Grand Teton Park and Jenny Lake
The first day in the Yellowstone region we drove into Grand Teton National Park and took
a short afternoon hike around Jenny Lake, at the foot of the mountains on the east side.
The Grand Tetons as seen from the east, at a scenic view point on the side of US Highway 191
(obviously, a not well placed view point on a flat surface on the wrong side of the road).
The Grand Tetons again, with the usual group of tourists in the way:
Anne, Bob, Sylvia, Danny, Heather, Brad, Shannon, Beth, and Marcus.
A view toward the west across the southern end of Jenny Lake.
The trail and the mixed mostly-evergreen forest that surrounds the lake.
Looking westward from the trail toward the mountains.
Scattered along the shoreline at the base of the mountains were shattered granite boulders,
which often turned out to be great locations for viewing marmots.
Another view eastward across the lake.
Snow melt and spring water heading toward the lake ...
.... flows over a steep slope to form a waterfall, making a great backdrop for Anne, Shannon, and Bob.
.... and for Bob again (Anne insisted on it).
Rather than taking the trail back, you can ride one of the park's boats (well worth the small fee).
