As I mentioned before, James is an amazing hiker and really fun to hike with. He goes fast, stops are short and he has lots to notice and talk about. Juliet is sometimes great, other times a terror. This time was the later.
She wanted to be carried and then spent the entire hike in crying to go back to the cabin. Not fun for anybody, but especially E who had to carry the large, heavy, fussy mess.
Plus, the cloud cover was really low and so the day was kind of sticky humid and there wasn't a view of the mountains. We kept hoping the clouds would clear, but mostly they were blanked in a thick gray cloak.
Still, we were determined to have fun. It was our last vacation day, after all.
The water was like glass, and the reflections were just perfect.
AND Juliet had figured she'd had enough fussing and decided once again that hiking was fun, and happily and cheerfully hiked the entire way down (over 1.5 miles) without help.
Taggart Lake, even with the rocky start, was the perfect ending to our trip.
-We are coming to an end of my vacation posts, after this one I think I'll just do one more, with some miscellaneous photos that didn't fit into other posts. Tetons, we love you.
