Places Visited: Wyoming: The scenic Teton National Park
July 30 through August 5, 2006: Colter Bay Village Campground in Teton National Park near Moran, Wyoming: N43° 54.659' W110° 38.526' $15.00 NO hookups with paved interior roads and gravel spots. Nice, clean park and you really do not need hookups in the summer.
August 5, through August 12, Gros Ventre Campground in Teton National Park near Jackson, Wyoming: N43° 36.979' W110° 40.000' $15.00 NO hookups with paved interior roads and gravel spots. Nice, clean park and you really do not need hookups in the summer.
We moved the motorhome from Jackson Hole to Colter Bay Village in the northern part of Teton National Park. That entire drive was through Teton National Park Valley, with the mighty Tetons providing a backdrop on our western flank. A more scenic drive is hard to find. Eight days later we retraced our path and moved the motorhome south to Gros Ventre Campground just north of Jackson where we spent another week.
When in the Tetons you are almost always going to be able to see magnificent mountains to the west.
Sometimes those mountains are reflected in a pond or fast moving stream.
At other times you might catch a quiet moment near a beaver pond.
There are many lakes and coves that catch appealing reflections at certain times of the day.
Marinas present themselves on many of the lakes. Scattered islands beckon the adventurous.
Cloud formations interacting with the majestic mountains are another source of wonder.
Then there is this old barn that is in so many pictures you see of the Tetons. When you see that barn in a picture or photograph with those unmistakable mountains in the background you know the artist was sitting on Mormon Row in the Tetons.
Buffalo seem to constantly be on the move. They are fun to watch and photograph.
Sometimes the scenery doesn't need a buffalo to make it complete.
But then, when an old bull ambles by you are compelled to take one more picture.
Until next time remember how good life is.
