Jim and Gayle may be at Crested Butte, the wildflower capital of the world, but the Tetons area at this time of the year is no slouch. First, here is a shot done from my driver’s seat as I was leaving the spot where I boondocked for a week.
Looking at a broad expanse is nice, but getting up close and personal is rewarding, as well.
It’s not just the Tetons. Craters Of The Moon, the most barren, desolate scene you could imagine, still treated visitors with life.
Let’s finish this wildflower extravaganza with a shot from the Sawtooths in Idaho.
Welcome aboard. After troubles with Google’s Blogspot modifying my photos without my consent, I decided it was time to say goodbye to them as hosts for my blog. Hopefully, if I do this right, this will be my new blog.
If you are new to this blog, my old stuff, all the way back to 2008, can be viewed at These Are The Voyages…
Let’s start this first post with a hike around Jenny Lake. (Well, part way around…)
The hike begins at the boat dock at South Jenny Lake in the Tetons. Crossing the outflow on a footbridge, the trail winds through the forest. Early on, we were given a nice scene of wildflowers in front of pines, in front of peaks.
The trail led along the lake edge, a low route that was new to me, as previously I had been on a higher path.
The hike comes with a reward for all that effort. Hidden Falls is about 400 feet above the lake, and that was our destination.
Discretion being the better part of valor, rather than walk back, we sat on a boat and were ferried across the lake to our starting point.
