Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming (June 20-22)

The tent-cabin at Colter Bay Village in Grand Teton National Park is my all time favourite type of accommodation.  I would definately goes this route again if I ever return to the area. I bought a book on places to photograph, how to get there and best time of day to go.  I was excited to set out first thing the next morning.
Antelope Flats
road to Jenny Lake
I could not get enough of this view of the Tetons.

This is my sunrise shot at Oxbow Bend.  I got there at 5:25am so had to settle for this spot.  This reminded me of jocking for a spot to watch and photograph the Mesa Arch Sunrise in Canyonlands in May of 2011.  This time I had a bigger camera and it was even attached to a tripod but my equipment was still nothing near what the handful of others in the prime spots were sporting.

I have so many amazing photos from this National Park.  I drove down every road possible and even ones where I had to turn back, looked in every barn, peaked in every window.  I was up with the birds in the morning and stayed up to see the Milky Way.  The heat trend from day one of my vacation was carrying on and it wasn't cooling down at night but I still went ahead and enjoyed sipping wine by the camp fire.  I could have spent more time in this Park but had other places to go and things to see.
