Grand Teton NP
Marina at Coulter Bay on Jackson Lake
Friday, 1 September - Sunday, 3 September, 2017
As we drove south from Yellowstone to Grand Teton NP, there was more road construction south of West Thumb. We were lucky again and didn't have any long waits to get through very long sections of 1 lane road.
We were much relieved to get a campsite at Grand Teton and were surprised to find we also had a cell phone signal. We were able to use the internet at the Laundromat to catch up on blogs and emails.
The weather is lovely, but the smoke in the air again mars the beauty somewhat. The park was very crowded, but that is to be expected on the last holiday weekend of the summer. We love the mountains and the lakes and the contrasts between them. We went up to one high overlook, but the smoke was thick. You can see how smoky in almost all the pictures.
We went out after supper two evenings, hoping to spot elk and other wildlife. This first night we saw about a dozen elk, but it was nearly dark and they were pretty far off,
so no pictures. We did see a deer and two fawns and another red fox.
We spent Sunday doing laundry, charging batteries, etc. It was a nice, lazy day.
