Grand Teton National Park...

I have to say, this is one of the parts of the trip I was most looking forward to. I had seen some beautiful photos by Ashley Ann Photography when they were on their big trip a few weeks prior, and I was blown away with the beauty. I couldn't wait to see it for myself!

While we enjoyed our tent camping in Badlands National Park, I wasn't too excited about the thought of camping in Grand Tetons and Yellowstone in what could easily be 30˚ temps. Six kids, 30˚, and a tent (not to mention having to cook in the cold) just wasn't going to work. After a little research, we found a place near Idaho Falls that rents travel trailers for a really reasonable price. After leaving my parents house in Bozeman, we headed down and picked up our trailer from OK Trailer. It was the perfect way to see the park and stay warm at the same time! It was a 26' Springdale and it was perfect for us!

It's amazing how much time preparing and eating food takes while you are on the road. At least we can have fun with it!
