Through a rainy Grand Teton Park

As we pulled away from our cabin, there he was - an enormous bison just steps away, munching away, completely oblivious of any people or cars around. Something you can do when you're that size!
It was an easy enough, if wet, drive from Lake Village to the entry to Grand Teton Park where we got out first look at the 1,735 km Snake River and Jackson Lake.
The Jackson Lodge is another beautiful National Parks lodge. We just happened to arrive as a local orchestra was playing patriotic marching songs and anthems in the huge lounge on this Independence Day weekend. The view of the mountains through the gigantic windows was almost wonderful - we could vaguely see the mountains through the rain and clouds and it would surely have been spectacular on a clear day. And I bumped into an old friend
From there we stopped at the Jenny Lake Lodge but they were fully booked for lunch. So we drove the mile to the lake (Jenny Lake? Lodge) and managed to see a few peaks through the rain and cloud
As the weather was deteriorating, we decided to carry on to Jackson and look at our options for the next day. Unfortunately, as the day wore on the rain really came down. But we did find a good motel just a few minutes walk from the centre of the old town
