The Grand Tetons are a mountain range just South of Yellowstone known for it’s dramatic cliffs and views. It’s been someplace that I’ve always wanted to see, and I’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 doesn’t seem like she’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 Lorin’s house in Jackson, WY.
