“It was like lying in a great solemn cathedral, far vaster and more beautiful than any built by the hand of man.” -Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States
A few years ago, before we moved to Czech Republic from the U.S., we drove from Cincinnati to the Grand Tetons National Park in Wyoming. It was a place my husband and I had always dreamed of going, and, given that tent-camping is almost free, we camped there during our stay.
We camped at two campgrounds within the Grand Tetons National Park, though it was the second one we tried that we loved: Lizard Creek. It sits at the north end of Jackson Lake, just along the border of the Lake. Though we didn’t see any lizards or a creek during the days we stayed, we did encounter a Grizzly. Yes. A Grizzly Bear. Luckily, he was more interested in digging insects from a tree trunk than from coming any closer than 50 meters from our tent. Never a dull moment for us on our camping trips, truly …
But, as President Theodore Roosevelt is quoted above after he camped in Yosemite, the Grand Teton Mountains made their impressive mark on me. I love it there.
