Saturday, July 30th
Jenny Lake

In the morning, we woke up and drove down to Jenny Lake, then hiked around the lake.

After the hike, we got some ice cream from the Jenny Lake store. After a brief stop at Colter Bay for some more stove fuel, we returned to our campground. Our campground was just a little wet from the earlier rain, and it continued to rain lightly on and off while we had dinner. Still, we managed to start a campfire and enjoy it before we drove back to Colter Bay for a 9pm ranger program. One of the things the kids have to do for their junior ranger booklets is attend a ranger program and have them signed. This would be our last opportunity to attend a program on this trip.

Tonight's program was on pictures. The ranger showed a famous picture of the Tetons over the Snake River, taken by Ansel Adams. He explained that at the time the picture was taken, the bottom half of the picture was actually not protected (not part of the national park). He ended the talk by encouraging us to take pictures and share them with our friends, showing the beautiful places that need to be protected.
