We made a vacation trip to Glacier National Park for some hiking, sightseeing and photography. On the way to Glacier we made a side visit to Yellowstone National Park. On our way home from Glacier we made another side trip and this one was to Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.

We arrived in Jackson, Wyoming early afternoon and immediately reserved a hotel room for the night. Then we went to the park to do some looking around. We did not enter the actual national park by but instead we explored the area just east of the park around the Gros Ventre River. This is the area where Mormon Row is and is a "plains" area where homesteaders settled in the 1890's.

We looked for wildlife, particularly moose but saw none. We drove around the area until about sundown. We returned the next morning before sunrise and parked in a spot in view of the river where there was a good chance we would see wildlife. Other than a couple of glances of elk there was no wildlife to see. Further driving around let us catch some small herd of Pronghorn Antelope. Later we saw one bull moose at a fair distance.

After entering the park proper and doing some sightseeing and photographing in the early afternoon we left and began our journey home.

Grand Teton Park is just south of Yellowstone. We have another album here containing the photos from that park.

An album of photos from our time spent at Glacier will be coming soon soon after this album is put on line.
