    Where I've been the past week

    Mount Moran

    So it's been six days since blogging, all because I spent Memorial Day weekend up at Jackson Hole, Wyoming. This picture shows Mount Moran behind Jackson Lake, taken from my back porch.

    Saturday we hiked to the top of Signal Mountain. You can see the islands in Jackson Lake pretty clearly from the top.

    On the way down, I snapped this picture of one of the many moose in the area. We saw many moose and elk over the four days in Grand Teton National Park. Beautiful creatures, but better in the fall when they have antlers.

    Who would I be without some tie-in to politics. Vice President Dick Cheney owns land up by Jackson Hole, and retreats there often. It just so happened that I was at the airport a little after he flew in to spend Memorial day with the moose, and snapped this picture of his jet. One day I want to fly in that jet...

    Anyway, all in all it was a great four days, full of hiking, boating, catching a good movie in the evening, and spending many hours playing Uno with my wife's host family. If you have never been to Yellowstone or Grand Tetons National Park, I encourage you to go. It's beautiful and relaxing, and a great way to spend a three-day weekend.
