew up in the shadows of them and thought they were pretty but didn’t truly fall in LOVE until my first time hiking over Hurricane Pass when I was 14. I’ll never forget coming up to the summit on Hurricane Pass after a BRUTAL, yes, it’s hard and yes, I was a teenager, hike to the top. As I reached the summit, there stood the Tetons and the Grand bolding applauding me for my accomplishment of the summit. Those mountains were mesmerizing and larger than life! I felt like I could reach out and touch them. That day, I fell in LOVE with the Tetons.

I’ve spent many days since then in the Tetons, climbing the Grand, the middle. Hiking/running/backpacking/skiing in and around the canyons surrounding the Teton Range. There’s something magical, mysterious and captivating about the Tetons and their majestic beauty.

Today my family biked in the Park with the Tetons overshadowing us all day long. I have many memories with the family adventuring in the Tetons, riding the boat across Jenny Lake, bear encounters and more. The family motto: A family that plays together, stays together. We’re missing a few siblings but it was fun to get out and enjoy NATURE. We laughed and had fun along the way.

I think this is for the visitors from Asia. They have holes in the ground for bathrooms. It made us laugh. Not a typical sign you see daily.
