Tuesday morning brought us straight to the Grand Teton National Park, just south of Yellowstone. We had originally planned to camp in Yellowstone, but after some recommendations, we chose the less popular (but perhaps more beautiful) Grand Tetons. We set up camp, and hiked up to Lunch Tree Hill. As the story goes, John D. Rockefeller, Jr. (on one of his many trips to the Yellowstone area) hiked to the top of the hill for lunch, and after seeing the view of the Grand Tetons, demanded it become a protected national park, as well. Thank you, John D. Rockefeller, Jr.!
We made it to sleep last night, but the low temperatures (37 degrees!) made it hard to sleep late. By 6:45am this morning, we were packed up (and bundled up!) and headed north to see Yellowstone at sunrise.
On our way out, we stumbled upon a few bison grazing by the road.
The most random store, ever.
We ate dinner at Diamond Lil's - a sports bar above The Midnight Star Casino, owned by the one and only Kevin Costner. The food was mediocre, but the Kevin Costner movie memorabilia collection was outstanding.
