Maysa’s Blog Entry-Jul 13 #NatlParkService Visit to Grand Tetons!
Today we hiked around Jenny Lake in the Grand Teton. It was about a 9 mile loop. the sights were beautiful. The Hidden Falls was my favorite because I love the sound of waterfalls and the cool wind that the waterfall gives off. The hike to the top of the falls was nice and shaded, too. While we were there we met another group of cyclists. They were biking for cancer (4K for Cancer). It was cool talking to them.
After visiting the falls we started to hike back down towards the lake. It took us about an hour and a half to reach where we were going to stop for lunch. By the time we got there big cumulonimbus clouds had formed and the wind picked up. Because we were hiking we decided to wait out the storm which took about an hour. With no more rain in sight we hightailed it back to the van. Bob, Kevin and my mom treated us to burgers and fries afterwards for dinner; it was pretty good.
I hope that in the coming years I can revisit the Grand Tetons and surrounding areas. I’m glad that I came on this trip because of all the beautiful scenery and the chance to meet and get to know new people. Thank you to all the people that helped make this trip possible for us all! It has been truly an amazing adventure.
