That gorgeous cloud let loose a small quick rain shower while we raced through the first grocery shop we had done in over a week, hoping we would be able to cook over a fire that night.
Blowout Campground just over the Wyoming border in Idaho ended up being one of our most relaxing camping experiences even with a bear box on site.
It also set the tone for the next day that we just didn't stress over what we didn't get to see but crammed in all we could.
On our hike to Hidden Falls, Graham spotted this little cascade, plopped himself down and said, "That's as far as I go, guys! I said I'd do one waterfall." It took us two Kind bars to convince him to keep going 😂.
What I loved about Grand Teton is how easily you can access beautiful lakes, wildflowers and alpine forests. There are several scenic drives in the park from which you can view stunning landscapes or you can hike one of the park’s many trails to explore closer. #latergram
While most of the US is baking under a heat wave, Yellowstone decided to skip fall and head straight to winter. Heavy snowfall, cold temps, and road closures weren't what I expected for a visit to the park in the middle of September, but it really was beautiful. More photos to come!
That time Darcy and Timbre of @facelessflyfishing fished the Green Drake hatch with us @frenchcreekbcr. Early summer dry fly hatches are on our mind as the weather cools a little more each day around here. Photo by @facelessflyfishing
His Majesty. This handsome bull has been ruling the cottonwood-filled river bottoms of Teton National Park for years. Some folks say he may be as much as 14 years old, or older. And while his antlers have diminished in size and volume his year in conjunction with his advanced age, he is still - as of now - the undisputed king of his domain along a tributary of the Snake River. Last week when I made this image he had as many as four cow moose competing for his attention. Living proof that old guys rule in the world of moose but one day soon, another bull will take his place at the top of the hierarchy. What I like about this image: The low angle, focused gaze, and the soft evening light touching his freshly de-velveted antlers as he moves into the open while maintaining a watchful eye for a rival bull or straying cow.

"When I consider how, after sunset, the stars come out gradually in troops from behind the hills and woods, I confess that I could not have contrived a more curious and inspiring sight." ~ Henry Thoreau.
Hoping your adventures lead you off of the beaten path this weekend.
The rising peaks of Grand Teton National Park. It's popular for mountaineering and rock climbing and became a national park in 1929. The Teton mountain landscape is magical and the park ranger at the visitor center warned us that we’d end up taking hundreds of photos (which of course we did!) 😊
AUTUMN || It's here! One of our absolute favorite things is watching the Aspen Trees change throughout the valley. Wildlife is active and things are finally quiet after a crazy Summer! What are your favorite Fall Activities in #JacksonHole ? Photo by @meagtheegg
Yesterday we spent hours tracking grizzly bears and after many distant sightings were surprised when #grizzly399 popped out of the woods right in front of us with her two cubs. It was an exciting conclusion to the Mountain Light photo workshop that Grant Ordelheide and I have been leading in the Tetons this past week.
