Jackson Hole, Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks

Below are pictures taken while spending a week near the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone, Wyoming. We were mostly near the Grand Tetons, but managed to get a short visit to Yellowstone.

Dusk near Jackson.

 

 

A slightly soft picture taken handheld at dusk.

 

We hiked up 3,000 feet to Amphitheater Lake. A fast moving river flows under this snow bank to feed lower Surprise Lake. It was refreshing to see snow in July.

 

 

Following a storm near Jackson, dusk colors the day's last light.

 

 

We spotted this moose, as chance would have it, in the town of Moose, Wyoming.

 

 

Geyser activity in Yellowstone. Many of these pools are heated near 190 degrees, and account for more human fatalities (mostly mis-steps causing severe burns) in the park then Grizzly Bear maulings (which also happen).

The geysers reflect colors of bacterial organisms.

 

 

Tourists enjoy a geyser erruption.

 

 

Yellowstone's "Grand Canyon".

 

 



Tourists can be seen next to the falls as tiny figures on the upper right.

Taken on our way to beautiful Lamar Valley hoping to see re-introduced Grey Wolves, but they remained elusive.
