Tetons Day 7: Cascade Canyon

Day 7 we awoke in Jackson and had a leisurely morning, before heading back into the park for Cascade Canyon.  This was the busiest place we had been — some of that was due to nicer weather, but some of it was due to the popularity of this hike!  We made it a little over 5 miles, to just before the Canyon forks north and south.  We again had a hot lunch and chilled for a bit, before heading back down.   This hike gave us a little over 50 miles of hiking and backpacking!

For dinner, we spoke to the hotel receptionist about some options, and decided on The Lift, a 15 minute walk towards the town ski slopes.  I imagine during the winter this place is happening, but at this time a year, it’s away from the down town business, and is more of a locals place.  We both had excellent meals.

On the walk over we saw a glass building with all kinds of colorful florescent lighting.  Upon closer inspection, we discovered it was an indoor garden, growing all kinds of vegetables on rotating shelves.  Pretty cool to see!

The next day we flew home.  We will definitely be back to hike the Teton Crest trail some day!  But we need to come in very late July or August, for that to be possible.
