I'm lumping all of the pictures from the road trip to Grand Teton National Park on day 2 into this post. Day 1 travel was rushed and I didn't have a chance to take any pictures.

Granted I haven't spent much time in RMNP in the summer in ~7 years, winter seems like it might be the best time of year to visit. The crowds are much smaller (most facilities are actually closed) and the scenery is absolutely majestic. I liked the taste of winter camping I got as a kid and wanted to give backpacking in the snow a shot. After being turned back by Sky Pond almost exactly a month prior, I looked up backcountry campsites in the area and settled on 'Andrews Creek' between Loch Vale and Sky Pond.
