A Perfect Saturday
Yesterday we got had the wonderful opportunity to go snow shoeing in Grand Teton National Park.
It takes us about 2 hours (in good conditions to get there). As we started to get into the high country the sites got prettier and prettier.
The mountains ahead looked to pretty with their dusting of new snow, I just had to take a photo through the windshield as my Greg was driving.
It didn't take long for the roads to get pretty bad but the scenery kept getting better and better.
Looking through the side window at the trees was a treat.
A friendly moose welcomed us as the visitor's center.
Starting up the Taggart Lake trail you pass over a bridge. You can hear the stream under the snow, but can't see much water. The "Grand" encourages you to keep trudging on.
Once you get over the ridge, the view is amazing. I doubt if there could be another snowshoe trail any more amazing than this one is. Sorry about the deep blue sky. I had my polarizer dialed in a bit strong.
You have to stop often to admire the scenery.
Taking a little break at the destination is always nice.... Hard to believe there is a lake under there.
Once we were finished we got to enjoy a beautiful sunset. I've never seen such golden highlights on the mountains.
