If you've never experienced the Tetons, you are truly missing out on one of the most awesome, spectacular places on Earth (and maybe even in Heaven). There is something about the rugged beauty of these mountains that fills me with peace and bliss and bit of longing. I've seen them in the dead of winter, slumbering under several feet of snow. I've seen them blooming in the spring and trembling with summer storms in July and August; ablaze with reds and oranges in fall. I've seen them waking up in the early morning hours and hunkering down at night. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, like the feeling of approaching the Tetons as my plane descends into Jackson. Despite their rugged peaks, they are welcoming to me. And I know, despite my desert address, this will always be home.

When I was growing up and we'd go to Driggs, there's a place where you go around a turn in the road and the Tetons appear. We always had to put our hands over our hearts! It's good to know there are others who appreciate the Tetons the same way.

Wow. That imagery is so powerful. I have never seen them but you have made me want to add that to my list of things I want to do or see. That sound lovely & amazing.
