We only made it to the first lake which was full of fish, lush meadows, surrounded by large granite peaks. Cindy rode Dan who at times acted like a young horse and once took Cindy straight up the mountain, bypassing the last of the switcbacks. Christopher was on Bullseye, who we are learning is a very steady and reliable ride. I was on Kipper, who at 23 still has lots of miles and I enjoyed his smooth gate.

All in all it was a great day, and enjoyed the wide open vistas, lush green forests, beautiful meadows and the grandeur of the Tetons.
