22nd Annual Grand Targhee Bluegrass Festival

I went to the Grand Targhee Bluegrass Festival this weekend with Alex, Lauren, and Sara. We drove to Targhee on Friday evening, arriving just in time to set up camp and see Railroad Earth. There were a lot of people at the show, all camping out in the woods and fields near the resort. It was a fun, crazy night.

We woke up early on Saturday. It was a hot day, so we decided to go find some water to play in. We spent most of the afternoon relaxing and listening to music. The group Bearfoot, who happened to be from Alaska, was probably my favorite group. Later in the afternoon, Annie, Livey, and Maren arrived at the festival. Alex and I went back to camp to hang out before Yonder Mountain and ended up running into some friends who turn out to be our future neighbors.

This morning I woke up at 7 to drive back to Jackson for work. I definitely spent more money this weekend than I had planned on, but it was a solid weekend- good friends and good music.
