Mooose at Jackson Hole
Looking West: We hiked around Jenny Lake today and were greeted by several of the natives, including bear, marmot, ground squirrels, and moose. This moose calf was taking a break while his mom grazed nearby in the forest.

 

Our investigation of glaciers began in the crisp morning air surrounding Jackson Lake. The reflection of the Teton Mountain Range provided quite the distraction as we reviewed today’s guiding questions. We traveled around a large basin, referred to as Jackson Hole. We observed the various landforms created by several glaciers that carved this landscape during the glacial and interglacial episodes of previous Ice Age events. We finished our day with a hike to the Hidden Waterfalls on the other west of Jenny Lake.
