Sept 14th Jeff, sicksta Charlene her husband Tom and I took a very nice hike around Two Ocean Lake. ..an area of the Tetons that doesn't get as much hiking traffic.
But before we get to the trail…we stop for…
and lookie here…I get lucky
And Capture a bug in flight… We arrive at the Trail head for…Two Ocean Lake
The natural lake is 2.4 miles A 6.4 mile trail circles the lake passing through groves of Aspen and conifers.
The name Two Ocean also refers to nearby Two Ocean Pass which spans the Continental Divide and where a small stream splits into two distributaries named Pacific Creek and Atlantic Creek that flow toward different oceans. Two Ocean Lake is on the western side of the divide, and only drains into Pacific Creek, which flows to the nearby Snake River.
We hiked Grand View Point, which added about 2.5 milesAhh…Teton Views Zoomed in View… We walk thru woods..
But the southern portion of the hike also quite beautiful…
