Sinks Canyon State Park

Sinks Visitors Center birds of the air

Sinks cave entranceThe Visitors Center at Sinks Canyon was awesome.  Small, but one of the best we have seen.  Lots of displays for kids of all ages to enjoy and appreciate. 

And right outside is this incredible scene above—the Popo Agie River is fast and mighty as it dashes down the hill into this underground limestone cave.  The river winds its way one-quarter mile down the road, where it then pops out at The Rise.  These fat trout are enjoying being fed by the many tourists  standing on the platform.Trout at the Rise

After leaving the visitors center, we drove another scenic loop road back to our campground.  Another fine day in America.

So now the Griswolds are out enjoying the Grand Tetons today.  Be still my heart…they are beautiful.  Batteries are charged and ready!  Missy, behave while we are gone.

Enjoy your Saturday.  We sure will…and will have photos to prove it!

I'm sure that many a fisherman stands there and drools over the site of all of those big fat trout so close and yet so far!

I've never been to the Grand Tetons so I'm really looking forward to seeing them with you!
