From the dramatic towering peaks above to the playful antics of chipmunks darting below, Grand Teton National Park is a photographer’s sandbox waiting to be explored. In mid-October 2023, my wife, Martha, and I set out to explore what the park had to offer.
We planned our trip to Wyoming with one main goal in mind; to see and photograph a moose. After only a few hours in the park, that goal quickly became a reality. About 100 yards away in a field of sagebrush stood a commanding yet gracefully elegant bull moose. Little did I know at the time, this would be the first of many encounters during the course of the trip. If you want to see a moose, the Tetons are the place to go. We saw moose every day! The proximity to the moose seemed to increase in our daily encounters, leading to progressively better photos. Capturing the heartwarming connection between a cow moose and calf, set against the Tetons as an awe-inspiring backdrop was a memorable experience.
