So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Adieu

David and I have had a wonderful stay in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. I hate to leave, it is so beautiful; but we have to go home. I will take many memories with me, and lots of photos to carry me over to our return trip, hopefully, next year!

We took our last drive to our favorite spot, Jenny Lake. I will miss the quiet and peaceful serenity of the lake. Oh, to have this in my neck of the woods.

It's really hard to say good-bye.

We have explored the area from the Maude Noble Cabin...

to Jenny's Lake in the snow....

to Signal Mountain....

to Coulter Bay....

and to Gros Ventre (pronounced Grow Vaunt)....

Some would think the snowfall would mar our vacation, but that was not so. If anything, the snow added a new dimension to the Tetons and the park. I am so glad we came this week and I can't wait to come again.

Hurry up next year!!


  1. Very nice summary of a great trip!

  2. The photograph on your header is just glorious. Was it taken in America or another country?

  3. Clare, the photo was taken in Gros Ventre, Wyoming, America. I love that photo. My husband has a similar photo and we are going to use both to have Christmas cards printed. It was taken 3 days ago during a snowstorm in the Teton mountains of Wyoming.

    Thank you for your comment. :)

  4. Some days I get behind -- I had meant to comment on these beautiful photographs - I LOVE the Gros Ventre River Ranch (you're right it would make a perfect holiday card) with the snowfall and the one with the beautiful horses feeding, and the Tetons, and the window viewpoint from Maude's cabin!

  5. Thanks, Kevin. I always appreciate your comments. You are very kind!
