Roadtrip to Yellowstone: National Elk Refuge

We stayed the first night at Elk Refuge Inn on Highway 89 - between Jackson Hole and Grand Teton NP. In the morning when we woke up, I went outside to look at the view. It's a beautiful setting here. It seems like everywhere you look, there's something photo worthy. Little surprise that every one else who were awake at that morning was outside with a phone or a camera clicking away. This is going to be a photographic post, and all taken from either the parking lot of the inn, by roadside.

As culturally enriching as a walk on cobbled streets in Europe, a moment with nature is spiritually cleansing and satisfying, not to mention invigorating. It is this reason why we try to mix a lot of nature trips in between culture trips. This is one destination I definitely would go back again.
