Daily Updates Archives:

For most of the last year, I created a monthly page with almost daily updates. If you take the time to review any particular month, you should get a good idea of what you might find. While each year will vary slightly, I believe the overall pattern will be fairly consistent.

  1. Mike,

    Your posts have been invaluable to me even though I have been to the Tetons at least 6 time now. This year I will be there for the first time in the Fall, last week of September. With some time in Yellowstone before I come down to the Tetons. Thabks for all the great history and information.


  2. Hi John, Hope you enjoy your visit in the Fall. Hard to imagine you wouldn’t!

  3. I’ve been to Jackson hole and Grand Tetons for the past four years. First three was during the fall and then earlier this year in spring. Its amazing to see how active the animals were and how many baby animals were roaming about.

    That’s a great shot of the cabin under the Milky way stars. My goal is to one day visit Jackson or Yellowstone when the night sky is clear for me to take a long exposed picture.

    Nice to meet you this morning Mike. I’ll be in JH till sat may run in to you out on the road again I’ll be in the red jeep. I made the drive out to C bay tonight but not much going on out there with the weather moving in only one buff one otter and two cow elk. I’ll be back over in the same aria in the morning where I saw u. Then maybe try CB again.

    Good Morning! I’m calling upon your vast knowledge of the park to help determine our housing for a Sept. 2016 3 day trip. Jenny Lake Lodge or Jackson Lake Lodge? We wish to sit an gaze at the view, do medium level hiking, horse and bike riding; kayaking or boating. Jenny Lake is so much more expensive; but it seems its location at the base of the Tetons cannot be beat. Jackson, too, but the view is more distant. We don’t know anyone who has visited the park and we are on the East Coast – can you help? Thank you.

  6. Jenny Lake Lodge is nestled back inside a forest of large Lodgepole Pines. Not sure if it meets your criteria. Check out some of the cabins at Signal Mountain Lodge or go with Jackson Lake Lodge. Good luck, Mike Jackson
