July 2 Grand Tetons Camping - Colter Bay
We woke to a warm day, but a heavy, heavy dew. It was like a southern dew. We had to let our tents dry a while in the warm western air. We cooked pancakes and enjoyed the view of the Tetons. We said sad a good-bye to the Dixons as they head back to Idaho. We drove 47 miles up to Colter Bay. We set up camp, took a shower, and washed clothes – we now feel better. While relaxing in the campsite, a cinnamon colored bear came by. He was looking for food, but didn’t find any. It was fun to see a bear from a distance. The families around us are from TN too. We went to the Marina and visited Jackson Lake -- what a beautiful sunset. Ending the day with a campfire and stories, huddled in our sweatshirts as the temperature dipped below 40 degrees. It won’t be like this in two weeks when we’re back in Franklin!
