As you may have guessed, my cousin is a great tour guide. If she ever visits me in Florida I won’t have nearly the number of places to take her for adventures. I don’t get to sit with my computer online and plugged in like I did at home, so later I will notice pictures I meant to include in a post but didn’t. Or I will think of something I meant to say about a photo after I already posted it. Like this one from the ski resort.
That’s a little bit of snow nestled in a crevice there in the center. a couple of Texas kids climbed down to some snow a lot closer to the trail than that one, and took great delight in throwing snowballs at their parents. Of course they were excited, and therefore scaring me half to death, but their parents said that all they wanted to do on this trip was to see snow. I also missed some other details from the resort.
And there was a hike with Mary the day before also.
This is musk thistle, and it’s invasive. Mary wondered if they’d given up on getting rid of it because we’ve seen it everywhere we’ve been.
And if you ever find yourself heading from Jackson to the Grand Targhee ski resort you will pass through the town of Victor, ID, where it would behoove you to stop at the soda shop for a ‘world famous’ huckleberry milk shake. Of course I got one, and yes it was good.
See the guy in the background drinking his own huckleberry milk shake? He recommended it and then asked if I liked it and of course I told him I did. He said that he comes over the Teton Pass just to get his favorite milk shake! Now that’s a fan!
The feature photo is from the morning drive on the day of this hike with Mary. It had stormed the night before and we didn’t expect much from the day. But as I drove to Jackson the sky was beginning to show some promise. It was hard to believe that those huge mountains were totally hidden when I started driving, and then they began to peek through. And another glorious day ensued…
