Great hike, great view. Jenny Lake is amazing and it's so fun to see the Tetons close up. Make sure you do Hidden Falls while you're there!

The hike is not easy, and I had had a major surgical operation just 6 months before but it was worth every drop of sweat. There is no hurry, take your time, walk slowly, and above all make sure you hydrate. This is vital, bring...More
