National Park Kick: Grand Teton

Grand Teton viewed from Inspiration Point, Grand Teton National Park, WY - July 2013

Inspiration Point, Grand Teton National Park, WY – July 2013

Our favorites:
See: The view of the Tetons and the Park below from Inspiration Point (moderate 2 miles if you take the shuttle boat across Jenny Lake – Hidden Falls, on the way up, is not to be missed)
Do: Garnet Canyon Trail (we picked this hike because of its prominence in Jennifer Woodlief’s “A Bolt From the Blue” – a book we both just read about the 2003 Jenny Lake Rangers rescue of climbers struck by lightning on Grand Teton. Our most challenging hike so far – 8.4 strenuous miles through forests, alpine meadows, and boulder fields – this trail offered spectacular views of Jackson Hole valley and of Middle Teton)
Do: Early morning float trip on the Snake River (our guide Wayne was excellent – booked through the Grand Teton Lodge Company. We chose them in part because they will shuttle you to the boat launch and back to the lodge after your trip)
Eat (dinner): Cafe Genevieve in Jackson, WY (creative cuisine)
Eat (dinner): Mural Room at Jackson Lake Lodge, with the sun setting over the Tetons as backdrop
Stay: Cabins at Colter Bay Village (original 1920’s log cabin, updated with modern amenities)
