Grand Teton, Wyoming

Upon completing the first 1000 miles and 18 days of my journey across America by bicycle, I entered Grand Teton National Park. It was the end of the day. The clouds were gathering and the sun was ready to call it a day, as was I. I stopped along the side of the road, got off my saddle and waddled to a quiet spot near a meadow and took in the scene as you see it here. Peace at the end of a long and glorious day.
