Back to Civilization, Briefly...


Hi everyone-

Greetings from Jackson, Wyoming. After a week in a tent in Yellowstone I have finally upgraded to a cabin with heat and a bathroom and wireless Internet. So over the next few days I am going to try and catch you up on my last week.

Today's images were all shot in Yellowstone National Park. This year has been quite different from others. It is warm, really warm for this time of year. The temperatures have been in the middle 70's and it has been clear and sunny. The amount of people visiting the park seems to be way up. And the animals are scarce.

I think most of this is due to warm weather. Hopefully when we go back to Yellowstone in a few days it will be a little better.

Today's images were all shot in the north eastern park of the park, specifically the north side of Mt. Washburn and the Lamar Valley.

The first image is of the first morning sun rays hitting Mt. Washburn well at least a portion of the mountain. I love these alpine meadows. The have a great texture to them. They are also a great place to spot wildlife, even though it is quite a distance away.

The second image of a coyote pup was shot near the Slough Creek Rd. just prior to Lamar Valley. This pup was one of three that were traveling with their momma. As I moved into position this inquisitive little guy stopped to check me out.

Along the Tower-Canyon road is the Calcite Springs overlook. This area is the setting for today's third image. This is a popular stomping grounds for female Big Horn Sheep and their young. Most days they can be easily spotted and are very tolerant of photographers.

Well today we'll start shooting in Grand Teton National Park. I will hopefuly be able to post daily now for a few weeks. I'd love to hear your feedback as always! Have a great day!
