After months of planning and many hours of driving, we finally made it on Saturday to our first destination – Grand Teton National Park. Having been misinformed by my Rough Guide, we arrived at 6am in darkness, led to believe that this was the only way we would get a place in a decent campsite. As it happened, people were still getting sites at 3pm… but never mind, we are very fond of our secluded little site and its resident chipmunk Gordon. After setting up the tent, we decided to walk to Signal Mountain. Our first view in the early morning sunlight of the Teton Mountains was jaw-droppingly beautiful! Yesterday’s walk to Hermitage Point was another stunner, amazing views over lakes and mountains in every direction. In 10 miles we counted 10 other people – it is a mystery to us why no one else uses these trails!
