Trip Review: The Grand Tetons

The Grand Tetons in Wyoming is the mountain range that I have been waiting to see most of my life! I first saw them in an old western Shane. It has drawn me to them for some reason… No idea why. The Solar Eclipse is going through most of Wyoming and the center of the totality (the area where the total eclipse can be seen) will be passing over Casper, Wy. Casper will experience one of the longest totality in the US. I did not a better “excuse” to drive from Austin,Tx to Wyoming. And the Grand Tetons are about 6 hours away from Casper. So visiting the Tetons will be possible! I only have like 6 days to do all of this…. It would be close.

This post is about the Tetons only.  If you want to read about the Eclipse, Click here.

I saw the Tetons from MILES away!

I saw the Tetons from MILES away!  I was thrilled to FINIALLY see them on the horizon!!  I HAD to stop for a picture.  When I got to the sign for the entrance to the Grand Teton National Park, another picture.  Then I stopped something like 15 times for photos… This place feels different.

Driving around here is weird.  EVERYTHING was beautiful.  The lake was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen BECAUSE the Tetons are in the background.  A grass field was breathtaking because of the mountains.  Hell, the PARKING LOT was gorgeous because of the background.  It was weird.

I spend about $150 at the gift shop.  Not because I needed to, but because I wanted to.

The lake… I could of spend the rest of my life at that lake.

Something this breathtaking should be illegal.

So I needed to look up synonyms for “beautiful” because I was using the same one or two words over and over again.  Here 50 synonyms for beautiful:

All in all I would say that I am MORE involve with the Tetons now than I was before!  I have made a commitment to see Wyoming at least ONCE a year for the rest of my life.  Even writing this right now, I am wearing a Grand Tetons tee-shirt.  Wyoming is in my blood now I and can’t get it out of me.  I could live in Wyoming for a year and not see everything I want to.  There is something calming about it.  Peaceful.  Majestic.  Calming.  Home.
