Memorial Day at Rendezvous Mountain!



















































































































































































































Today was a wonderful day!! We tried to go up to the top of Snow King mountain (which is right outside our front door) but the lifts are still closed. So, we decided to go to Teton Village and ride the aerial tram up to the top of Rendezvous Mountain. The tram is brand new for the 08/09 season. It rises up 4,139 feet in 9 minutes and can carry up to 100 people. It was like an oversized gondola. So we went to the top hoping to hike down but we were unable to because there was still so much snow at the top. It was freezing but absolutely beautiful. We met a guy at the top that said this was his second most beautiful spot in the world. We hiked around the places we were allowed for a little while and took lots of pictures. Then we went back down and had a wonderful lunch. We hope to hike down the mountain when it opens in a few weeks!
