If you listen to the pundits, a lot of US citizens are understandably upset with the political climate and frustrated by present lack of leadership. There is a lot to criticize about my birth land right now, and it makes me sad for my people, but there is one thing that America got right. The National Park system is something to boast about.
With clean facilities, well marked trails, interesting museums and well-trained, friendly rangers, any trip to a national park is well worth your time. Our visit to the Grand Tetons was no exception.
America’s National Parks fill with visitors not only from every state, but from around the world. We met one French couple that came back every vacation to hike in the Grand Teton.
My words fall short when it comes to describing the majesty of America’s national parks, so I will let the pictures do the talking.
Do you know I’ve never been there, Pat? What a lovely bunch of photos! I must put this one on my Must-See List. Those mountains are so majestic — they kind of emphasize how small we are and cause us to look Heavenward for help solving our myriad problems. And your last photo is perfect!!
You would absolutely love this region. I hope you get to see it someday. Bet Domer and Dallas would love it as well.
It’s been nearly 40 years since I’ve been to the Grand Tetons. I look forward to (hopefully) being able to do a little traveling in the coming year (family issues permitting). It’s been way too long.
Alana, I sure hope that you will be able to ramble back to Wyoming and the Tetons real soon.
Nothing compares to the Tetons. The Rockies may be higher but they are not as photogenic. There are some great hikes in the park some of which are easy, some difficult. While in the park make sure you visit Jenny Lake Lodge and have a buffalo burger. If you are going to Yellowstone don’t miss the Tetons.
