What to do with three days in the Tetons ? hmmmm, so much to see and do, not really enough time for back country hikes, but there are so many places to shoot and a lot are right off the road.

Places like Snake river overlook, Oxbow Bend, Schwabackers Landing, Mormon Row, the list goes on, one place I love to shoot is Cathedral group with a 300mm lens, this an impressive set of peaks, including Teewinot, Grand Teton and Mt Owen, viewed from the north.

The Barns of course at Mormon Row or the classic Ansel Adams shot from Snake river overlook, not enough sunrises on this trip, so I'll be going back, maybe a winter shoot next time.

Best time to go, Fall, followed by spring, then winter and finally summer, well maybe winter will move up on the list : ) that's the only time I've not been there.

Not far from the Tetons is the Wind River Range, another impressive Rocky mountain range, the Cirque of Towers at Wind River is high on my list of future treks.

Wyoming has some of the most beautiful scenery in the Rockies and wildlife abounds like few other places.


Images In Light


  1. Beautiful images, Ross! I had my first trip to Grand Teton NP in September, and what a spectacular park it is. I really love the 4th image in your series, with the frosted foreground and that beautiful light on the peaks!

  2. Thanks Pat, I love it out there in Wyoming.
