Day 82 Colter Bay to Jenny Lake Campground within Teton National Park

Today’s Stats: Miles 20 , +/- Elevation, 636/604, Total Miles 2,864.

We started the day with a hearty breakfast at Colter Bay with Brian, Shelly and Jens. Much discussion about how to continue our journey with the road closures and fires.

We decided to head to Jackson, WY and over Teton Pass to Idaho. Jens and Shelly meeting friends from Oregon in Ennis and making deciding their path forward. Brian sticking with original route.

So parting with our new friends was tough but expect to see them down the road.

Jeff from Boston doing Continental Divide route Canada to New Mexico.

Very limited phone service but Mark received call from hostel….go figure.
