Today, we drove over the mountains to see the Grand Tetons. It was over an hour drive but worth it. As we got higher in elevation, we could see a lot of fall color change.
Well, this would be a much more interesting drive later in the year.
We are getting close. Only one more mountain range to cross.
Jackson is known for the Elk arches.. Of course, we had to get a picture of them. We took pictures from the truck. We did not want to walk with all the people in town.
We did see a very disturbing accident in Jackson, WY. The driver did not move over far enough to avoid the traffic barrier. The RV is a complete loss but everyone looks to be OK.
At the national park, we stopped at the visitor center. They have a really good 3D relief of the park.
More pretty views.
No, the white flakes are not dandruff. Yes, it was snowing. No, the camera did not pick up how hard it was snowing but the video did a better job.
The views across the lake were great.
The wind must have been much worse earlier. This was snapped off clean. Yes, it is still cold.
The mountain range is rugged.
When you see “fog” on the mountains that is snow. Several times we had it falling on us.
These mountains are so stunning,
We drove up to top of signal mountain. Pretty valley.
Lots of pull offs with beautiful views.
More pretty views from pullouts.
We had thought about boondocking at an area that was said to have pretty views. They were right about the views but we decided not to move the RV up here. It was going to be below freezing every night the rest of this week.
This area is a fantastic display of nature.
Do you see the illusion?
Look close at the mountain to the right. Does is look like it is an arch?
Even zoomed in the illusion holds. This is incredibly rare. The clouds have to be just the right color and the snow can not have sun directly shining on it or the illusion breaks.
More pretty landscapes.
On our return to the RV, we stopped at a Brewery. They served really good pizza.
Even the “back side” of the Tetons is pretty.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
