Day 10! Yellowstone to the Grand Tetons

Today was a driving day. We left Yellowstone for the Grand Tetons. It was a very pleasant drive, mostly through forests still with winter snow. We had a lovely lunch near Colter Bay eating Teton cheesesteak. We first had cheesesteak in the form of a pizza when we visited with our dear friend Nat in Pennsylvania many moons ago and have loved it ever since.

At one point, Simon looked in his rear-view mirror and there crossing the road was a bear! We quickly turned the car around but we couldn’t see where he’d gone to in the forest. If we had been just a few seconds later we would have come face to face!

From what we have seen on our drive into the Tetons, it’s going to be a wonderful stay.

  1. Yeah, I certainly see why the mountains are named the Grand Tetons! And Lone Tree Lake in Yellowstone is quite interesting. I wonder why only one tree?
