Jackson Hole & Grand Teton National Park
During September, I’ll work on two pages simultaneously. This September Foliage 2017 post will contain more specific information about the ever changing foliage status in the area. The September 2017 Daily Journal for JH and GTNP Page will contain some foliage information, but will focus more on wildlife and landscapes. You’ll want to go to both regularly.
Note: Think of this page as a day to day or week to week resource containing mainly “record shots”. The photos are not intended to be “wall hangers”, but more documentary in nature. Also, this page will grow in size and scope as the month progresses. Check back regularly! Continue reading “Foliage Reports September/October 2017”

But the settlers did it! Along the way, the hardy group built towns, businesses, and farms and ranches. To maintain their horses and cattle, they needed fences. Today, there are numerous styles and kinds of fences remaining in the Jackson Hole valley to remind us of earlier days.
Back in 2015, I posted this page: Grand Teton National Park’s Buck Rail Fences. That page featured the area’s distinctive Buck Rail Fences, but there are several other types of fences used by the settlers and homesteaders. A few days ago, I cruised some of the valley in an effort to document some of the remaining fences. Continue reading “Jackson Hole’s Historic Fences”

September 30th: Saturday
Morning Clouds Over the Teton Range: When I left town, there were almost not clouds over the Tetons, so I headed out the Gros Ventre to look for Moose. I found three Cows, but no bulls, and I didn’t like the location of the cows. As it turned out, clouds rolled in, delivering a stunning morning for the landscape photographers. I took this shot from the East Boundary Road, a mile or so north of Kelly. Click this image to see it much larger. Nikon D810 and Nikon 70-200mm Lens, Handheld. Four shot pano.
