Autumn in the Tetons, Grand Teton National Park

I find that in contemplating the natural world my pleasure is greater if there are not too many others contemplating it with me, at the same time. -Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire

I found a stretch of woods in the Tetons, towards the north end of the lake where people pull their cars over and make photographs. I walked up the hill into the woods. This act alone gave me respite from the masses. I hurriedly made some photographs and then made myself intentionally slow down. I stood on a log contemplating all that I was seeing. Then in the silence a bull elk began to call on the ridge-line above me. It’s one of the most hauntingly beautiful sounds in all of nature. I wish I could convey the auditory experience through the photographs. Nonetheless the photographs were certainly inspired by all I saw, and heard. This was my evening exploring Autumn in the Tetons.
