Colter Bay, Grand Teton National Park


Colter Bay and the Tetons in afternoon sunshine!  We moved our camper south back to the Tetons and enjoyed a sun-drenched walk around Colter Bay during our last afternoon of this fabulous vacation.

Canoes for rent.




Towards the end of our walk, it clouded up again and eventually rained some more but that was ok.  We completed our journey with warm hearts and a grateful attitude for friends and the stunning beauty of nature.
You will find many more beautiful skies from around the world at SkyWatchFriday, check it out!
On the 4th of July we are heading back to a different part of Wyoming for a two week camping trip in the Big Horn Mountains.  Expect more pictures of  big, wonderful Wyoming!!

Oh you lucky gal!!!! Are the same friends going with you on this next trip???? Can't wait to see pictures.

The Tetons are marvelous... Why didn't you rent a canoe?????? Bet it was a tad cool for that.. Glad you walked around the bay though.

Have a great trip. We'll miss you.
Hugs,
Betsy
