Grand Teton National Park, WY - Coming from Wilson you will enter the Teton National Park through a "back road" which is definitely NOT RV friendly and for everyone's safety, DRIVE SLOW! The road is very narrow and there is a lot to see, so there are many distracted drivers - be careful. Although there is a nominal fee to enter the park, it is well worth it. There is so much to see at any time of the year, snow capped mountains, lakes, wildflowers and many wild animals so keep your eyes peeled.

We only encountered a small herd of elk, a scattered herd of pronghorn antelope and one very active buffalo. For all you shutter bugs, the mountains and wild flowers are a dream come true. The constant changes from the sun light and clouds will have you taking 2,000 photos in no time! I guess that's what took me so long to get this blog post up. lol
Jenny Lake is one of the smaller lakes located halfway through the park and is definitely worth the stop. There is a hiking trail that loops the entire lake and a very scenic hike to Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point even further up. Depending on whether you take the short boat ride across the lake or start from the visitors center it's anywhere from a 1.8-5.8 miles round-trip. Keep in mind that the Inspiration Point hike is a little more challenging and is not for the faint of heart. A lot of photo ops here of waterfalls, mountains, the lake and the occasional animal sighting. That gave us just enough time to get back to the campsite and get the grill fired up for another cookout. We did have a small child in tow so that does add more time to our already eventful day, but she loved every minute of it...almost.
