I got up early this morning to race down to the lakeside to watch the sun come up and illuminate the Tetons and to get photos of their salmon pink reflections in the water. I did another Lake hike today. A little shorter in distance, but higher altitude that really challenged me and made me pretty relieved to get the lake over look for lunch.
I stayed up to watch the sunset again over the Tetons. Something about these Tetons I keep talking about - they are absolutely deadly. They are so magnificent in their beauty that driving the road that run parallel to them is a risk. It is very difficult to avoid being mesmerised and totally transfixed by them.
My two days in the Tetons are now over and tomorrow morning I will be getting up to Yellowstone National Park, approximately two hours north of where I am at the moment.
