The Grand Tetons are a mountain range just South of Yellowstone known for itâ€™s dramatic cliffs and views. Itâ€™s been someplace that Iâ€™ve always wanted to see, and Iâ€™m itching for some exercise, so I decide to find a nice day hike to take. One recommendation from a park ranger was to hike around Phelps lake, which I decide to do.
About 6 miles into the 8 mile hike, I come up to some people standing on a huge rock that goes into the lake. A young girl is at the edge of the rock and has been standing there for a while now, trying to gain the courage to jump. She doesnâ€™t seem like sheâ€™s going to go, so I try to set a good example and jump right in.
After the adrenaline rush and coolness of the water, I make way back to my bike, suit up, and make my way to Lorinâ€™s house in Jackson, WY.
