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.
