We set out further into the Grand Tetons and it was a beautiful, scenic drive through forest and open land with rivers running along the roadside at times. We went to the Visitor Center and spent time there while the kids worked on their Junior Ranger packets.
Today was our day to explore the area, and it seemed like many of the points of interest were to the south, so we headed down to the Jackson Hole area. We missed the chance to take a tram ride, but purchased tickets for the first run in the morning and will go on our way to our next stop.
We ended up in the bustling downtown area of Jackson Hole and searched for a place to eat. We waffled quite a bit about where to go, since it was a bit of a treat to go out for lunch as we have had sammies on the go or out on trails most days. We decided on a spot, but it turned out that there was a pretty limited menu so we got an appetizer of fried okra and a couple local beers and promised the kids we’d find another place.
After a bit more waffling, walking through more shops, and random axe throwing we landed at Café Genevieve. We ate outdoors and enjoyed some delicious candied bacon, and we all devoured our amazingly tasty meals. Andy even ordered me a glass of wine, and it was such a pleasant meal together!
On the way back to camp, we took a different path back to get a different view but hadn’t realized that the route is mostly a dirt road! We were glad that we weren’t pulling the camper, and it made us look more closely at our path to the tram ride for the morning!
