The Tetons and the Snake River is a black and white photograph taken by Ansel Adams in 1942, at the Grand Teton National Park, in Wyoming. It is one of his best known and most critically acclaimed photographs. Ansel Adams photographed this iconic view of the Teton Range and Snake River from roughly where we have posted several images (similar to the one below) from the Snake River Overlook. Today visitors try to capture this image forgetting that trees have grown and the exact location is not known.
The Teton Range gets a golden glow as the sunrise paints the mountain tops, while Snake River is covered by fog.
The steep, rugged mountains of the Teton Range give way to the morainic landscape of the valley, which is dotted with glacial lakes of varying sizes.
The Tetons are one of the youngest mountain ranges in North America. They have been uplifting for less than 10 million years, making them “adolescent” mountains, as compared to the “middle-aged” Rockies (50-80 million years old) or the “elderly” Appalachians (more than 300 million years old).
Most of the lakes in the park were formed by glaciers and the largest of these lakes are located at the base of the Teton Range
Instead of snow, clouds hover over the Teton Range making the mountains seems softer at Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
Rising above a scene rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton Range stands as a monument to the people who fought to protect it. These are mountains of the imagination. Mountains that led to the creation of Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming where you can explore over two hundred miles of trails, float the Snake River, and enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.
While snow laden mountains look spectacular, the beauty of the ranges in September is remarkable. Will be posting images from there.
We visited Jackson Hole, Wyoming recently and will be posting images from Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.
The airport in Jackson Hole is the only airport in United States within a national park – Grand Teton National Park. Arrived with a view of the Teton mountain range.
Mountain Hydrangea lives up to its name. It shares the showy blooms and beautiful pink or purple color of big-leaf hydrangeas, but because it grows wild on the chilly mountain tops instead of the mild seaside, it naturally developed substantially better cold tolerance. The sturdy lacecap blooms will be bright pink or deep purple-blue, depending on your soil pH, and the handsome dark green foliage resists wilting. Found these in Blowing Rock, North Carolina.
