I wake up to temps in the upper 40’s. Its in the 50’s in the van. I just get up and get dressed and take Berkley for his morning walk. He does about 2 miles.
The sun is rising and it is casting a beautiful glow on the tetons in the distance.
My plan is to hike to Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point. It is a 6 mile hike. The trail is busy, I try to distance myself as much as I can and I keep my mask on the whole time. It is a little chilly to start, but the first climb had me all warmed up. That is one of the benefits of wearing a mask. It keeps your nose warm on chilly mornings.
The falls are beautiful and well worth the hike. I end up bailing on Inspiration Point. It is narrow, close to a ledge and to hard to stay away from people.
As I am nearing the end of the hike I cross a bridge there is a small bear in a bush along the shoreline eating berries. It is brown in color but I’m not sure what kind of bear it is.
I spend the rest of my time doing a scenic driving loop around the park. It takes a while to complete. There are so many pullouts and great views. It is hard not to stop at all of them.
I have an appt for the van in Lander, Wyoming tomorrow. Hopefully they can fix my AC.
