More Tetons, more Tetons

A day in the shadows of the Grand Tetons in the Wyoming. I've scene many photos of these stunning mountains, but until you see them in person, it's hard to understand their grandness.Here's a day's worth of traveling parallel to them.

Sign marks entrance
You see the Tetons long before you get to the sign.

Stopped at a viewpoint. Where isn't there a viewpoint? You couldn't escape these mountains if you wanted to. Who would want to escape?

vast sky
I can see for miles, and miles, and miles, and miles, oh yeah.

Snake River runs through it
The gift keeps on giving.

Potty break; Kono takes a break from all the traveling. I photograph while he explores.
