Grand Teton National Park

I Love Grand Teton National Park! My parents see the top of the Grand Teton from their back door! What an amazing mountain range! It catches so much snow that the ski/snowboarding resort up there has the deepest powder I think in the United States!

 In the past week, we’ve seen some pretty interesting weather here in the Tetons. We’ve had fresh snow, heavy rain, hail, thunderstorms, and, of course, plenty of sunshine. It just goes to show that you should always be prepared for any type of weather, any time of year, when you’re in the mountains.

Have you seen any of these weather events lately where you live?

Triple Crown of Hiking – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


PCT at Hwy 79 Warner Hotsprings

The Triple Crown of Hiking informally refers to the three major U.S. long distance hiking trails:

The total length of the three trails is about 7,900 miles (12,700 km); vertical gain is more than 1,000,000 feet (300,000 m) (190 miles). A total of 22 states are visited if the three trails are completed[4] The American Long Distance Hiking Association – West (ALDA-WEST) is the only organization that recognizes this hiking feat. At the ALDHA-West Gathering, held each fall, the Triple Crown honorees are recognized and awarded plaques noting their achievement. As of October 2011, 155 hikers have been designated Triple Crowners. [5]
