Grand Teton National Park in WY, June 1-6

I thoroughly enjoyed the Grand Teton National Park ... trees, lakes,
wildlife, and the mountains! Here it was all about the mountains --
the mountains and clouds (pic1), the mountains and sage (pic2), the
mountains and a lone aspen (pic3), the mountains with storm clouds
(pic4), the mountains through the Jackson Lodge window (pic5), the
mountains while fishing on Jackson Lake (pic6), and the mountains as I
was leaving the park (pic7).

The first night I camped at Jenny Lake Campground, which is in the
park. It was an OK spot, but expensive at $20/night. So, I asked the
ranger and he pointed me to a great little free campground just north
of the park off of the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Memorial Parkway. It
was the best camping ever -- quiet with the sound of the river -- and
I met other women going solo there too!

The Grand Tetons had some great scenic drives in the park and into the
neighboring national forests. I saw my first wild moose, buffalo with
their calfs, elk, pronghorns, ravens, blue birds, yellow-headed
blackbirds ... My camera doesn't take good far away pictures, so the
pics didn't come out ... but, seeing them was cool all the same.
