Grand Teton National Park- September 15, 2012

This morning we started the day by going out for breakfast at Bubba’s in Jackson, Wy. along with Larry and Joanne.  After breakfast we took off separately to travel about the Grand Teton National Park.  Tom and I traveled the Moose/Wilson road into the park and saw 2 moose cows.  We stopped at the visitor center in Moose and then continued on a northerly route in the Park.  The smoke in the area seemed heavier this morning.  We have heard about 2 more fires in the area called the Buffalo fires in the Teton National Forest in addition to the Horse Thief fire in the Gros Ventre mountain range.   After a stop at Jenny Lake we continued on to Jackson Lake and Dam where we ate a picnic lunch.  In the afternoon we took a jaunt off the main road where we saw a herd of buffalo and an area with pronghorns.  On the Gros Ventre road we rode up to the Lower Slide Lake, another beautiful blue lake.  Returning to  Jackson, we stopped in the downtown square and walked about the shops.  Then we went back to the campground and picked up Larry and Joanne before going out to dinner at a Mexican restaurant.  This would be our last time together before returning home as we plan to go different directions tomorrow when we leave Jackson.
