Grand Teton National Park
Posted: August 27
 
My next door neighbor, Craig Larsen, and I had been talking for a number of years about the possibility of taking a photo outing together. As they don't usually stay that long and usually have family in tow, we have not be able to make that happen. Until today!

Our objective was to arrive at Schwabacher Landing before sunrise. We did get there before sunrise. On the way down the hill from the highway, we spotted about group of six elk.

We got to "the spot" and set up our tripods before the sun came up. Not long afterwards, we were joined by another four photographers.

We took quite a few photos as the sun rose. We then packed up our equipment and decided we would try some other places in the Park.

Our next stop was the area across the inner Park road that is across from the road that leads to String Lake. Craig had never been there. In my opinion, this area offers some compositions that you don't see in a lot of photographs of the Tetons.

We next stopped at the parking lot off the John D. Rockefeller Parkway (the outer Park road) on the right just before you get to the turn onto Antelope Flats Road. There we were able to get a photos of a fellow climbing the rock wall as well as some compositions of the Tetons you don't normally see.

Our last stop was Mormon Row. By this time, it was 4:00 PM and we had covered a great deal (we started at Schwabacher at 8:15 AM).
