Grand Teton National Park – driving through..

Pays to leave early, what a beautiful sunrise.

Left Moran by 6:30, gaining entrance to the Grand Teton National Park by 7. Stopped at the first pull off and noted this group of happy campers on a 4 hour water journey. Arrangements for these outings can be made at the lodges throughout the Parks and there are many options available.

Looks like a fun option..

After this stopped in the Jackson Lake Lodge area. In all lodge areas gas stations with full service are available, as well as other services for car, health, and hygiene.

Jackson Lake, an enormous body of water with smoky mountains providing a mysterious view.

The John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway, is an integral part of this Park. Rockefeller visited Jackson Hole in the 1920s and was concerned how development was being conducted. He purchased and donated 32,000 acres to the Park. Much of the trees along this Parkway were dying and unsure why.

The South Entrance to Yellowstone awaits at the end of the Rockefeller Parkway. Stopped at the first waterfall past the entrance. Had a short walk in, but worth it, Crawford Creek.

On to see more of Yellowstone.
