Inspiration Point

After a quick shuttle boat ride across Jenny Lake, we started our hike up to Inspiration Point. The trail goes through Cascade Canyon, and we got to cross the mini-rapids of the creek several times. Going up through the forest, we had glimpses of the Teton mountains high above us, and the lake down below.

At some points the trail was wide and gently sloped, but other parts were very rocky and steep.

Another hiker on the trail had jingle bells attached to her pack, our B&B caretaker had given us bear spray when we headed out that morning, and the hand stamps from the shuttle boat said “be bear aware.” I was pretty relaxed about the situation, except for a few outbursts of clapping and yelling “Hey bear!” (Ok, so it was more like a handful of outbursts.) (Ok, ok, more like regular intervals up and down the trail.) But, hey, being paranoid works! No bear sightings!

We reached the dock just in time to catch the last shuttle boat, and enjoyed a nice sunset ride across the lake.
