Another year older, and for once it feels like saying that I’m another year wiser isn’t trite. It is actually true.
Mike flew up to Idaho Falls and I drove down from Calgary to meet him. We then crossed the mountain pass to visit Grand Tetons National Park for a few days. We are staying in a charming one room cabin (well, two if you count the bathroom) with a fireplace at Signal Mountain Lodge. Five stars, two thumbs up, I can’t recommend it enough! Perfect for a birthday get-away.
I woke up this morning to snow! Ahhh… Snow. Such a lovely treat. It is just warm enough that most of it has melted away already, but the mountains are still covered with it.
Tonight we will visit Jackson for a birthday dinner at Local. “Local showcases their enthusiasm for reviving the craft of in-house butchery, with a focus on dry-aged steaks and house-made sausages.” Their beef is born & raised in Teton County – it has never left the area. Truly local. I’m all in.
Tomorrow we will head to Yellowstone. We will be staying at Old Faithful for two nights, and weather permitting we will be able to see a good portion of the park as well.
It is truly a very happy birthday. I can’t wait to see what the year ahead has in store for me. Thank you so much to everyone for the birthday wishes!
