Teton Valley – Grand Targhee – Bluegrass Festival

Driggs, Idaho is a hidden gem! ✨ We always travel through the Teton Mountain Range on the east side and stay in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Cottonwood Canyon Road – Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument

Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument was the last place in the continental United States to be mapped. It still feels wild and untouched.
