A Pit Stop in Grand Teton National Park
Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
The Great Road Trip of 2015
I had driven nearly 800 straight miles from Lake Louise (Alberta), across all of Montana, through Yellowstone, and in to Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. It was midnight and I still had 500 more miles to go, but my eyelids were getting real heavy. I pulled in to a parking area near Jackson Lake, crawled in to bed, and next thing I knew, my alarm was going off for sunrise.
I had shot the iconic Oxbow Bend five or six times and I don’t think I’ve ever had a cloud in the sky. Naturally, that morning didn’t turn out any differently.
I grabbed a few frames, picked up a coffee at the lodge, ran over to String Lake, (which was a perfect mirror!), replenished my Pakos stash in Jackson, and was on my way home.
I don’t even think I was in the park for more than 7 hours, including a night’s sleep.
