Grand Teton and Yellowstone 2019

From August 12-16, 2019, we visited Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.

It was an elaborate family gathering, with the Blomquist gang driving in from Minnesota, Ellen and Rick pulling their new 5th-wheel trailer in from the west, and Miranda, Dick, and I flying in to Jackson Hole.

Our intrepid trip-planner was Gillian, who thought up lots of fun adventures that included hikes, a breakfast boat ride to Elk Island, a “Huck Finn” performance at the dinner theater, Old Faithful, and shopping.
