Grand Tetons

Here are some images I played around with from Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. These are ones I passed over in earlier posts, but which caught my eye as I was looking through the collection again. Instead of full-on shots, they are just little peeks of one of the great mountains. In some ways I most enjoyed the peeks as I was hiking or walking, being surprised repeatedly that these massive monuments of nature are standing sentry over the landscape at all times.

Have a great week.

Wildflowers and marshes, Grand Teton National Park

The wildflowers on our hiking adventure near Jackson Lake in Grand Teton National Park were wonderful.

I kept pausing to take photos, which really slowed us down!

I tried to work fast, though, so I wouldn’t slow down our progress too much. I managed to capture this bee.

I liked the quaking aspen behind these flowers.

There was a lot of thunder in the distance, making us hurry to beat the storm. The clouds made a dramatic backdrop for photography, though.

These marshes are around in multiple places providing habitat for many species of plant and animal.

Now that I’m home, I’m really glad I made the effort to take a lot of pictures. I can remember it so clearly. I hope you enjoy them too. Have a great day!
