Smack in the middle of the spring bird migration and the Illinois chorus frog breeding period in southeast Missouri, I (irresponsibly) find myself in the Grand Tetons. We're planning to burn the grassland in front of the house, to ski at the Grand Targhee and to squeeze in a few good hikes.

There's still snow on the ground in the higher elevations, but the valley is essentially dry. The mountain bluebirds and vesper sparrows are back and Alyssa has seen cranes in the marsh behind the house.

I'll be back in Missouri in a few days. If I mess up an ACL on the slopes, Alyssa promises that Jackson Hole has the best physicians in the country to treat it.
