Tetons Weekend!

Cathleen, Holly and I headed to the Tetons for our weekend. This was a last minute decision, so our options for lodging were somewhat limited. We reserved a tent cabin at Colter Bay Village in Grand Teton National Park. None of us knew what to expect, but I was excited about our little adventure!

Tent Cabin: Canvas wall with a window that opened and closed via a zipper, a screen door with a very technical lock system consisting of a hook and latch, tin roof, and a woodstove for the heat source.

I think Cathleen was a little anxious about what she would find inside...

...ah, yes! Jail-style bunk beds!!! Cathleen would later refer to this cabin as jail!!!

After checking out our cabin, we headed to Jackson. We browsed some of the shops.

Two of the greatest in American history: Cathleen and Ben Franklin.
I'll always remember this trip to Jackson for many reasons, but one of them is because I tried Thai food for the first time. Teton Thai restaurant was recommended to us. It was a great atmosphere with all the tables on an open-air deck.

I stayed on the safe side and ordered Pad Thai. It was delicious and I'm an fan of Thai food!

We had a fun evening back at the cabin. It was pretty chilly so we built a fire in the woodstove, climbed in our bunks, and listened to Holly tell us entertaining bedtime stories from her adventures of living, dating, and performing in NYC and Chicago!
The next morning, we woke to rain on the tin roof. We ate breakfast sitting on the dock at Colter Bay.
