Caving

Think Jackson is only a biking and skiing town? There are plenty of other things to do. That is, if you like climbing, hiking and in this instance, caving. There are the wind caves on the Idaho side of the Tetons and there is a five-mile long cave route that connects to the ice caves further along the cliffs. Rob and I didn’t do the whole cave, since it would require more equipment that we brought, but we crawled between chambers until the first mandatory rappel. Next time, we will need to bring harnesses, rope, wetsuits and more snacks!

The hike above the waterfall was a bit intimidating
