Grand Teton National Park - Day 3

This was kind of a lazy day for us.  In the morning, we went to the Jenny Lake Overlook and hiked down the trail along the lakeshore to the Jenny Lake campground and back.  On this trail, you get a great view of the lake and the mountains that rise right up from it.  In fact, you are so close to them that you can't see the top of Grand Teton as it is hidden behind the closer peak on the way up to Grand Teton's summit.

Grand Teton National Park - Day 2

Grand Teton National Park is a great place to see fabulous mountain peaks and lakes.  It doesn't have the range of short hikes we like to take these days but has lots of longer hikes, so it is not as great a place for a longer time.  We are here for two more days so we decided to take a leisurely time going around the driving tour.

Yellowstone National Park - 3

Today was geyser day at Yellowstone for us.  We toured the rest of the geyser basins around Old Faithful, the Upper and Lower Geyser Basins. We started at the Black Sand Basin which is about a mile from Old Faithful. I did my best to name these geysers and other hot features accurately, but probably got some of them wrong.  But as Jennifer said, we saw things that bubble, stink, and squirt.  And that just about sums up hot pools, fumaroles, and geysers.
