Our Grand Tetons Trip in Pictures


A couple weeks ago we returned from 13 days in glorious Grand Teton National Park. Bedge leads a photography workshop there every year, so J-Man and I tag along and we turn it into a family vacation. Grand Teton NP is one of my favorite places. It was one of my first national parks I visited, Bedge and I were married there, it’s absolutely beautiful and the wildlife experience is awesome.

There is so much to say about our trip and as I try to put everything into words I will leave you with this looooong photo recap of some of my favorite moments…


J-Man running amongst the Lupine. I wish I could have bottled up the amazing scent in the air.

 A few minutes after I took this picture the bison took off. I knew they were fast, however, seeing them run in person made me realize just how fast they can move.

On our last night in the park we saw this fox. We were coming back from mountain biking and as we were passing through the entrance station I spotted the fox coming out of the brush. It trotted up the bike path and we followed it along. As Bedge was snapping pictures he noticed it had something in it’s mouth. We didn’t realized he had snagged 3 animals until we got home and pulled the pictures up on our computer. Awesome to see on our last night.

Schwabacher Landing offers a beautiful view of the Tetons. Each time we visit this area we always see a beaver and sometimes a badger. On this trip Bedge saw the badger and we all saw 2 beavers.

 We saw this handsome fella on the Snake River.

 We brought our ducky for the first time and took it out on String Lake. The lake was pretty crowded with kayaks, canoes and SUPs, however, it was still fun to cruise around the shallow lake.

This was taken just a few days before our 10 year anniversary, very close to where we were married.
Sappy, I know. 😉

 J-Man absolutely LOVED riding in Jackson. He said it was more beautiful and fun than Moab. Definitely a different kind of riding, for sure. He crushed the trails there making me one proud mama.

  1. Oh my goodness, it is beautiful! The picture of your little guy running through the Lupine, you may not have been able to bottle up the scent, but it really looks like it smells heavenly! I also loved the views, the sunset and water photos are my favorites. Thank you for sharing!
