The next day of our trip we headed south to Jackson Hole and the Tetons. I think I was most excited about this part of the trip, because I loved the Tetons so much when I first saw them years ago. They did not disappoint!
Our first stop was Colter Bay on Jackson Lake. This is an ideal spot to get pix of Mt. Moran which stands at 12,605ft. (3842m).
As we drove on we got better views of the hightest peak, Grand Teton, which is 13,770ft.(4197m).
Below are the stunning views we had while eating lunch at Moose Junction. I couldn't imagine a better view!
Finally we headed to the town of Jackson, which I had remembered being very quaint and cowboy. And my hubby was excited to see where they shot scenes from an old favorite movie of his, "Every Which Way But Loose".
Thankfully the antler arches are still there, so we took advantage of the photo op, but with the exception of a few touristy buildings; most of Jackson is very upscale now. No doubt it's do to all the celebs who have homes there such as Harrison Ford, Sandra Bullock and Dick Cheney. It was more art galleries and jewelry stores than tourist traps. Still we got to see it and we had fun.
My daughter, my hubby, and sis.
The drive back to Yellowstone, was just as beautiful. We really didn't want to leave! The last part of our trip was a stop over in Cody WY which I will post about next. If you want to catch up on the other days of my vacation, here are the links: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5
Bye for now!
