Views Along Gros Ventre Road

We decided this morning to do a little exploring. As we spent the night at Gros Ventre campground near Jackson, Wyoming we felt it apropos to drive east on the Gros Ventre Road up into the Gros Ventre mountains. It is good paved road for a ways. Then it turns to gravel and some of it is not very smooth. Passable for most any vehicle in dry weather, not so much so if it has been raining. 
It was a pleasurable way to spend a couple of hours this morning. Below are a few of the images we got going up and coming back down. We got up to a bit over 8,000 feet. 

Below are the images from our drive up a good portion of Gros Ventre Road. 

First is a rocky hill we thought was interesting. 

This view shows part if a verdant valley, the gravel road and some hills I found interesting. There is another of a different hill below it.   

The next three are of wild flowers we saw on the trip. 

The next five are of differing views as we returned down the road of the terrain and views of the Grand Tetons. 

Below we show you where we had lunch near the end of our travel up the Gros Ventre Road. As it was a Saturday there was some traffic on the road. 

Feel free to post a comment if you wish.
