Thursday: M&C; picked out a campsite and looked around town while I worked in the morning. At noon we had a potluck lunch as a farewell to four employees who are leaving soon. Afternoon took M&C; out for a taste of lynx surveys – seems they weren’t too impressed with the amount of hiking and climbing over logs involved. Had dinner at the Mexican restaurant and headed up to Fremont Lake to set up tents and sit around the campfire.
Friday: Off to Jackson for a day of good eating (though I don’t recommend softshell crab sandwiches), shopping, and wandering. We drove up to the Tetons, where Michele found a group of spiritual masters in an etheric temple centered around the Grand Teton. They recommended that I spend three nights in the backcountry for spiritual attunement. As I hardly need an excuse to spend three nights in the Tetons, I have tentatively planned that outing for Sept. 13-16. After tasty desserts at the Bunnery, back to Pinedale and campsite.
Today is a bit more laid-back. Chris isn’t feeling great and wants to rest at the campsite. Michele is wandering around town. We will probably drive up to Elkhart Park for good views of the mountains.
