Next week the staff of Grand Teton Lodge Company has promised to have my name. It seems a lot of you have joined in the competition to come up with just the right one…I cannot wait to learn what it is! In the meantime, I’ve been playing around alot.
Since so many people have been interested in the lake cruise on Jackson Lake this summer, I decided to check it out for myself. Wow was it fun! Take a look at the photos my friends took of me along the way…
First I had to get a ticket for the trip. The price was really reasonable…since as you know from my last adventure…I don’t get a very big allowance!
Then I went inside to check in and met a new friend! That’s me lookin’ up at him as we talked about the upcoming adventure to Elk Island!
Then it was off to catch the boat cruise and see Jackson Lake!
Before the captain came on board, I snuck up to his chair to see about a career change…he’s got a pretty big job! That comfy captain’s chair is the TICKET! I recommend that seat if you can grab it!
Before we could leave, we had to learn all the steps for a safe trip. So the captain took a moment to tell us about the safety measures on the boat…that’s me takin’ it all in.
We learned about the area along the way. Our first mate was Biddy…I forgot to get a photo with her, but she had great stories. She told us all about the Park and Jackson Lake and was pretty funny too!
About half way through the trip, we docked at a private island. It was fun, there wasn’t anyone around and all the guests could hike and eat until they had their fill!
As you may know, I’m a moose and just like the other wildlife in the Park we aren’t supposed to eat human food, or we’ll certainly get sick. So I just took a look at all there was to enjoy…
Then I sat by the campfire. Even though it was summertime, it was fun to watch all the familes. They were playing with something called marshmallows and making this treat called s’mores.
The kids sure thought it was fun that’s for sure!
Eventually, with the sound of the dinnerbell, it was time to head back to the boat to conclude our adventure. I hopped on the front of the boat for a quick photo opportunity before we left.
Special Tip: If you are brining the kids, ask the captain about the Jr. Captain License…it’s a great way to add to the kids adventure!
Here’s something else you should know for your adventures in the Park. We’re at high altitude and it is really dry here. So it’s always good to drink lots and lots of water. After our trip was over, I stopped by the water fountain for a drink so I didn’t get dehydrated after having so much fun!
Next time you are here, let me know…maybe I can be your escort for a fun-filled day in Grand Teton National Park!
