Mountain time!


snow WY

Ignore the bugs, but note the snow on the ground as we approached Teton National Park yesterday afternoon.  This, after spotting one moose and three deer.  Oh how we love seeing the wildlife!

We got all settled in our favorite primitive campsite, welcomed by a small army of mosquitoes.  Noah could have left that pair off the ark, as far as I am concerned, but I know other critters love to feast on them.  Eat faster!

We enjoyed a very nice dinner at Hatcher Resort last night, then decided to just chill at the moho after all our driving—1,900 miles in 48 hours!  Neither one of us mind doing that—occasionally.  Getting here to all this beauty was worth it, despite the mosquitoes.

This morning we are off to the 10a service at Chapel of the Transfiguration.  This is a quaint old church in the middle of God’s country inside the park.  Peaceful, casual, and a great place to worship with people from all over the world.  It’s a popular spot.  When we brought the kids here many years ago, it was so crowded that we all had to sit outside on the benches and watch/listen through the open windows.  Surrounded by that beauty, who cares.

P1060884We will leave here in the morning and trade this beauty for Yellowstone and its different scenery for two nights.  More beautiful country awaits us on our journey north to Canada.

Happy Sunday.  Life is chilly (41!) but good, y’all!

Have a fabulous day and get some rest honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to the babies. :)

Wow that mountain scenery looks absolutely amazing. And how cool that you got to see a moose. I really want to see a moose someday. Traveling out west is something I've always wanted to do. Have you seen any grizzlies??
