My humble words in no way can describe the beauty that is Grand Teton National Park.  Inside and outside the park is just wonderful to experience.  If you have never been, put it on your bucket list.  Below is just some of the less spectacular views from US 191 overlooks.  I say less spectacular to …

Moose Falls is the warm up act to the wonderful waterfalls that can be seen in Yellowstone National Park.  Located about a mile and half from the South Entrance to the park.  It is easily bypassed by many visitors.  Don’t be one of them.  It is easy to do. There is a short parking lot …

Laurance S. Rockefeller offers a bit of serenity to a crowded National Park experience.  It is a little off the beaten path on the Moose-Wilson Road.  Plus, the fact that the parking lot has a limited number of car spots.  Those two things make for an inviting day of finding a little bit of space …

Jenny Lake Shuttle: Grand Teton National Park

rp_28378154582_11f4fa486b_z.jpg

Jenny Lake Shuttle is a time, leg, and back saver.  While not losing any of the scenic value of spending time in the Jenny Lake area of Grant Teton National Park.  The views from the water are spectacular.  It cuts off nearly 5 miles (roundtrip) from the hike to Hidden Falls.  For me the time …

rp_28423645325_9dccb99f12_z.jpg

Grand Teton National Park is a photographer’s paradise.  It allows the simplest of amateurs to walk away with postcard worthy shots.  That is why I like this place so much.  From Mormon’s Row to Colter Bay a scenic view is always within the frame. This picture of Mount Moran was taken midmorning along the String …

The String Lake Trail is a good trek to take in the land of abundant views.  Honestly, a person really cannot go wrong in whatever they choose to do in Grand Teton National Park. Where to go. That is the hard part.  Luckily just about everything in the park ranks from jaw dropping to eye …

Colter Bay: Grand Teton National Park

rp_27720339193_25a8124a54_z.jpg

Colter Bay is scenic bliss.  Out of the unlimited amount of spots to take in the postcard worthy Teton Mountains Colter Bay is my favorite.  But there is a caveat.  Early morning is a must.  Not to get that first “photographers” light purple haze… water reflected… this is going on the wall photo you will …

Bridal Veil Falls is the easiest waterfall to see in Spearfish Canyon.  Located about 6 miles south of Spearfish on US Hwy 14A.  A very scenic highway that we highly recommend.  There is small parking area across the road from the falls.  A nice viewing platform along with the roar of the falls will point …
