James' visit - Day 1

I left Mammoth at 4:45 a.m. There was a black bear along the road near Tower Falls, but there wasn't enough daylight to get a good picture. I reached the South entrance of the park at 7:16 a.m. Just outside the park, the signs below were along the side of the road. I thought they were funny, so I turned around to snap pictures of them!

Then I entered into Grand Teton National Park, and caught a glimpse of the Tetons and Jackson Lake:

I arrived at Jackson Airport around 9:00 or so. I had to wait for an hour and a half for his flight to arrive, but I didn't mind because I could watch planes taking off and landing with the Tetons as a backdrop. James' flight arrived around 10:20:

I was so glad to see him! We went to Jackson and checked into The Painted Buffalo hotel. Then, we got lunch at Mountain High Pizzia Pie. After shopping, we went to Grand Teton National Park.

The way this tree was growing it looked like a mini football goal post:

The wildflowers made a pretty landscape:

We went back to the hotel and I got to watch t.v. for the first time in 2 1/2 months!!!!
