The journey so far, with today’s ride in blue

The day before…

Our off day in Jackson should have been a highlight but it was not. Both Dave and I were pretty bad off with stomach issues and fatigue. We did manage to get out and get massages, which was absolutely amazing. If you are ever in Jackson, make an appointment at Olga’s Day Spa.


Remarkably, we both woke up feeling pretty good and both decided to give it a go. I am glad we did because this ride was one of the most incredible, amazing bicycle rides I have ever been on. I will do my best to describe it but I don’t think there are words that can adequately capture the overwhelming majesty of the Tetons and what it was like to ride the length of the range. One of my goals for these adventure trips is to feel small and that was never more true than today.

Heading out for the day
Riding over the Snake River between Wilson and Jackson, looking at the Teton Range
Riding the Teton bike path was beyond imagination
Dave and I posing with Teton backdrops
Obligatory national park sign selfie
Dave and I in action
These action shots really show the awesome scale of the Tetons
Grand Teton Natonal Park has its share of wildlife. We debated and settled on this being a pronghorn.
It’s hard to find the words, or even capture a picture, to describe the majesty of the Tetons
Dave climbing up to the continental divide
Finally to the top
Cruising down the eastern slope. Imagine coming around the corner to see this. Breaktaking.
As we descended into DuBois, the landscape changed dramatically
