The delisting of the Yellowstone Grizzly Bear is imminent and this we should celebrate (‘’’’dancing’’’’). Now that our happy dance is complete, we must insure the grizzlies’recovery is permanent.

This book is for all visitors with a desire to seek out wildlife, photograph the landscape, or merely learn about the history, geology, and lay of the land of Grand Teton National Park.

Out of a chasm between Mt. Teewinot and Mt. St. John once flowed a large glacier that ceased to exist after the Pinedale Glaciation during the last years of the Pleistocene epoch, which ended about 11,700 years ago. Upon the demise of the glacier its legacy is Jenny Lake and upstream to Cascade Canyon.

While living in Lake Tahoe in August 1986, I read in Outdoor Photographer Magazine a feature about Fred Joy and his gallery. As with all featured artists Outdoor Photographer profiled the highlights of Fred’s portfolio and Fred’s stunning imagery of the Grand Tetons spilled out all over several pages

I have lived in many resort towns since, and I have noticed a trend, I am attracted to them when they are still small, quaint, and undiscovered, but it usually isn’t long before word spreads about this next great place. The newcomers arrive, and they marvel at the scenery but yearn for a classier looking town.

In July of 2012 I got some great news when I heard the Baron had made it through another winter, I knew where I would be as soon as late September arrived. With the arrival of Autumn my priorities were divided between the elk rut, the moose rut, and fall colors but I was still checking often for the Baron. After multiple strikeouts I finally found him.

At the Oxbow at this early hour, we are hoping for the first hint of light to reveal an expanse of cirrus clouds above Mt. Moran to stop the warm rays of morning light from spilling over the edge of the world to an un-captureable point beyond the Grand Tetons.

Eagerly anticipating a great day of wildlife photography, upon cresting the hill at Golden Gate just past Rustic Falls, to my surprise I saw three tepees pitched east of the road along Glen Creek. As I surveyed the scene for photo opps I noticed up ahead, crossing the road, a band of Indians, horseback, in buckskins, packing quivers of arrows and carrying spears.

I could have bought a tamer horse, but I couldn’t have bought a prettier one. Besides after getting bucked off so often I walked like some of the cowboys,

Grand Teton Park’s Grizzly 610 and cubs forage, frolic, and fight to the delight of this photographer. Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park have become a great place for watching grizzly bears.

The more I watch wildlife the more I don’t know!I have been living in the Yellowstone region for twenty-five years and have spent many hours, days, months and years observing wildlife as I photographed them or watching them while leading wildlife tours. Just when I think I am understanding wildlife they throw me a curve ball.

It is inarguable that the first sight of the Grand Tetons from any of its approaches it truly breathe taking. Entering Jackson Hole from Yellowstone you are treated to the northern Tetons where they tower above beautiful Jackson Lake.

  Mountain Goats the acrobats of the cliffs are a wonder to watch, these natural born rock climbers scamper around in a vertical world that would take the breath away of the typical human if we somehow found ourselves in their territory. The Mountain Goats of the Greater Yellowstone eco-system make a home on the […]

For most people wilderness and wild places are an abstract, intangible entity that most have never experienced, therefore cannot understand. For those who have they are never the same, an indelible mark is left upon their soul. Paradoxically wilderness can be both daunting yet ethereal filled with both danger yet also a delicate beauty. Once immersed in the baptism of the wild lovers of the wilderness become lifelong advocates of wild places.

The grandeur of Grand Teton Park has made it one of the most photographed places in the world. The opportunity to harness multiple juxtapositional elements has drawn photographers for over a century.

JACKSON WYOMING – On a cold and snow day two miles north of Jackson Wyoming in the valley called Jackson Hole a wildlife drama played out right above the highway that travels between East Gros Ventre Butte and the National Elk Refuge. This spot was conveniently located right above a large turnout that rapidly became […]
