A Swimming Pool in the Shadow of the Grand Tetons (Jackson Hole, WY)

Over the Memorial Day holiday, I took a trip to Jackson Hole WY where I took LOTS of pictures of the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. Great pictures of majestic mountains, endless vistas, wild animals -- including bear and bison. 

Tons of nature pictures but since this is a SWIMMING website and I only managed to get in a one day swim, (at about 7,000 feet so if you think you get winded at the Y or at West Neck Beach you ain't seen nothing till you swim at altitude!), and the picture above shows where I swam (2,500 EASY yards) -- the rec center in Jackson WY. I even had my own lane! A few of the "real" vacation pictures are up on Facebook.
