Snake River Float Cruise

Snake River Float Cruise

Taking a 10-mile Snake River Float Cruise was the premier event of our Grand Teton vacation. Our river raft guide was very knowledgeable and had been doing this for several years. We choose Triangle X based on reading on-line reviews, and I would continue to endorse it based on our great experience. Seeing the Tetons and the 13,772 foot peak of Grand Teton from the Snake River ranks up there as one of the most beautiful scenes I can remember….

Wyoming National Parks

Wyoming National Parks

Wyoming National Parks include Yellowstone and Grand Teton – two of our family’s favorites!  The scenery, sites, wildlife, and geothermal features of these parks are absolutely awe-inspiring. Our family usually likes to go to new places and see new things each year, but we left Yellowstone with a unanimous “we’ll be back” (and that’s saying something). Yellowstone National Park encompasses almost 3,500 square miles of Wyoming’s 97,000 total square miles.  To put that in perspective, Yellowstone is larger than the…
