Grand Targhee

TetonsFromTopOn our last day in the Teton Valley, we drove back through Alta, Wyoming, and up to the Grand Targhee Resort. Our mission was to take the chairlift up to the top of the mountain and enjoy the incredible views of the Tetons above and the valley below.

Karen did a great job of laying aside her fear of heights and really enjoyed both the chairlift ride and the view from the top. There are those who take their mountain bikes up on the lift and ride the trails back down.
