Snake River Float Trip in the Tetons
August 3, 2005
The Snake River flows through the valley in full view of the magnificent Grand Tetons.
Rod manned the video camera while Brenda shot still shots.
Brenda afloat on this beautiful morning in the Tetons. It was luxurious to just float down the river with this magnificent view.
The Snake River is on the glacial plain in the valley next to the peaks. The rocky soil on the bank is part of the glacial morraine.
At left above is an adult bald eagle high in a dead tree and an immature eagle on a limb below it. We saw four or five bald eagles and two ospreys. At right above is a pair of Canada geese with three young. We also saw diving merganser ducks.
The river and the wildlife alone would have made it a rewarding trip, but in addition we had these magnificent peaks always standing above us.
Just the Snake River itself made a beautiful setting.
With the rapids came the view of the low, green hills which told us we were nearing the south end of the park and the end of our memorable float trip on the Snake River.
