Waking up in Grand Teton National Park feels like an accomplishment. After desperately charging through Yellowstone so that we could get a campsite before they were all taken (there were only 6 out of 320 remaining) we were ready to take it easy.  Friends would be joining us in the afternoon and, with limited cell service, we didn’t want to get too wrapped up in the wild nooks and crannies of the park and miss a call.  So we scoped out the park.

Fields of wild sage brush stretch out to Jackson lake and the Grand Tetons.

High grasses rise along old homesteading land by the Tetons.

Now that we know the secret of Signal Mountain—it has a cell tower on the top—we knew where the best places were to go and maintain connectivity. When our friends called, we were ready to guide them to our camping spot, set up, and cook some tasty, tasty filet minion. It’s pretty great to show off my new campfire cooking skills.
