When it became evident to us that a visit to Grand Tetons could in fact fit into our eastbound itinerary, we focused on Gros Ventre Campground. One of its charms is that all 300 campsites are first come first served. There’s no one here who made their reservation months and months ago. On top of that Sean & Christie of Long Long Honeymoon claim it’s their all time favorite campground. It’s our first time to approach Grand Teton National Park from the west, we actually drove through Teton Pass with its 10% grades. It was spectacular but in deference to Eric, our truck, we don’t plan on driving that particular route again. And it’s actually our first time to camp inside the park. On previous trips we’ve stayed in nearby Jackson Hole. But now we’re sitting near our T@B with just a tiny bit of sunset still in the sky, the memory of tonight’s ranger talk in our brains, and the young buck we saw on our talk back to our site, and trying to decide how much we want to explore other parts of the park tomorrow versus how much do we want to just stay and enjoy Gros Ventre Campground.
