{kansas –> wyoming: jackson hole adventures part 1}

Last week I returned from a wonderful and relaxing vacation to Jackson Hole, Wyoming! I had previously never been to this part of the country so I was so very excited to check out new landscapes and scenery. With traveling to the area about a week or two before the busy season begins, it seemed to be a great time to visit and beat the big crowds. We had a packed agenda with plans to spend lots of time in Grand Teton National Park, fly fishing, scenic floats, ATV and other exploring adventures!

During our week in the area, we stayed in Teton Village about 20 minutes outside of Jackson. I was a big fan of staying out of the hustle and bustle of town in a more quiet area. Most days we were in Jackson at some point for either an activity, dinner or meeting a tour group, but it was nice to get back out into the mountains at the end of the day. Our first day, we walked around town to check out the sights and stretch our legs after a long day. I loved capturing the pictures from right before we got into town and then the antler arches and church right in town square.

Basically, I was in awe our entire trip. Grand Teton National Park was simply amazing. One of my favorite parts of the trip was exploring the area of Jenny Lake and the trails that filled the area. There is something so peaceful and serene about nature and admiring God’s creations.

We hit the trails first thing in the morning, which worked out perfectly because there was relatively few people on the trails. As we hiked back down later in the day, it was definitely a bit difficult to navigate around people.

Pure beauty and awe! Pictures cannot do it justice.
