After a good night's rest and breakfast we left for Jackson Hole, Wyoming. This was a trip to view the southwest section of Yellowstone Park. We found many interesting places to stop and visit.
We were able to see Isa Lake which was at the Continental Divide as well as Lewis Lake. This took us into the Rockefeller Parkway and Grand Teton National Park as we headed south.
By lunch time we were able to reach Jackson Lake Lodge, where we were able to roam around and eat lunch on our own.
Following this we traveled with the Teton mountains in view, as well as seeing Jenny Lake, Moose Junction and the Chapel of Transfiguration. I gave a good search in the churchyard for burial spots, but found none.
One interesting place to visit was the Menor's Ferry Historic District. There was the church mentioned above plus the Ferry which was on the Snake River, much to our amazement. It included the old farm house, store and the ferry.
We later checked into our new home for the night on the north edge of Jackson, then on to visit the area further.
Following this we drove into town for shopping at which time I visited the Aspen Cemetery, where I was able to read a small section of it. Dave drove the bus to the bottom of the hill and waited for me while the others shopped. We picked them up on one corner of the park.
This was a very enjoyable evening. The family who runs it are also the program. It was the really good old time country type music along with a wonderful yodeler and much humor.
We were back to our rooms that night in the Flat Creek Inn of Jackson Hole a bit later than usual. To bed early if possible so we can be brighteyed and bushytailed for tomorrow's trip.
