The Tetons are totally within the state of Wyoming. But, the western side is very near the Idaho border. The only roads that get into that area come from Idaho and are mainly just dirt roads once you get to Wyoming. Around here we call it the Idaho side of the Tetons. We like to camp there. We just spent a couple of days in a favorite spot. The weather was clear and hot, not great light for photography. But, many of you seem to enjoy the posts about my adventures so I will share a few even though they are nothing all that great.

We camped with my daughter, Amber, and her family. Our main activity was hiking up Darby Canyon. It was a pretty strenuous hike for Greg and I so I spent most of my energy trying to keep up with the kids, not taking photos.

#5 The kids enjoying the view. This is quite a steep hike with 1200 foot elevation gain in 1.5 miles.

#9 The creek we were camped next to. This was my best photo of the trip, although I should have used a tripod. I was out for a morning walk and didn't have the tripod with me.

Looks like a great place to camp and hike. Nice to have youngsters to keep you active! I see a Reflection 5th wheel. We have a Solitude. Love it!

Nice set, Terri. Looks like beautiful country. Good job keeping up with the kids. Might not be as fast but I'll bet you can out last them. I agree with others that last shot is magical.

Last image is great. I'm envious, I'd love to go there.

I'm sweating here and you got still snow. Love the photos - I really need to visit the Tetons.
