Climbing Out of Jackson Hole Over Teton Pass

JENNIFER RUBIN: MYTH OF OBAMA'S GREAT TEMPERAMENTJACKSON HOLE IS SURROUNDED BY MOUNTAINS ON ALL SIDES, and dense fog frequently settles in the Valley over night, causing early mornings to be dreary and dark. But when the sun comes up it often warms the earth evaporating the dismal cloud cover. Yesterday we awoke to that ominous, low lying cloud soup. Before the dreariness lifted, I had driven over Teton Pass towards Idaho to meet a group of friends for hiking and snapped this pic of the Valley, several thousand feet below. By ten, there wasn't a cloud in the deep blue sky. A good time was had by all, although high, fast and dangerous waters kept us from fording some of the streams on the trail causing us to turn back early.
