Jackson Hole, Wyoming July 9, 2015

We left Bondurant, WY at 8:30AM this morning, but not with out a little scare. My Father-in-law had a little incident coming down the stairs after dropping off the cabin keys. We were sitting in the car and heard him yell in pain. He fell down the stairs and hit his back and knocked the wind out of him. 
Arrived at Jackson Hole at 9AM and checked out some fun gift shops! We also stopped at the welcome center and saw a bear and were chased by some elk! 

After a little tourist shopping we headed to Kelly, WY. A small little town and then headed to Mormon row, where we saw the famous barn with the Tetons in the background. 

This was our first wildlife spotting of buffalo. Then we stopped at the visitor center which had some amazing windows! 
Next, we headed into the park where our first stop was Jenny Lake, which is just breathtaking!

 We began hiking around Jenny Lake to go to Hidden Falls! 
We spotted a mama moose & baby moose! Then continue hiking! We even met a new friend from the Bronx. 

Found a cute little cave! 😄  Before we found the hidden falls, we found a nice mini fall. 
Then, we hiked farther up the mountain and we found he hidden falls! So beautiful!!! 😄❤️ 

Then we began hiking back around the lake with our new friend Su & spotted a bear! We hiked over 6 miles and that is more exercise than I have done all year so my feet were a little sore! 

And a deer! 

We got back in the car & began driving to The North Jenny Lake Entrance which is where string lake is! The water was like glass & just georgeous! 

Drove to Victory, Idaho to our sweet little cabin for the next two nights and my grizzly man cooked us some T-Bone and we enjoyed a nice supper last night before we headed to bed we played a little deuces wild rummy before hitting the hay!
