We just spent as amazing week in Jackson Hole, Wyoming! Let me start from the beginning - and beware, there will be LOTS of pictures. (To see all of them, refer to Facebook.)
Monday night we left with Collin and traveled to Cory's families ranch. It sits right on the Idaho/Wyoming border. The first thing on our agenda for the night was to get some "Wyoming style" fireworks and set them off. We bought all kinds of awesome ones but these were by far my favorite:
Tuesday we woke up an hour later than planned at headed off to Jackson. We forgot to pack food so we decided to stop in the first town that was offering breakfast. That town was Afton, Wyoming. Wow, what an experience we had. It was straight out of a movie. We found a little diner that was open for breakfast and headed in. . . You know on movies set in a small town where someone walks into a diner and everyone stops and stares at them because it's painfully obvious that they aren't from that town and don't belong? We now know EXACTLY how that feels. We stepped into this tiny dinner that was set up with a bar by the door and had tables behind it. Honest and true ranchers filled the tables in their manure covered boots and wranglers telling hunting stories and cussing up a storm. There was one waitress with huge bangs and she walked around with a coffee pot visiting with the locals. Everyone who came in knew each other. We stuck out like a sore thumb. But, regardless of the awkward feeling, we had an amazing breakfast! It was so good! After our breakfast adventure we slowly made our way to Colter Bay where my parents were camped. After setting up our tent we headed down to the marina store and got ice cream:
Cory's face in this picture is so funny!!
Wednesday Cory woke up early and went fishing. I also went for a run. If I could have scenery like that every day, I'd never stop running lol. It was awesome. Anyway, my family decided to drive around and see all the sites and have a picnic for the majority of the morning. We went to a popular turnout where you can see all the Grand Tetons:
Thursday we went and hiked to Hidden Falls. It was really hot but we made and the falls are so gorgeous! Cory and I really love the Teton area. We'd live there if we could!
Today we spent the morning at String Lake. The water was freezing, but there were tons of people there swimming. We forgot our swim suits so all we could do was wade:
