Teton Crest Trail, Day 3 – Alaska Basin to the North Fork of Cascade Canyon
Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Once we reached the junction with the north fork, it was just over a mile to the group site that we had reserved.
With the super early start and a bunch of downtime in the morning, this third day was my toughest on trail, but the views from camp made up for how tired I was…
