I'm thrilled to be taking part in Instagram Travel Thursday, a new weekly feature set up by several fabulous bloggers, sharing their favorite trips captured on Instagram. We LOVE to travel and discover new places, so I look forward to sharing several with you on a weekly basis! I'm starting with one of my favorite family vacations, taken last June. We spent an amazing week in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and Grand Teton National Park. We landed at the airport to the most amazing views of the Grand Teton Mountains.
We spent lots of time in the town of Jackson Hole. Great scenery, great dining and shopping. Lots of families taking in the amazing scenic views that surround this small town. There's a great park in the middle of the town.
Of course we had to sample the locally brewed beer after we did some white water rafting on the Snake River!
We stayed in the Grand Teton National Park and took a fabulous day trip to Yellowstone National Park. The kids were amazed by all the sites that nature has to offer! Waterfalls, geysers, natural prismatic springs, grand canyons, mountain peaks...you name it, this park has it. This is a must see in everyone's lifetime!

Inside the Lake Yellowstone Hotel. This place was like stepping back in time!
The lakes in the Grand Tetons offered lots of canoeing options, boat excursions, great hiking trails, etc. No lack of outdoor activities to do here! There's a great range of activities for folks of all ages. This vacation literally took us all away from everything and truly allowed for pure apprecation of nature which was perfect for our family. I loved seeing the girls finding joy in spotting a huge bison in the middle of the road or a herd of elk off in the distance. The weather was absolutely perfect the whole week, no rain and no humidity. The water can be drank straight from any tap and was the most delicious I've ever tasted! For an urban family, this was such a great experience for all of us to get out of our comfort zones and enjoy stunning sites all around us. If you get a chance, book a trip soon, you will not regret!
