Exiting the South Entrance of Yellowstone, I am on the highway to Grand Teton National Park and I can tell unlike AC DC there’s going to be a lot of things to slow me down. From what I have experienced so far, I know resistance will be futile, I’m going down … All the way!
I am now on John D. Rockefeller, Jr Memorial Parkway, a combination of Highway 89, 191 and 287. Like most of the roads I have traveled in Yellowstone it is a well paved two lane highway that becomes very scenic to drive.
With my camera's self timer set, I soon capture myself blended in with the Grand Teton National Park welcome sign.
I am about to discover another of America's hidden gems.
So far, from every perspective the views of the Teton Mountain Range are dazzling, gorgeous, radiant, spectacular and magnificent. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then I still have 995 words to go.
A colorful flower bed extends from the shore line and floats on the surface of the calm clear water.
Across the lake a thin layer of clouds hangs below the jagged peaks of a small mountain range. A nice contrast of white, gray and blue. I stay at Jackson Lake long enough to see the morning breeze begin to make it's presence known on the area.
Still a beautiful sight to see.
It becomes difficult to move but I sense more of nature's beauty awaits me. More sharp contrast of clear blue skies, lush green vegetation and jagged mountain peaks with patches of still remaining white winter snow.
