An incredibly beautiful mountain range in Wyoming. It even has a glacier nestled in the cradle of some of the peaks.
This photo was taken right before a serious amount of rain deluged us. We were camping in the Tetons, going back and forth between this national park and Yellowstone. This was 1988, the year Yellowstone was on fire. It was quite the experience, let me tell you. Anyway, back to the rain storm. It rained so hard and in such quantities that the waterproof tent in which I was sleeping proved not to be water-sealed properly and my sleeping bag had a huge puddle with water standing about four inches deep. No bueno. It was a gullywomper of a storm, but it sure set up for a gorgeous photo.
I’m hoping to get back to the Tetons in the next few years. After all, the last time I was there was over twenty years ago.
Between the Tetons and Yellowstone, you have the geysers (Old Faithful, anyone?), the geyser basins, the mountains, the forests, the plains, and the wildlife. It’s one of the most beautiful places on earth.
