Went to the Tetons for a week with my brother and his kids.  He originally wanted to climb Rainier, but I wasn't that psyched to guide them up that mountain, even though I've climbed it a few times.  So we opted for the Tetons.  Better weather, less logistics, lower commitment.

We warmed up on a scramble route on Symmetry Spire, then took a day off and went for a long slog up Middle Teton to get a little more acclimated, then took two days off and climbed the Grand via the OS route.  Fun week, and it was even more fun watching the kids progress in the mountains and moving swiftly by the end of the week.

Pics are out of order.  Too lazy to organize them.
