Day 43 - Grand Tetons, Jackson, and Idaho Falls

Today we checked out of our hotel, grabbed a sandwich for lunch in West Yellowstone, then headed back through Yellowstone on our way to the Grand Tetons. On our way through Yellowstone it started to rain hard and even hailed.

Outside the south entrance of Yellowstone, for miles, the road is unpaved, as there is extensive road construction going on. This was our view for most of the way.
We eventually go to the Tetons NP, where it was still raining. It rained throughout our drive through but cleared up every now and then.

After the Tetons, we headed for Jackson, WY and saw the antler arches in the town square.
It was pouring so we didn't stop, instead heading over the Teton Pass to Idaho. Once we crossed the border to Idaho, the sun came out!

Drove to our stop for the night, Idaho Falls. After checking into our hotel, we walked right across the street to see the Idaho Falls, a man-made falls for a hydroelectric system.
We took a stroll along the walkway for a bit, then headed back to the hotel to head out for dinner. Along the way, we spotted this guy sunning himself. What started a rainy and cold day, ended up a bright sunshiny day.

Tomorrow, Salt Lake City.
