This summer's adventure started 8/11. First stop, St. George UT. Our goal was to play golf at Wolf Creek (actually in Mesquite NV) - some steps above our skill set but one of those challenges we just needed to try. Every hole is stunning.
Next stop – Jackson Hole. We rented a condo for 2 weeks during which time we hiked the Tetons National Park and Yellowstone National Park, did some bike rides, played a few rounds of golf, and did a 12 mile float fly fishing trip down the Snake River (yep – caught some trout). Life coincidence – we met up with a friends from a prior trip, Denny & Linda, who just happened to be starting a tour of the area the day we arrived!
Here's a photographic summary.

STORM BREWING - TIME TO GO!
Good buddies from Denver, Ellen and Jeff , joined us for a few days. Unfortunately, there was a major fire in theTetons throwing heavy smoke and ash all over the area, causing some campgrounds evacuations and road closures! We toughed out one hike and called it quits on outdoor activities. These last few shots are from our final hiking day in Jackson Hole. We're bailing a little early to get away from the heavy smoke. Next stop – Park City UT.
