#2 Weather

The weather is June is sunny with cooler temperatures which is perfect for horseback riding! It also can bring the occasional afternoon thunderstorm over the Tetons which is beautiful to watch from the comfort of your cabin! This keeps the grass green and lush, and leaves us with gorgeous rainbows!
