Dornans - Wyoming Photos

If you're in Grand Teton National Park in northwest Wyoming, and you find yourself getting hungry, I highly recommend a restaurant called Dornan's. Its got a nice relaxed feel about it. The food is plenty good, with healthy serving sizes - but the location is really the key for this place. Dornan's is located near Moose Junction, not far from the new visitor center (which is pretty amazing, by the way). Situated along the Snake River, you are pretty close to the base of the Tetons. The view is just stunning. So after a morning of hiking, you can grab a big plate of pasta and head for the outdoor patio on the second floor --- put your feet up, refuel, and enjoy the breathtaking scenery. Ahhh, good stuff. Check out http://www.dornans.com/ for more details.

Below are a few photos from my most recent trip to Wyoming (October 2008) to visit my big sister. She was a most excellent host, guide, and photo assistant. Thanks Kiki! As it turns out, I couldn't have timed my trip any better - the autumn colors were fantastic, and the bull elk and moose were quite active and vocal. Awfully peaceful hanging out at the foot of the Tetons, waiting for the sun to rise, with the sound of elk bugling in the distance.

Okay, so I hope that you go and catch a bunch of cool snakes in Wyoming and then you'll feel so happy. Pet a moose too...and I'll be happy if I can have a baby buffalo. Thank you!

Wow! I have always wanted to go to Wyoming. It is on my "bucket list". Your pictures are fabulous. Just looking at them made my heart happy, which is a wonderful thing on this snowy Friday. Thank you!
