Grand Teton National Park; Off The Beaten Path

The last 3 blog posts have been all about the iconic images of Grand Teton National Park. Its difficult to visit Jackson Hole without seeing and shooting at these places; especially the Mormon Row Barns, Oxbow Bend and Schwabacher Landing. There are, of course, other places, like The reflection of Mount Moran in Jackson Lake, the Jackson Lake Dam, Jenny Lake and the numerous waterfalls in and around the park. But with only 3 full mornings to shoot, we had to pick our places, and the first 3-arguably the most famous and most photogenic—were on the bucket list.

We did seek, and find many other images in and around the Park. One morning, running out of nice light at the Barns, we drove back toward the Park entrance. As we headed away from Mormon Row, we saw this young artist making his own image of a scene he found worthy of re-creating. While definitely not the “iconic” view of the Teton Range, it illustrated to us that there was grandeur and beauty in every direction.

We drove into the parking area for one of the ubiquitous small lakes in the park; String Lake. We got lost there for about 1 ½ hours, as the light remained cooperative and we found many nice shooting opportunities.

Driving the inner Park Road, we took the Signal Mountain overlook road and on the way back down, even in the harsh light of mid-afternoon, felt compelled to capture this distant view of the Teton Range and Lake Jackson. It seemed to me that everywhere in and around the park, those Teton Mountains were visible.
