We took a break to explore the immediate area and found that we were just a hop, skip, and a jump from Jackson Lake. We'd end up swimming here three times during our five days in Tetons.
|Dave cooking. We had an awesome meal one night to lift our spirits, fajitas!|
We decided to make a run for the marina and rent a kayak. On our way, we renewed our camping for two more nights. So we had already been stranded for a day and a half, the camp park rangers well aware of our problem, yet this was the first time someone bothered to tell us that there is a bus that goes to the good hiking area AND to Jackson! They gave us free bus passes and I went and bugged a nice lady at the visitors center for some phone numbers. Turns out there was a Carquest in town and they had the part we needed! Now we had a plan. Sunday we'd bus to town and get our part, then bus back and fix the van, leaving Monday for the hike we were dying to do!
We rented a tandem kayak and went around the bays. We saw a Martin and some birds and really enjoyed the freedom of getting out of the campground for a bit.
|It's no Victoria, but I hope Dave enjoyed the trip nonetheless.|
|We stopped at a little island for a break.|
