We got up today at 6AM and drove down to Grand Teton.  On the road between Yellowstone South Entrance and Grand Teton Colter Bay Visitor Center, we spotted a Grizzly bear!!  It was soooo surreal!

We stopped at Colter Bay Visitor Center to get some tourist information and booked a snake river float trip for the next morning. 

We followed the driving tour and stopped at many viewpoints and overlooks to take pictures.  Jackson Lake Dam was picturesque.  

We also stopped at South Jenny Lake, took the shuttle boat across the lake, and hiked half a mile to Hidden Falls. 

We drove to Antelope Flats Road and took some more pictures with old ranches in the background. 

We headed back to the Yellowstone park in the early afternoon and there were many more cars on the road for the labor day weekend. On the way to the West Thumb Geyser, it started to rain for a few minutes.  Luckily when we arrived at West Thumb Geyser Basin, it was sunny again. 

The thunderstorm across the Yellowstone lake provided an amazing backdrop. 

The contrast of the color was so dramatic.  Some of the scenery looked almost like white sand beach in the Caribbean. 

After the West Thumb Geyser Basin, we headed back to the Lake Village and took more pictures on the road.  This picture reminded us of a motu in Bora Bora.

We had dinner at the Lake lodge cafeteria and hung out in the lodge drinking wine and playing cards in the evening.
