Grand Teton National Park
A photographer could spend days simply trying for a perfect
picture of the Grand Teton Mountain Range. The park
contains a large open area that makes possible countless
different angles of the Tetons. I started with a reflection.
From further away, an entirely different group shot
of the Teton Mountain Range, aided by clouds.
And a closer Teton gathering from the same spot.
Trails go into the mountains and I tried one. But
the local wildlife was easier to find in the flat areas.
Moose, which I had met in Alaska a year earlier,
like being photographed. The video has great scenes
of a mother and her two active calves at Grand
Teton. This quiet drink was the best moose still.
A tip led me to stake out a beaver dam. This beaver did seem
awfully busy, in keeping with its reputation. I enjoyed filming
the beaver swimming and walking. With that flat tail, its
positive beaver identification. Next I headed north the
National Park System's grand jewel: Yellowstone.
