I'm planning on coming out and hiking the Teton Crest from Teton Villiage, up past Lake Marion via the tram, and on to Lake Jenny beginning on July 20. I have a few questions I'm hoping hikers experienced in the area can help me with.
- I wasn't able to get reservations. Any experience on being able to walk up and make this trip?
- Snow cover. I know it can take a while for some of the higher elevations to melt. Any idea what I can expect this year?
- Temperature. Most nights will be spent in the 8-9k foot range. What should I expect in terms of temperatures?
- I understand that last year they began requiring bear canisters. Does the park service rent them and if so, what is the fee?
