Done with Mormon Row we drove to a place called Menors Ferry Historic District. This was an old ferry passing the Snake River.


 But we went to the right and followed the river upwards. And soon enough we spotted a moose cow with a young. Quite hard to see among the high vegetation but still. They did not seem worried about our presence as after a while they laid down to rest. And we left the place not to disturb them further.






In the location there was also shops and other facilities. So some of us took the opportunity to have a cup of coffee at Dornans.

Well, I was windowshopping at Craig Thomas Discovery and visitor center, and figured it is always nice to know that you too are on the trip. So, a selfie in the window to the shop proves it and shares a bit of the surrounding as well. One of my companions and then Teton Range.



Next stop was close to Teton Village where a smaller river crossed the road we were travelling.


On the mountain were a Mountain Resort with people paragliding down the mountain side.


Close to Wilson Boat ramp we found a nice place for lunch. And just a short path down to the Snake River and the Teton Range.


After our late lunch we drove east and passed through Jackson Hole and then all the way up to Colter Bay and the motell. We had a short brake before we headed out again.

We met again at 16.30 for a sunset tour and late dinner at Signal Mountain Lodge.

Late sun shines on the treetops.
