Jackson Hole

We continued our trip to Jackson Hole. It was great, the Grand Tetons were indeed grand. We drove in just at 4pm and picked up my sister at the airport. It was great that we were there just after the plane landed. Coordinating itineraries from both of our trips could not have been any smoother.
We checked in to the Sundance Inn. It is a great Mom and Pop establishment that is perfect when you want to be right downtown. The beds were great and the inn was very clean. Soon after we checked in we dressed for hiking in 3 feet of snow and took out the snowshoes. We stepped on to the trail and the first thing we saw was a moose. A real live moose standing just at the trailhead of Cache Creek. We took a few pictures, and other people walked by without even noticing it. It was a nice acclimation hike, we were out there for about an hour.
Dinner Saturday night was the best mexican food I had ever eaten. We went to The Merry Piglet and if you are ever in Jackson Hole it is a must. The fajitas were out of this world, and the guacamole too. Highly recommended.

Sunday was Easter and we could not have asked for better weather. The sky was bright blue and the temperture was nearly 40 degrees. We took a hike looking for Two Ocean Lake, but we did not find it. We did have a nice time and ate lunch on the trail. One of the things that I will always remember is the quiet. We sat for a few minutes not talking, but just listening to how quiet it was out there. With the snow dampening the sounds, it was the most incredible silence I had ever heard.

It was a great time, and we had to get ready to go. In the morning we were back to the highway headed for Yellowstone's North Entrance in Gardiner, MT.
