Labor Day Trip to Grand Teton National Park

We visited Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming over the Labor Day weekend. In lieu of a crafting post, my husband Bill is posting some pictures from our trip.

Hi all, hope you had a great weekend. Here's a few photos from our trip.

This is Mount Moran at Oxbow Bend. It is 12,605' feet tall. (3,843m)

Linda navigated us to some rustic buildings in an area known as Mormon Row. The buildings were built by early homesteaders beginning in the 1890s.

The whole area is about about 6 or 7 buildings spread out over a mile. Each one is gorgeous photo opportunity. The tallest mountain in the picture is Grand Teton at 13.776 feet tall. (4,199m)

We traveled through Yellowstone as well. The elk rut is just starting and this fellow has already captured himself a harem on the lawns of the Mammoth hotel and other buildings. His antler points are called 6x7, which indicates he is about 13 years old and in prime condition.

This fellow is only 6x5 and was about a mile down hill, biding his time. As the rut progresses, he will probably attempt to confront the one above. You might notice a bump on his nose. A ranger told me he got the bump by ramming a passenger van when he was two years old.

Thanks for visiting and come back Friday for Linda's Fab Five Friday!
