In The Tetons! And Our First Teton Bear!!!
We made it! We came up to Grand Teton National Park a day early. We looked up the weather report and they were calling for snow last night and today, so we came up Monday. We’re glad we did!
Last Sunday, we drove up to Dubois for the day, but was actually a little disappointed. Being a Sunday, many places in the town were closed. Some of it may have just been the time of the year too. It’s a little early for their busy season. But we had lunch in town and walked along the shops and looked in windows. And then we decided to do a test drive up to the Tetons since it was only another 53 miles to get there!
The drive to Dubois was a pretty one though. We saw more Pronghorn along the way! And tons of deer too!
This canyon that we drove through was also beautiful! The rock was such a deep shade of red!!
Tuesday, we headed into town to buy groceries and see what all is there and on our way back we saw this herd of Elk at the National Elk Refuge in Jackson.
And then later, less than a mile from where we’re staying we saw our first bear in the Tetons! This Black Bear was just walking around feeding. We stayed there to watch until it took off into the trees.
Yesterday afternoon, we got a surprise. It started snowing A LOT!!!
We currently don’t have WiFi where we’re staying so my blogs will be less frequent, but will include more. We’ll keep taking more pics and add them here as we can on the blog. So keep coming back!
Happy trails everyone!
