Jul 08, 2001: Tetonic Angst

WARNING: narcissism ahead

Unhappiness is the pouring rain at Yellowstone National Park. Somewhat salvaged by Simpsons reruns on the good old motel TV. Rain aside, if I could do it again, I'd spend more time in Grand Tetons National Park than Yellowstone. Yellowstone is known to make geologists drool, but GTNP is pretty danged incredible itself. The range was created by a fault that separated what eventually became the peaks from the Snake River valley by about 14,000 feet. Mountain glaciers scratched and carved out the jagged rest. Go there for some incredible hikes, but when you're done, be sure to avoid nearby Jackson, a yuppie cowboy burg full of hard to find establishments like Eddie Bauer.
