Day Eighteen: Laramie to Colter Bay (Grand Tetons)
Up early again and off to Grand Tetons National Park. We did see antelope today - several outside Rawlins, where we got off the interstate, and one that ran down a hill, across the highway, and up the hill on the other side. He was gorgeous - but I was too busy staring to even try to take a picture. But mostly the landscape was the big draw
The landscape is not very different to start with:
These fences must be for blocking drifting snow.
Another huge wind farm
But it begins to change
Red rocks, quite dramatic
We drove through part of the Wind River reservation
This spectacular butte is called Crowheart Butte
More red rocks
And some striped ones.
First glimpse of the Grand Tetons
Wildlife! Whoo-hoo! Yes, I got the ground squirrel's picture
Entering the park
The mountains over the lake
A couple of very tamish deer that wandered through the cabin area
