It seems like it was just yesterday that the grass turned green and the bison returned to graze in the yard! We had a beautiful summer, warm and sunny almost everyday. While this was not great for fire danger, it allowed for many days on String, Leigh and Jackson Lakes, as well as many hikes in the Tetons.
