2012 Western Road Trip: Early Morning Drive

6 Flares 6 Flares ×

You read that correctly – I’m still talking about our 2012 road trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. I never finished telling that trip’s stories, and I don’t want to move on to our most recent trip without wrapping it up. Oops!

When we left off, we had arrived in Grand Teton National Park and had done a little exploring of the park: stopped at a visitor center, got settled into our cabin, and drove out to Mormon Row to take pictures.

We woke up bright and early for our first full day in Grand Teton. We immediately changed and headed out the door, hoping to take some good morning shots of the mountains. We decided to drive up to the summit of Signal Mountain, a small peak (7,720 feet above sea level) in the middle of the valley. We made a good choice.

But what is a day in a national park without wildlife to kick it off? Good morning, Mr. Moose!

Just doin’ what I gotta do.

We enjoyed the view from the top of Signal Mountain all by ourselves…almost. When we arrived to the parking area, there was one other vehicle and group of four guys who were just about to leave. Where were they from? Wisconsin. What are the odds?

After Signal Mountain, we drove to a few different turn-outs to snap more pictures. Seriously, the scenery in Grand Teton is so incredibly beautiful and seems almost surreal. I loved it!

And pictures will never do it justice.

After our drive, it was back to the cabin to clean up and figure out what to do with the rest of our day. But not before one more moose visit.

Grand Teton is so cool!

      Moose are super huge! I was shocked when we spotted our first moose. I had heard they were big, but I had no idea. They’re really cool to see in person.
