South Fork Teton Canyon

I had dinner last night with John and his family at The Blue Lion in Jackson. They are staying for a bit on the Jackson side so I invited them over to Driggs for the day.

My plan was to take the ski lift ride at Grand Targhee but access to Targhee was shut down due to the Bluegrass Festival. Instead we decided to hike the South Fork of Teton Canyon.

John's daughter Madison and her friend Jillian were able to see a moose.

After the hike, we spent some time at Casa Budde West. Kathy had talked John into renting a camper for their "adventure". I sensed that John was not totally on board with the idea. Hint: while in Jackson they stayed at the Ritz Carlton at Teton Village.

Kathy asked me to help her setup the tent so she would be sure it would work for their adventure. Alas, she forgot the poles. John was so happy that he was not going to have to sleep in that tent.

As we were leaving to return to Grand Targhee, a wedding party showed up... along with their dogs.

Just before the ceremony started the bride asked everyone to turn away as she had to pee.
