Some mornings you wake up and the clouds have pressed down close to the earth. It appears that you are going to be wandering around all day in a fog. You want to go on a hike? How can you go on a hike in this kind of weather. Some days you just have to get ready and head out anyway. It appears that we were camping in a depression where it rained everyday, the trailer started leaking and almost every morning we woke up in foggy weather.
Some times you just have to make your plans and go ahead with them even though it’s foggy. We grabbed our back packs and put out a bucket in the trailer to catch the leak. Who knew that just one mile out of camp there would be sunshine. The road rose to meet the sunshine and it turned out to be a great day for hiking. We hiked in Teton National Park by Jenny Lake. There were bears all over. They were on these signs that warned about bears and how to hike in bear country. One man on the trail asked if we had seen any wildlife and I said, “Yes. They had back packs on their backs and bear bells.”
We did come upon a deer and her fawn eating right by the trail. The mother saw no danger with us being so close. The fawn was a bit more nervous and they wandered into the woods. So when your day seems foggy with no hope for sunshine, grab your sketch book and paints and head out for the day. Who know what and who you will meet.
