 This is the boat that used to be the only way to get across the river.  Not very convenient, but effective.

 Nothing to say about all the beauty in the Teton National Park.  
Jenny Lake in the background is still frozen.  It was named for a Shoshone woman who married
 Richard "Beaver Dick" Leigh.  She and their six children died of smallpox in 1876.
  He was bereft but eventually married again and had three more kids. 

Signs everywhere warning us to be cautious of wildlife and for hours all we saw were a couple birds.  Not even flocks of birds, just one here or there, probably the scouts. Finally a herd of bison, not even appreciating their view, just eating, eating, eating.  Apparently they are thrilled to find something green after a long winter.  No wonder they look so raggedy.
