Grand Teton-Take Two

We woke up Sunday morning to a much prettier day than the day before. We packed up all of our stuff and checked our of our lovely hotel. We were suppose to drive home but I wanted to drive through Grand Teton again since we didn't see much the day before due to bad weather. 

As we were driving through an area we hadn't been before we saw a bunch of cars off the side of the road. If it weren't for those people we wouldn't think any animals lived in the forest. Luckily they have better eyes than we do. We saw a bunch of excited onlookers and knew something good much be just up the hill. Sure enough it was this darling black bear. Emma wanted to run up and snuggle with it. One of the other people suggested to her that that wouldn't be a very good idea. No kidding? 

While we were watching the bear I spotted this gorgeous bird. I couldn't resist snapping some pictures of it. 

We continued through the park and saw some more of the of the beautiful world that has been created for our enjoyment.

There were a lot of Canadian Geese enjoying the warmer day.

We had spent enough time in the park. We still had a 5-6 hour drive ahead of us. We needed to start for home. I know I didn't want to leave but we had to. Our drive back was gorgeous too. We went a different way out of Jackson and it was much prettier than how we came in. These pictures were snapped out of the window while driving down the road.

I love autumn. I am so thankful for the beauty of this earth and the opportunity that we have to travel and show it to our children. It was a wonderful little getaway.
