Photo of the Day – Summer Mountain Skiing – Jackson Hole, Wyoming, USAThis past weekend while visiting Grand Teton National Park in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, I was reminded that you don’t have to travel internationally to find some of the most unbelievable places on the planet. You won’t find Grand Teton National Park located on anyones top 100 list, but it is one of my favorite places on the planet and somewhere I highly recommend everyone visit one day – especially if you are lucky enough to live nearby in the US.
Here is a picture of yours truly waterskiing on Jackson Lake with the beautiful Teton Mountains standing overtop the lake behind me.
Photo of the Day – Tranquil Cascade Canyon Water – Grand Teton NP – Jackson, USAGrand Teton National Park is often overshadowed by the nearby, world famous and AV #39 – Yellowstone National Park. It’s really unfortunate that Grand Teton National Park does not receive more attention. Even though you could fit seven Grand Teton Parks within the massive area that Yellowstone owns, the park certainly does not disappoint. Anyone planning a summer trip to Yellowstone should definitely allocate at least one day to explore Grand Teton NP.
I took this photo at the end of a long hike I took through Cascade Canyon the week of my brothers wedding last year. The hike offered beautiful views of Jenny Lake, Inspiration Point and of course Cascade Canyon. If you only have one day to spend in the park, I highly recommend this hike. I detailed out all of the logistics on my brothers wedding website last year – check it out!
Photo of the Day – Teton Reflection – Grand Teton NP – Jackson Hole, Wyoming, USAMy brother got married last fall in Jackson, Wyoming. A few days before the wedding our family went on a short hike through Grand Teton National Park. We stumbled across this lake which looked as if it was constructed simply to take EPIC reflection shots of the beautiful Teton Mountains.
Setting up for the shot was a breeze. When your subject is a landscape this naturally beautiful, your job as a photographer really becomes easy. It did however take me a while to actually get off the shot because my two little sisters kept throwing rocks in the water to watch them splash. While certainly amusing to a two and four year old, the endless ripples across the water created by the splash threatened to ruin my perfect reflection shot. My Dad is a photographer himself and sensing my frustration he was able to quickly get the girls to focus on another target!
