This past week while here in Jackson waiting to go do a long hike in the Teton Wilderness, my hiking friend and I went on a couple of day hike.

Looking back at Jackson Hole as we go down another way. The southern teton range is where the snow is.

On a second dayhike the next day we hiked up to the top of Snow King Mountain. This is the view from a 3rd of the way up. The Grand Teton is visable on the right covered by recent snow

Look fantastic, Gary! 

I am truly envious of getting to spend 28 days in the backcountry! Someday I will be back out there and spend at least a week on the trail. Three days on my last trip were just a teaser, and not nearly enough :)
