I have written blog posts in the past about great day trips when living in East Idaho.  This past weekend was my anniversary.  My wife and I had decided to take a day trip to Jackson Hole Wyoming.  From Rexburg Jackson Hole is approx 1.5 hour drive. It doesn't seem to matter what time of year it is that you take the drive, the scenery is always beautiful.

There are several different roads that you can take to get to Jackson.  We chose to take Hwy 33 through Driggs and Victor. The Tetons looked beautiful as we crossed the rolling farms. We had a great time in Jackson as we hit some of the local shops, went ice skating and ate at the famous Cadillac Grille.

The quickest way to get to and from Jackson from Idaho is over the Teton Pass, it is a 10% grade, which is a fairly steep grade to drive over.  They do a good job keeping the roads clear but it is a good idea to check on the road report if traveling in the winter.  When coming home we chose to take the turnoff in Victor and come back across the Pine Creek Pass road.  This is a particularly beautiful drive in the summer.  All in all the trip was beautiful and another great day trip through some of the most beautiful country.
