Nature's Rapture

"There is pleasure in the pathless woods,

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,

There is society, where none intrudes,

By the deep sea, and music in its roar:

I love not man the less, but Nature more..."

~ Lord Byron

 

Having arrived in Grand Teton National Park this spring, I was looking forward to visiting one of my favorite spots along Jenny Lake which is accessed via the Jenny Lake Loop Drive. But upon arriving there, we discovered that the road was shut down for some major repairs. Not to be deterred, we decided to head to the South Shore entrance...parked the car; packed some water and snacks; and hiked to our favorite spot....the best part of this little outing was the fact that we didn't have to contend with any crowds because they were all headed in the opposite direction to visit Inspiration Point (which we did the day before). Walking along through the woods, we were treated to view after view of Jenny Lake and the surrounding Tetons peaks framed so nicely by Mother Nature :-)

 

Have a great Wednesday....many thanks & appreciation for all your visits & comments!!!!
