Chilly Swim

Jenny Lake is a great place to check out an alpine lake with mountain views. Bring a wetsuit for an open water swim.

Family Friendly!

My favorite part about this lake? It's accessible. We took a family trip to the Tetons and having something that my grandmother (who's had both knees and both hips replaced) can do with us made the whole trip.

brings inter-tubes

Bought some $5 inter-tubes at Walmart.... worth it. Camped at Jenny Lake and went tubing and chilled on the lake every evening.
