Since we were moving farther away from Yellowstone, Kyle wanted to go really badly. At first I was against it because we were moving across the state! But he said he would work really hard (which he did!) if we could go. So I gave in :) I love Yellowstone, too. We left on Tuesday, and came back on Friday (the week before we moved). We also had a groupon we had purchased for a river rafting trip in Jackson, so we wanted to make sure we used that.
So we drove to Jackson on Tuesday, got our tent set up and spent the afternoon/evening hiking around Jenny Lake.

Wednesday we got up, packed up our things and headed to Jackson. We went on a 2.5 hour raft trip, which was so fun. We did the "gentle" float and had a great time. We had a great guide, and a cute family of four from Utah in our raft with us.
|It was really pleasant that day, and so pretty!|
|Me on the raft!|
|We saw quite a few bald eagles - and this adolescent one was so close to us!|

That afternoon we drove up to Yellowstone, where we stayed two more nights until coming home.

|I believe that was an elk.|

As you can imagine, we had a great time! We really enjoy camping, and Yellowstone! This is the 3rd time we've been since we've been married! Now, next summer we'll have to explore Glacier!
