the grand tetons.




We only spent a couple of hours in Grand Teton National Park, but it was worth the drive. The Tetons remind me of when we were little and a mountain landscape drawing consisted of a few pointy triangles with zig-zag snow caps. Living in Utah, I have a permanent beautiful mountain backdrop. But, the Tetons are something else entirely. They are so tall and jagged and, blue. Am I allowed to use the word "majestic" again?"

We pulled over at a lake towards the end of the day. There is something about lakes that pulls me out of body. I think it's the acoustics of such a large body of water that makes everything seem so still and silent. We watched a couple strip down to their swimsuit and jump in the freezing cold water for 2.2 seconds, and then we jumped back in the car to head to our nice warm hotel. I love our more rigorous adventures, but sometimes it feels great to head back to a comfy, clean hotel room and a shower.

So, that's it, kids. We packed up and came home before the end of the weekend to find Goldie on the verge of a mental breakdown, a messy house, and loads of laundry. Here's to reckless weekends!
