Grand Teton National Park
After a night in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest, Idaho, we
finally reached Grand Teton, the first port of call in the 'Great
Escape, National Parks of the American West' article that Caroline
saved from the Lonely Planet Traveller which inspired our grand tour
of the USA. In Utah we had walked in temperatures of up to 110F,
here we started at 54F – brrr.
We walked the moderate trail of Taggart Lake-Bradley Lake. Shimmering green lakes framed by the Teton mountains. We walked along trails scented with pine trees and mountain herbs. Many meadows of multiple wild flowers add colour to our meanderings.
Now the village is occupied only by gophers.
Snake river to the Teton Range
Our second walk was curtailed due to the presence of a black bear and followed by a swift visit to the shop to buy bear spray (an enormous can of pepper spray)
