Another early morning departure from Jackson and we were off to Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. My American mother urged us to go there if we could as it is such a spectacular range. Spectacular because there are no foothills. The mountains just rise straight up from the valley floor. We were a bit dubious about the weather as it was quite cool and cloudy when we left. We thought that this was going to be a rainy day. As luck would have it, the sky cleared and by the time we got to the National Park, the sky had cleared and we just had puffy white clouds in a lovely blue sky. Virginia was right! These mountains are spectacular. Click on the heading for this blog to see the National Park website. We spent most of the day driving through Grand Teton National Park, taking the scenic route and stopping at view sites and taking our time. Straight after Grand Tetons we kept driving North into Yellowstone National Park. We stopped at a few places on the way, but pretty much drove right up through the park to West Yellowstone to the KOA there. We had a cabin booked for two nights in West Yellowstone.
