Grand Teton National Park
Mile 6730 to Mile 9630
WP 90 to WP119
Except for a few stops along the way the trip to the east coast was a straight run but first there was the Grand Teton National Park. We have been here before. 3 times. It is one of those places that draws you back & is a highlight of any western mountain road trip. The scenery is that stunning.

Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival WP 112
In a sea of tents, we are way in the back.
Something like 30,000 attend this 4 day festival.
There are those who make themselves right at home.
This hayfield went from nothing to this in less than one day. To the left of the large tent our trailer, I think, can be barely picked out.
So, that is it. From here it was a day & a bit worth of driving back to MD with a short stop in Delaware for some tax free shopping & another trip around the country is history.
