07.20.12 by Don Follis String Lake Hike… This morning we hiked four miles on the String Lake hike inside Grand Teton National Park… A forest fire burned this area in 1999. We came upon some other hikers and we all waited for a black bear who took his time crossing the trail. Crossing the bridge over String Lake. Jennifer pondering along the Snake River. Lazy summer day looking from the Snake River upon the Teton Range.
