Morning run in the Tetons

This photo was taken this past summer during my brief visit to Grand Teton National Park. I was not able to get a campsite at Signal Mountain and so spent a night at Gros Ventre and quite enjoyed the early morning wildlife action at that end of the park. On this morning I was driving along Mormon Row, on my way north, and noticed that a herd of Bison had broken into a run and were about to have the Tetons as a backdrop. Just watching this morning unfold was breathtaking but having a camera to capture it was a big bonus. The entire herd thundered across the road in front of me and disappeared into the rising sun.

 

I have been super busy with my grandchildren and didn't even have time to get on the computer for a few days. That is busy! Meals, baths, loves, schoolwork, volleyball, lessons, hugs, diapers, pinching myself - another side of me that I've never seen before.

 

I have decided to spend the next 7 months in a cabin right outside of Yellowstone. The rental rates on the cabin are greatly reduced during this time and they include everything I need so while it will be a big financial stretch, it has to work because it is too good an opportunity to pass up. I have often dreamed of being able to be near Yellowstone and Tetons during the winter months but wasn't sure that it would ever happen. I plan to finally get caught up on editing and writing and to start working on some finished products that will allow me to take my journey to the next level. And work in some wildlife photography in Lamar Valley. This is a bold decision and I did not make it lightly. Wish me luck!
