Saturday, August 19
After visiting Brandon’s grandmother in Indiana, we booked it over to Wyoming as fast as possible because we knew that there would be a lot of traffic coming in for the solar eclipse. We arrived on early Saturday morning and snagged a free campsite in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. Overall, it was a great, quiet, dry camp spot about 13 miles from the park entrance.
Our first day was spent trying to gauge our surroundings. We took the motorcycle into the Jenny Lake Visitor Center to pick up a detailed topographical map of the park and then did a short hike around Taggart Lake, where we sat and ate some snacks right on the lake’s edge.
