Granite Hot Springs Camping

Obviously, I was a complete dork walking around the pool in
a bikini with a blow-up turtle around my waist.
And I wasn't sure if I would be able to wiggle out of the turtle. 
I'm sure I scared some foriegn tourists.
This is the second annual Granite Hot Springs camping trip that I have done with my family. This year my good friend Dot and her kids came along too, seeing that it's fall and our husbands are busy with hunting season!  Being October we had to be fully prepared with extra warm clothes, mittens, down sleeping bags, and hot toddies for the mommies.  It was a great trip and much needed since I had just gotten back from the east coast a few days prior. From Lander we went through Pinedale to get there and through Jackson and Grand Teton National Park on the way home.

Now, if we can only figure out how to get there in winter... dog sled?

Sunday morning this was such a welcome sight after waking up to very cold temps in our tent.

View from the campground. There was a light dusting of snow on the mountains.

The U.S. Forest Service Granite Creek Campground was effectively closed for the year, but a few sites are intentionally left open for hunters and people using the hot springs, and these are free.
