We found Lewis and Clark River Expeditions, who offered "Scenic Floats" down the Snake River, and even advertised being a family friendly adventure company. SOLD! I called to book our trip, and they couldn't have been friendlier. He didn't even make fun of me when I butchered the name of our campground- haha. We were SO excited to take the kids on a rafting trip.
So, after our morning bike ride, we headed down to Jackson Hole, Wyoming (just a few minutes from our Gros Ventre Campground.)
We arrived early, and of course made time for a little sightseeing and some photo ops.
When we arrived at the river, the staff got the raft ready, and we excitedly waited and looked around.
As we took off, the guide explained that due to the heat (ha-it was about 75-80 and BEAUTIFUL for us!) we probably wouldn't see much wildlife except for eagles. Eagles?!! I didn't even know we'd see them. Now, I was even more excited!
They all seemed to be enjoying the ride as well!
Soon, our guide pointed out a Bald Eagle in the tree. WOW!! What a beautiful bird. I could not believe we were seeing one in real life. It was amazing.
We got to see this mama (or dad) eagle above their nest!
Then we saw a marmot (like a beaver) on the rocks. Little guy wouldn't turn to face us, so I got a back shot.
This Crane looked like he was posing for us.
Being out here, water rushing beneath me, huge sky above me, mountains all around me, and seeing these eagles flying above, I can see why they were chosen as our national bird. They are really majestic.
And so happy to enjoy this special day with my loves. My heart is full.
