Today my Dad started driving at 5am while everyone was still sleeping. We got to Grand Teton at 10am. When we got there we went to the Visitor Center and got our Junior Ranger books. We stayed there and went to a ranger program where we learned about the best things to do in the park.
Next, we drove to Jenny Lake. There, we went down to the water and were catching minnows, and putting them in a gallon jug. We caught 6 in total. It was fun, and it was a very nice lake with a big mountain in the background.
We then drove to Johnson Lake and ate lunch and put on our bathing suits. We went in the water and caught minnows again. I was catching a lot! My trick was to wait until the fish came up to the surface of the water and I scooped them up. We had lots of fun doing this.
Finally, we continued driving north and we got to our campsite. We went shopping for postcards, and looked around the campground area. We ate dinner and went to a Ranger program to learn about how animals survive the winter. I was called up on stage and had to be the bear. We had lots of fun!
We went back to the RV and went to bed because tomorrow we will go to Yellowstone.
