In early September, 1999, we spent 2 weeks hiking in the mountains of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Dennis, Margie, David, and Marianne drove out from Ohio the first week. I only had one week, so I flew in the second week.
The hiking in the canyons of the Tetons was really beautiful. During the second week, we attempted to climb the Grand Teton. We backpacked up to the Moraine campground, just below the 'Lower Saddle' on the mountain, where we camped in a boulder field.
Early the next morning, David, Dennis, and I set out for the summit. The weather was cool, but crystal clear. The climbing was great. After getting off-trail on the Owen-Spaulding route, we eventually made it to the 'Upper Saddle', too late for a summit attempt. The view was spectacular.
We returned to our camp late that afternoon for a well-deserved dinner of MRE's. After another cool and clear night on the mountain, we returned to the valley below. It was a fine vacation in beautiful Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
