Last weekend we went on a trip to the Tetons. Basically all we knew was that we were hoping to get a backcountry camping permit, and hopefully we could get canoes to take us there. So we loaded five people’s worth of gear (me, Colton, Bree, Ben, and our new friend Marcus) into my dad’s Land Cruiser and left on Thursday evening. We left fairly late in the day, so half of our drive was in the dark.
I’ve mentioned the Elephant Rock trail before, but Colton and I were looking for a new trail nearby. After some googling, we found a trail directly across from Elephant Rock that was rarely used and seemed like it would be a good workout. We’d never even heard of it before, so we were excited to search for the miner’s cabin toward the top of the trail. We took my parents’ dog, Autumn, as well as Colton’s sister and brother-in-law Bree and Ben, along with us.
