Leading a hike in Grand Teton

In 2010, the Wyoming Association of Church's invited me to give a program for their gathering at the Murie Center in Grand Teton National Park. I led a hike along the Overlook Trail near Moose Junction talking about the history and natural history of the park. I particularly enjoy talking about the early explorers to the area and their incredible tales of survival. We carpooled to Mormon Row where I finished my presentation on the establishment of Grand Teton National Park. Everyone was still with me and asked questions at the end of my presentation. They were all on the porch of one of the Row houses, and I was standing in the afternoon shower by that time. I enjoyed learning about the establishment of the park and sharing it with folks.
