Floating down the Snake River

8 Comments

Floating down the Snake River affords some great views… and the scenery is spectacular too! Aside from being very cute, our float guide was personable and knowledgeable and made the trip even more interesting. The Snake River flows from Yellowstone National Park meandering southwards to the Grand Tetons.

Last year I survived a similar float trip down the Bow River near Banff. It’s a terrific way to get up close and personal with nature.

Floating along listening to the waves lapping at the sides of the raft and the sound of the oar dipping into the water is extremely relaxing.

Civilization seems to be a million miles away.

Sit back and enjoy a peaceful trip down the river…

We encountered several fishermen along the way.

The skyscape in this part of the country is as gorgeous as the landscape.

As I mentioned before, this was my second visit to the Grand Tetons. The area is so amazing I hope at some point I will have the opportunity to make it a third time.

I am an explorer and creative person. I've had many jobs, careers and interests... everything in life and the universe fascinates me. Born in Brighton, England, I've lived my entire adult life in Los Angeles, California. A few years ago I rediscovered photography which is a great excuse to get outside and look. I'm also in the process of re-writing some of my unpublished short stories and possibly a novel. .

  1. What a glorious day you had floating down the Snake River, Roslyn. These photos are fantastic and really a pleasure to look at. Wonderful that a bald eagle was perched overhead, and the distinctive shape of the Tetons was great to see this morning. Thanks for taking us with you.

    • Thanks Jet. before I ever went to Wyoming I used to think, bleah, who would want to go there? Travel is mind bending and now this is one of my favorite parts of the country. I think they pay that eagle to sit in the tree for tourists!

    • It was indeed a trippy trip, Jill. I almost didn’t go on the trip as I had been there before and there are so many other places I want to visit… but some places, like this area, Yosemite and Catalina keep calling me back!
