Our World Tuesday – A Hike by the Lake

Colter Bay (7 of 5)

During my brief stay at Yellowstone, sister Ellen and I went down to the Grand Tetons National Park just south of Yellowstone and looked around. We went on a short, flat hike, of about 2.3 miles on a little Island next to the Colter Bay visitor center and the Jackson Lake marina.

It was a nice mixture of shoreline and woods. I was able to get a few photos of some of the wildflowers in the woods.

I like old dried out tree trunks.

We found some berries including these. Bears eat berries as well so even though we were close to the visitor center we stayed aware of what was going on around us.

The shoreline was beautiful.

And here is my sister, the Park Ranger, Ellen taking a break. I felt guilty taking up all of her three days off. But we had fun. Check out her blog.  


And across the lake the Grand Tetons. The most powerful and majestic mountains I have ever seen, even when obscured by forest fire smoke.

We mosied along taking over an hour for the walk. We both take lots of pics, and especially when you are shooting in  manual mode, that takes lots of time. At least it does for me. I hope that you are not tired of my adventures with Ellen. I have several more posts coming. We saw a lot during my three days with her.

I’m linking with Our World Tuesday. Come join us.

    Great set of pictures – the smoky image of the mountains is very good indeed (shame about the air quality!)

    Hello, the Tetons are beautiful. It is one of my favorite parks. Your sister is lucky to work in such a gorgeous area. Wonderful photos. Happy Labor Day, have a great new week ahead!

    It must have been nice to spend this time with your sister seeing such magnificent sights, Yogi, and getting in some good hikes. We visited Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons about 7 years ago so we are overdue for a return visit.

    I bet your sister had a lot of fun hanging out with you for three days. I know I would’ve with my brother. I thought I had seen the Grand Tetons in person, but after seeing your photo, I would remember them.
