Art Journal Days 3 and 4 on Our Road Trip Preceeded by Photos that Inspired the Journal Keeping

I think this is my third trip to the Grand Tetons outside Jackson Hole, Wyoming! If you cannot hear us saying "OhMiGod" while looking at the photos (and I suggest you increase your page size to 150%) you need to get your hearing checked!
Yellow Arrow Root
Our first evening. During our three days there we saw the Grands in fog, covered in low clouds, in rain and in
bright sunshine! They are amazing!
Our first Marmot spotting!
We took a motorized boat across the lake to hike on the other side.
Boys will be boys!
And then we saw a Grizzly Bear!!!!
The weather was wonderful while we were there.
Light rain showers happened occasionally; the temps were in the high sixties to mid seventies;
perfect summer weather in my book!
And here you see me continuing my art journal. On my birthday, which I posted yesterday, my grandkids poured over the art journal
asking me to read it to them start to finished. They were mesmerized! Stay tuned. More to come.


  1. wow!! Can you hear me ??
    Stunning countryside!!

  2. HI Lynn! Lovely post! I want to order a pocketbook from you! Give you free creative reign except I need it to be able to go in my bag that I carry my yarn and other goodies in, so no embellishment that could get really tangled with yarn :) Yey! So excited to see you make these cause I've been needing one for a long time and yours is so fabulous!

  3. Well you know I was immediately drawn to that yellow daisy (I know it is called something else but it is a daisy to me).

    The landscape is just stunning around there. WOW!

  4. Some really great photos here. I love seeing your DH in the snow. oh and the Bear and Mamot too. But most of all I love seeing your journaling. Wish I could see it larger to read it tho. And this is only day 3 and 4.. More to come. :))

  5. Grand Tetons and glacier national park are my two favorite places on the planet! You are going deep too .... we had a shallow grazing of the place with toddlers, but the boats, lake, hiking, marmots, bears, snow .... All a grand adventure!! Enjoy!!!!!
