To Cody, Wyoming

Grand Teton National Park

After stopping at the Continental Divide for the obligatory photo, we left Yellowstone from the south along the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Memorial Parkway, where the volcanic origins of Yellowstone transition to the Teton Range.

Grand Teton National Park is justly famous for its jagged peaks that abruptly rise from the base of glacial lakes, most notably the immense Jackson Lake. We hiked along Jackson's Coulter Bay and the following day took a boat across Jenny Lake to hike well beyond Inspiration Point, where the crowds finally thinned.

In Grand Teton National Park we stayed two nights at Signal Mountain Lodge, which has a lovely setting right on Jackson Lake.

On a side trip to Jackson, WY we enjoyed a street fair and the town's famous arch made of antlers (bottom).
