Shoshone Falls and the Grand Tetons
Well, today was outstanding. We left Twin Falls early this morning and went just a few miles to Shoshone Falls. What a treat those were, the Snake River runs over these wonderful cliffs, in fact the fall further by 24 ft than Niagara Falls and are called the Niagara Falls of the West. We left there and headed for Jackson Hole, Wyoming, going thru wonderful different landscapes. Jill (our GPS) wanted to take us over Grand Teton Pass instead of where AAA had us going. We went Jill’s route and it couldn’t have better, the sights were outstanding and we went over the pass at nearly 9000 ft. During our drive up we passed what must have been a car club doing Grand Teton, because we ran into four of them along the way, all cars from the twenties and thirties. On arriving in Jackson we checked into our hotel and head to the Tetons. The views were outstanding and we seen deer, elk and buffalo. We did a large circle and returned to our hotel about six. I can’t imagine a day being any better, but tomorrow we head to Yellowstone and all it has to offer.
