Day Five: Jenny Lake and a Whole Lot of Wild Life!

Fifth day of my art journal on our great Road Trip...through the Grand Tetons, Jenny Lake, and Signal Mountain. (click to see larger) The intrepid travelers! My DH is a wonder, and a wonderful tour guide...not to mention a really fun man to be with while traveling across five states and seeing lots of wonderful sights.
A herd of elk made a pretty painting don't you think?
I think we fall in love all over again when we are at Jenny lake.
A few summers ago I was so moved by this scene that I asked DH if we could renew
our vows right then and there.
He made up some legal sounding gibberish and we considered it
This year we took a little motorized boat across the lake and hiked on the other side.
This little sage grouse posed nicely for us.
As did this fine buffalo.
He had lots of friends with him too, all just roaming freely over the landscape.
More to come.


  1. What a wonderful trip you took. It makes me want to go back and explore more. The farthest we drove to was Wyoming, and then we had to head back (not enough time) I'd love to see Utah.

  2. amazing. an i love to hear about your wonderful marriage and beloved DH.

    by the way, i have two blogs in a sense. I have a suki's poems blog with the format you called "easier" to read. And I have my regular blog. I post my poems twice, once on each blog. I have fewer followers on my suki's poems blog. Having the poems all in once place is nice though. I have a link on my PPP blog to my suki's poems blog.

  3. Lots of lovely photos. I love your journal page. It tells the whole story of the day very nicely. You got to see some different animals on the trip too. CAnt wait for more. :)

  4. That picture of the lake is stunning. What a wonderful time you have had here. Your journal pages are great. I can't wait to see the painting that you will create with the elk in it. There are all sorts of beautiful things here you could paint.

  5. I love that you renewed your vows on the spot.
    Right there before God and all the animals.
    Great photos,great trip!
