Colter Bay in Grand Teton National Park
This jackrabbit got spooked by us while we were bushwhacking up the side of a mountain in Death Valley National Park.
Most honeymoons would not have the word “desert” as part of the festivities. I’m kinda weird!
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. When you have strong winds in a mountain environment, it’s a lot like gusty winds in a city with tall buildings. The wind gets channeled into certain areas and greatly magnifies the force. 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.

Mount Washburn is located in the north central part of Yellowstone National Park with a peak elevation of 10,243 feet (3,107 m).
Trout Lake was worth the 150 feet of elevation that we had to climb to get to this peaceful clear lake.
