Water Water Everywhere – String Lake

In September, almost one year ago and for my birthday, we took a paddle with our inflatable Sea Eagle kayak on String Lake in Grand Tetons National Park. To say it was one of the best birthdays ever is an understatement! This is a view taken from the boat as we floated along.

Today’s post takes us back to our vacation from September, 2019 when we explored Grand Teton National Park. Sometimes you have to improvise to have a bench to sit on. Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Benches

Mountain Flower found going up the Caribou-Targhee mountain.

High in the elevation of the Caribou-Targhee National Forest lies this mountain side of purple wildflowers. I have no idea what this flower is called, but found it quite beautiful. Taken on the 21st day of September, 2019 while on the backside of the… Continue Reading “Wildflower in Idaho”

Caribou-Targhee National Forest

As we drove up the mountain, we watched the temperature in the van dip lower and lower the higher we went. At this point we wondered when the rain would turn to snow.

Living In The Moment – Grand Tetons National Park – Jenny Lake – Sunset

When we got to the lake, the sunset peaked through broken clouds with the wind blowing hard enough to almost knock me off my feet a few times.

So you can be walking in an area that has light winds and you walk out from around cover and wham, the wind hits you with a big invisible surprise. With the wind blowing and the sun saying hello and goodbye through the clouds, it was time to take a few moments and explore one of the crown jewels of Grand Teton.

To hear only the sounds of nature and feel the movement of the water under you, makes you part of our natural world. It cleanses the soul and fills your spirit with a renewed sense of purpose. A purpose larger than anything you could possibly do at work or home while doing your daily tasks.

My birthday wish was to be right here at this moment with my sweet husband watching the sun set over the mountains and drinking hot chocolate. I like cake, but this was going to be a non-traditional birthday to remember.

Living In The Moment – Grand Tetons National Park – String Lake

String Lake is a beautiful little stretch of water located between Jenny Lake and Leigh Lake. All three lakes are connected and then flow into Jackson Lake where we had planned to spend sunset.

If you look at a topographical map of Yellowstone, the lakes and rivers really dominate the ecosystem.
