Wyoming and Montana, two of our most scenic and inspiring states!

Boardwalk around Firehole Lake in Yellowstone provides up-close thermal viewing!

The tram at Jackson Hole Ski Resort will whisk visitors from valley to 10,100 feet in 14 minutes!
Old Faithful Geyser, erupting every 60 to 90 minutes, never ceases to amaze visitors!
The Grand Teton frames a herd of bison in Grant Teton National Park (yes, snows on the peaks in early summer can make for cold nights!).

Wyoming and Montana, two of our most favorite destinations!   Today I want to whet your appetite with a few photos to inspire your creative travel instincts. With national treasures like Grand Teton, Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks – if you have not visited, it is time! Summer can be busy in both the Tetons and Yellowstone (Glacier a bit less crowded) - if you can travel before Memorial day or after Labor Day, you’ll find the parks much less crowded.  Should you plan to travel during the summer months, you’ll find the weather more inviting – just plan to book carefully since lodging or camping on short notice can be hard to find.

My blog last Friday featured Yellowstone National Park, and this Friday’s edition shares the Grand Teton highlights.  So, get out that atlas and your calendar and start making plans!
