Mt. Moran Turnout on Teton Park Road

Final morning in the park … and FINALLY had clouds for a change!  The Balsamroot flowers were coming on strong … a perfect foreground for a sun-speckled morning!

Pilgrim Creek Area in B&W

This cloudy morning brought to you by …. a hiatus in grizzly activity!  This exact location was packed with wildlife photogs the entire week we were in the Grand Tetons (first full week of June).  399, a local grizzly famous across the planet for surviving 24+ winters in the Yellowstone basin and for bearing multiple sets […]

Hope Springs Eternal

Just a few miles north of Flagg Canyon we saw this!  See my previous post for the contrast.  Spring, popping through but not yet completely overtaking the snow.  Just inside the Yellowstone south entrance, much snow still remained in early June after a 700+ inch winter of snowfall!

Circle of Life – Flagg Canyon

North of Grand Teton National Park, just shy of the Yellowstone National Park south entrance, is  Flagg Canyon Trail.  It’s a beautiful trail that runs north to YNP along a fabulous river canyon overlook.  Last year this area was part of thousands of acres that fell victim to a forest fire.  One year later, the contrast […]

Winter Enthusiasm

Winter, often gray if not blue figuratively, is in it’s prime.  While taking a walk through the park just after the new year, I saw this tree.  It has undoubtedly withstood many winters; some mild, some threatening.   Rarely do we have a sustainably threatening winter here in the deep south.  That said, we have […]

Naples and Big Cypress (Everglades)

It was rainy and stormy on 90% of a recent extended weekend trip to southwest coast of Florida, but it didn’t dampen spirits and fun.  I had a great time with incredible friends and family – my bud Carl,  good friend Brent, brother Larry, and  sister-in-law Jude.  Carl, Brent and I chased and ran from […]

Wisteria Lane

Project 365 – Day 100 Wisteria is another one of my spring southern favorites.  It grows on a vine, typically in trees or along fences.  It can be invasive, but nite quite as overtaking as kudzu and much prettier.  This group grows is along a random tree line and overgrowth area near our home.  I […]

Easter

Project 365 – Day 95 Easter means many things all at once, the resurrection being the most important, of course.  But it also represents springtime with tulips in bloom, azaleas starting to peek their way through, and a blanket of pollen ushering in April.
