It felt like the entire group just collapsed last night. What was a quick nap turned into a snooze-fest until 1-2am. Cable TV is our friend right now, especially at this hour. hammercock and I still haven't gotten ready for the day. She is still in her Sorsha look. I still have vivid memories of yesterday's trip to the Tetons and their snow-capped glory.
Nothing like a walk to downtown Jackson. Took a scenic drive back with another lovely view of the Tetons. This time, the clouds were brushing against the summits with the sunlight trying to break through.

Parallels to the pilgrimage to Jerselum come to mind. I just hope the money holds until the end of my trip. However, I wish to somehow get the following:
-A postage stamp
Make that 6 states ;)
