Day 4

“…hula hooping was much easier as a kid.”

View east from the western slope of the Tetons.

Too much to write about Days 2 and 3 and not enough time, so here’s the Day 4 update. It’s only 3 p.m., but it’s already a great day. Steve and I got up early and hit the trails around 8:30. We headed north from Teton Village on the Valley Trail. After a half mile climb we were treated to some great rolling single track. Not too many spectacular vista, but a wonderful forest to run through. Near the turn around we saw a doe with two fawns. We treated ourselves to beer and lunch at the Snake River Brewing Co. I love their OB-1, an organic ale, and the spicy peanut chicken with tofu substituted for chicken. Yum. The Kolner I drank was also tasty. I’m in a short break before heading out to the Jackson Hole Music Festival where Los Lonely Boys are playing.

Los Lonely Boys put on a decent show. Also, hula hooping was much easier as a kid.
