... and marveled at some of their weights. We really enjoy watching the movies about the particular National Park we are visiting and didn't want to miss the one about Teton. We have found it is a good way for all of us to learn about the park and the movies are usually very well done so everyone pays attention. It was interesting to learn about the different seasons at Teton and how they affect the animals.
... emerged into an eerie, barren, brown landscape. The eerie feeling was borne of the significant haze clouding our view in all directions. We had been told before leaving that there was a fire in Montana over 70 miles away, and that any haze we would see would most likely be because of this. As we continued to hike up the gradual slope, the scenery became more and more reminiscent of Tatooine (Star Wars, anyone?), being very rocky, full of steep ...

The room was clean, warm and big. I had some elk stew over biscuits that was delicious. Great conversation with another patron and the server behind the bar. Huge selection of beers. I had a hard time connecting on my phone to service. I use Sprint. I was told Verizon was better.
