The weekend of 16 Sep 11, my parents came out here for their first-ever trip to the Rocky

Mountains.  Knowing they had never been here, Tracy and I had worked on what we hoped

would be a really good trip.  After work on Friday, we took the long way to Pinedale, WY, over

Monte Cristo in order to give them an early taste of the mountains.  We got to Pinedale late on

Friday, and then got up early on Saturday to head to Green River Lakes in the Wind River

Range.  My parents were first amazed by the hot spring on the road to the lakes, and then

they just loved the Winds once they got a good look at them.  We hiked around a little at the

lakes, and then headed out towards the Tetons.  Once in the Tetons, we hiked around at

Mormon Row, and then we hiked out to Leigh Lake.  After enjoying Leigh Lake, we drove

around more looking for wildlife, and coming up strangely empty-handed.  Then we headed

back into Jackson for dinner, and then drove to Colter Bay for a night in one of the cabins.

The cabin was pretty nice, even though it was a crowded area.

On Sunday we got up and drove into Yellowstone.  We checked out Hayden Valley, the

Yellowstone Falls, and the Lamar Valley.  Once again, we didn't see much wildlife.  We

continued out of the Park to Cooke City, MT, and then drove up over the Beartooth Highway.

As I've always said, this road is one of the most beautiful in the country, and I think they

enjoyed it.  Afterwards, we drove back to Cook City for the night.  On Monday we drove back

into the Park and checked out Old Faithful and the Upper Geyser Basin.  After finishing up

there, we headed back out to West Yellowstone and on back home.

We had a great time showing my parents the Rockies.  They said they enjoyed it, so I hope to

convince them to come back so we can show them Colorado!
