A couple of boys spotted a deer and several saw some geese, but that was the extend of our wildlife spotting for today. That will change tomorrow as we head into Yellowstone National Park.
One funny episode (to me anyhow) during the hike was when Will Rasco started a business on the way back to the trailhead of carrying others' backpacks for 50 cents each. (I think that was the going rate.) He was carrying four at one time counting his one. He had quite a business going until he got busted! So everyone had to end up carrying his own pack. I don't know if Will ever collected the money or not.
The hike was great fun and the kids did really well. They're ready to go again.
We returned back to Jackson with a stop at an overlook of the Teton range and had plenty of time late afternoon for some swimming and hot-tubbing in our motel pool. We walked to dinner to Bubba's Barbecue which was another 1.5 mile round-trip hike. Boys were tired after today and so are the leaders.
After dinner we gave the boys time to chill in their rooms with friends and/or swim some more. We also told them they needed to have on clean clothes for breakfast tomorrow.
Compliment Tally: Great news. The waitress at dinner tonight gave the boys a sincere compliment and that means a treat is coming their way. I'm so proud of them. They're such a great group of kids. Thanks parents!
