Spectacular Views & Bars

Today we had a leisurely breakfast that Greg fixed for us despite our protestations about his fixing us breakfast but we did not hesitate to wolf it down.  Then we planned the day, a ride through Jackson to the Grand Teton National Park.

The weather was ideal - the temperature almost reach 80 degrees F.  Wow we were thrilled.  We stopped several times on the way to take pictures at the one after another "the best picture spot".  I think historically this area ranks up there with Yosemite with no record of a bad picture ever being taken.

For lunch we slummed it by going to the Jackson Lake Hotel...... and the view from the lobby was rather impressive-  so much so, it had to be included in this posting as the first photo.  Everyone enjoyed the view and lunch on a balcony facing the range.

We returned to Jackson and parked at the visitors' center and walked into town to do the tourist thing and then meet Greg at the Silver Dollar Bar for dinner. After dinner it was over to the Million Dollar Bar to see the saddle stools (each bar stool is a saddle) and buy souvenirs.

The day closed with laundry being done and wine being drunk with lots of ideas of what to see and the history behind the area. Tomorrow is the long anticipated ride of the world famous Beartooth Highway - everyone is excited
