A Summer in the Tetons!
As most of you know, Luka and I spent almost a month in Wyoming. The reason was I was invited to perform at the Grand Tetons Music Festival, a collection of musicians from all over the world, of which many play in the world's finest orchestras and ensembles. I feel very fortunate to have been asked to join this collective.
If you've never been to this part of the country, you are truly missing out. It is easily one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Hope you enjoy some of the moments from our travels!
Fanny and Felix's Follies
The Poodlessohn's were not to be left out! They joined us on our Teton adventure and got to partake in the majestic views that Western Wyoming has to offer.Fanny gave out on us on two times mid-hike and once Luka had to carry her 45 lb. frame up a mountain for an hour, but that story is for another time!Felix enjoyed fetching a stick atop Ski Lake, which was at the summit of one of our day hikes.The lake water was absolutely pristine (See pic to the above!)Luka jumped in for a refreshing swim.I stayed on the sidelines as my body could not handle that much cold!
