The Lower Teton Range and Barn from Mormon Row at Grand Teton National Park
Best viewed Large on Black
The Teton Mountains run north-south on the western side of the park so they receive direct sunlight during the early to mid-morning. This image was captured from Mormon Row (a short gravel side road from Antelope Flats Road) during the early morning when the first rays of the rising sun illuminated the old barn. The area was first settled by a group of Mormon families during the 1800s and although the original settlers are now gone, their old barns continue to inspire countless number of photographers. Some of the structures are private property so photographs should be limited only to those belonging to the National Park Service.
