Finally - Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Lower Schwabacher's Landing, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Just about caught up with this year's photo trips and selecting photos to edit. I have spent the most time this year in Grand Teton National Park, and so this week's blog posts will focus on this beautiful place.

You might question my title for today's photo. Schwabacher's Landing is one of the iconic places to shoot in the park. I have visited this location numerous times in the park and have been totally shut out. On four of my visits, the mountains were socked in. On two other visits, the National Park Service, in its infinite wisdom, closed down the access road and I was unable to get there. So on this past visit with my buddy Jeff Clow, all I wanted was to get a decent shot of the Tetons from this spot. Jeff delivered big time (okay, Mother Nature also played a big part) and I was able to snag this shot on a beautiful morning. Normally, I might have wished for some nice cumulous clouds, but beggars can't be choosers. This location is often referred to as Schwabacher's Landing, but, in actuality, it is Lower Schwabacher's Landing, More on the lesser known Upper Schwabacher's Landing later this week.
