Il parco è situato a nord-ovest dello Stato del Wyoming, in una regione montuosa dominata dal massiccio del Teton Range facente parte delle montagne Rocciose. ⛰🇺🇸⛰
Si trova ad una dozzina di chilometri a sud dell'immenso parco nazionale di Yellowstone. Tra le due aree protette si trova il John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway, un parco istituito per formare un ecosistema continuo tra i due parchi principali. 🇺🇸🏔🌲🏔🇺🇸
Il parco del Grand Teton è delimitato ad ovest dalla foresta nazionale di Caribou-Targhee e ad est da quella di Bridger-Teton. Ad una distanza di oltre 400 km a sud si trova la città di Salt Lake City ed a 150 km ad ovest la città di Idaho Falls. La piccola cittadina di Jackson si trova presso l'ingresso meridionale del parco. 🏜⛰🏔🇺🇸🇺🇸

RepostBy @michaelclarkphoto: "Mt. Moran in Grand Teton National Park, as seen from Oxbow Bend, a fairly popular and famous site for photographers. We got lucky this morning with a still, silky smooth river that looked like a mirror. #grandtetons #mountmoran #reflection @nikonusa #nikon #grandtetonnationalpark #wyoming" (via #InstaRepost @AppsKottage)
It seems like for photography purposes the best time to be at Grand Teton is from about 20 minutes before sunrise until no later than 2pm for landscape photos.

Since it makes for a really long day to start at Teton Village and be out before sunrise I never stay out till sunset. 
After what was already a long day that started at 5:30am I was looking forward to a nice afternoon nap.  But after looking up at the skies the clouds looked just thin enough for the skies to catch fire.

It was a great show for about 20 minutes and then off to bed to crash hard.

My father told me that for my birthday he wanted to buy me some filters for my camera that would be fun and different, that when he was young he had some fun filters for his camera that he enjoyed playing with. I reluctantly picked out this inexpensive attachment to my camera that created a distorted macro effect. While I was on my way to Yellowstone in between the #summitadventure and #summitnature @summitworkshops a snow had blanketed the ground and my friend @lisa.carper carper and I stopped to photograph Jackson Lake. I decided that it was as good as anytime to try out this funky new lens. The result is what you see before you.

Chasing the sun westward behind the mountain. 🌄Today, I drove through two beautiful national parks (Yellowstone & Grand Teton) I saw a bison on the side of the road drinking from a stream, 🐃two moose and many different birds of prey (spirit animal?) 🦅 This trip has already became such a healing tonic✨ “Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.” -John Muir ⛰🍁⛰

*Mixed up Seasons*
The morning after I shot this image at Oxbow Bend, I was out shortly after sunrise in a location  where some photographers were shooting wildlife. I overheard one man comment on the tour bus by Oxbow the afternoon prior and he didn’t see why it was there since there was ‘nothing to see’. I disagree. And find it sad that many can’t find any beauty if it isn’t the perfect classic scene. See 2 posts prior for my capture of Mt Moran hiding in the clouds. This is in the other direction, which I find incredibly gorgeous, just in a different way 💙✨

I don't think I was made for the city at all. I'm enchanted by buildings and skylines, but nothing makes me happier than spending a day hiking along a mountain river.  My mind is clearer, I have more energy, and it doesn't matter if I've been wearing the same leggings for 4 days. It only took me 25 years to get this figured out, and it'll probably take me the next 25 years to learn how to build myself a small cabin in a place like this. .

What a wild ride it's been these past few months. As always, I'm finding it so important to slowwww down to appreciate these beautiful moments. If you see something beautiful to you... stop and look and stay a while. Soak it in, maybe take a photo, and remember the moment and the feeling it gave you. For this photo, I woke up extra early to see the sunrise over the tetons, exhausted from the night before trying to photograph the milky way in this very spot. I remember the cold ice that lined my windshield and the crunchy noise that my shoes made as I walked across the frosty ground. I love that sound. At the time I remember feeling let down the sunrise wasn't more 'epic'. But actually look at this photo! It rocks and it's gorgeous.  I love taking time for things like this.

During our visit to Jackson Hole we stayed at Anvil, a newly remodeled hotel just a block away from town square, walking distance to everything. Beautifully rustic, yet modern, thoughtful and sincerely friendly. And by friendly we mean Ricky, who greeted us daily at the front desk and told us all about that Walgreens that happened once only to get torn down when a mountain fell over it. The tag line for @anvilhotel? “You’re a stranger here but once!” - talk about good branding! #jacksonhole #anvilhotel #okhoneytravel

It was the night of the solar #eclipse near the border of #Wyoming and #Idaho up 12k feet in the foothills of the #Tetons. With very little light pollution or moon, the Milky Way was incredibly bright. The green is airglow. I shot from Southwest to Northeast with the Milky Way arching almost directly overhead. #GIGAPIXEL #tablemountaineclipse #nikon #nikond750 #sigmaart @borrowlenses #grandtetonnationalpark #wyoming #nationalpark #stars #milkyway #hiking #cold #quiet #epic #instamood #landscapephotography #landscapelovers

One of the things I love about photography, besides shooting with @karinsaucedo , is the sense of discovery-going to new places, seeing new things and meeting new people. Also the discovery in finding a subject, setting up a composition and then quickly going through your mental checklist: am I zoomed in enough or too much? Is the exposure right? The ISO, the composition, the focus? It's a great feeling when you see the preview and you know you have what you wanted. Sometimes however, the discoveries happen way after. That's what happened on this image. I was just happy to get a good long exposure of the mountains and the stars at String Lake during an outing with @summitworkshops . Then when I downloaded the image I noticed a few exciting things. First the moon "light painted" the mountain peaks. then noticed the green tinge of the Northern Lights on the horizon, and lastly, yes, that's a reflection of the Big Dipper on the water. Serendipity abound. #teamsaucedophoto #nikonphotography #lenscoat #reallyrightstuff #natgeo #findyourpark #naturephotography #grandtetonnationalpark #landscapephotography

I've been self-employed for almost a year [November 4, 2016 was my last day as a salaried copywriter!] And it's been a challenging but very rewarding journey. Still, writer's block tends to creep in at times when I have impossibly long to-do lists and simultaneous deadlines. But, working for yourself means taking on too much from time to time because all freelancers know there is a very palpable ebb and flow that accompanies our work. Worrisome dry spells [subsequently accompanied by financial stress] are often followed by months where you're doing unbelievably good. And then things go dry again. The compounded stress is hard to swallow sometimes. .
.
BUT [that brings me to this photo]...when I'm behind on work, struggling to find words, or overwhelmed by the anxiety that comes with an ever-growing to-do list, I remind myself that I gave up the comfort of salary and benefits in exchange for geographic independence - to be wherever I want to be at any given time - to rediscover a very necessary sense of whimsy - to chase seasons and worthy wrong turns. .
.
So, I take some deep breaths and go play outside. Nature is ever so restorative, healing, and cleansing. I closed my laptop today after catching up on emails, hopped in the car, and headed to Grand Teton National for a hike around Jenny Lake with Jack Cousteau. .
.
It's now 5 p.m. and I'm getting back to the grind. I still have a lot to do, but now it's [mostly] on my schedule. So I'll work late tonight and remember that, hell, I'm in Jackson Hole because I decided Monday morning on a whim that that's where I wanted to be for now. And that's why I began this journey in the first place. I just needed the beauty of Jenny Lake and the Grand to remind me of my purpose. And fresh air, of course. Ah, and falling aspen leaves. .
.
Here's to making all your dreams come true and living your best life. So long as you can accept the valleys that accompany peaks, your summits will be higher than you could ever imagine. Every elevation in life has its purpose, after all.

🌲🌧It was a rainy day, but the Grand Canyon Of Yellowstone is still one of the most beautiful sights I’ve ever seen! Our hike started out at the Wapiti Lake picnic area, and we passed through a meadow with a few laconic bison until we passed by the beautiful Clear Lake. From there, we passed through a hydrothermal area full of mudpots, hot springs, and fumaroles, after which we stopped at Lily Pad Lake for lunch. The rain picked up, but we pressed on until we reached the South Rim of the canyon, where we were greeted with spectacular views like this!🌧🌲
