A Return to the Tetons

“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature

may heal and give strength to body and soul.” — John Muir

I think John Muir nailed it on the head and I am pleased to report that Bryce and I enjoyed an exceptionally generous helping of beauty in Grand Teton National Park. The leaves had just passed their golden peak, but the park was still a visual feast, and gloriously empty of other visitors. September is officially our new favorite time of year for National Parks in this part of the country. We saw a black bear, lots of moose, bull elk (who were bugling like mad throughout the park), deer, as well as a coyote, porcupine, and a host of different birds including geese, egrets, and blue heron. The aspens and cottonwoods were still ablaze and the air was perfectly crisp, but not cold. And it was, of course, fun to reminisce about our last weekend in the Tetons, when we got engaged. It was a perfect fall weekend in every way.
