Up to Grand Teton National Park, connected directly with Yellowstone. And there is a reason for: to achieve the growth of wildlife population. Yellowstone is big but animals do not understand borders and limits… so around the world’s famous National Park you will find Glacier National Park Conservancy in the north, at the east and west different national forests and at the south Teton National Park. This last has big lakes and meadow lands, ideal for herbivores such a moose and elk. We decided to make a hike around Jenny Lake, a fifteen km walk looking for the Hidden Falls, on a small trail with stunning view over the lake and Mont Teton, it is just what we need: burning American calories… with pleasure! Ground squirrels and marmots are running the track just in front of us. Prepared with bear bell and “the motherload of all” bear sprays we wonder why they run away from us. Some falcons and red tailed eagles are floating above us picking out their lunch.
Although we didn’t even see a bear, all around there was the sign: Warning be bear aware!
…and this is what we read all over the information leaflets. O_O
Tired we reach the car and drive to Jackson Hole, the first town out of the park.
