We drove the family to Idaho Falls last weekend, and (after ditching the kids with Dad, Mom, and Liberty – thanks guys!) we hiked Table Rock with some of the extended Ricks family . What a spectacular hike! We climbed about 4000 ft in 4 miles up the steeper trail, and then meandered through the valley trail on the way back down. Great scenery on both trails.
Of course the highlight of the climb is supposed to be the view of the Grand Teton from the top of Table Rock, but that will have to wait until next summer.
NOT because I didn’t make it to the top, I DID, in the midst of a raging blizzard. Obviously though, there wasn’t much of a view. Oh well, next time.
This is Table Rock BEFORE the blizzard!
We stopped for lunch at the tree line on the way down – We were freezing!
The storm swirled around us, sometimes snowing, other times the sun would break through, but it was cold!
Our life saver came in the form of my always prepared husband. In the twinkle of an eye he had a nice cozy fire burning.
AAAhhh! It was so nice I almost sat on it!
What a perfect day! I can’t wait to do it again next year!
