Grand Tetons National Park

The Grand Tetons were spectacular!  It was definitely the most beautiful place that we visited on our journey.  Snow-capped mountain views, crystal clear lakes, beautiful tall trees, waterfalls, wildlife.  These pictures don't even come close to capturing the true beauty of the place.  

The boys with the Tetons in the background.

Enjoying the view while we break for a snack on one of the trails.

Hiking around the lake.

Taking in the surroundings at Jenny Lake.

The trails were fantastic! Lots of rock stairs, beautiful trees, lake and mountain views.

Pretty section of the trail that went by the lake (you can see Dawson's orange jacket up ahead as he hiked around it).

Hidden Falls.  We hiked 3 miles to get to it and then 3 miles back and it was so worth it.

Family picture at Hidden Falls.

There were also lots of boulders to climb on. This one provided a spectacular view of the lake.

Hanging out in the Colter Bay Village area where we camped.

The mountains at sunrise.

Thankful that Dawson took a picture of Randy and I in the beautiful Tetons.

Another beautiful trail, this one around a lily-pad filled lake.

The boys at the overlook where Rockefeller Jr. had a picnic and was so amazed by the scenery that he dedicated years (and lots of money) to make sure that the area was protected so that others could come and enjoy it for years to come.  So thankful that he did.
