This summer while at my mom's house I found my baby book. There was a section called "My Visits and Trips" and I learned that my 6th trip, when I was 8 months old, was to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons.
In May 2014 I went to Jackson for a work conference, I know how lucky. A a couple of friends came up to explore Yellowstone and the Tetons for a week afterwards. Do you think your heart can remember? I felt like I was connected to the place in a way I hadn't felt before. I felt alive with the beauty and world around me.

What an amazing trip. I loved every minute of it.
So when my nephew was getting married in October 2017 I talked to @jarvie about flying into Salt Lake and we would drive to Idaho via Jackson, Wyoming. I am so glad we did. That same feeling of "at homeness" and awe permeated my trip. I love the snow and to get the fall colors and snow together were magical.
Choosing one picture of a place I feel so connected to was a hard choice . This one brings all the elements of the Tetons and my feelings for it together.
