Tetons

Tetons National Park turned out to be one of my favourite camping spots. In truth my camping spots were all my favourites. Even through a rainy night and cold temps my tent and I survived. I was warned of bears and to secure my food as well as to stay off specific bear sighted trails. No worries - did not see or smell one. I did experience a Bald Eagle fly right over me as the sun was rising. Another memorable moment in my otherwise mundane life :)

      Thank you very much, Mark! I really enjoyed the Tetons and even though it was cloudy and not an epic sun set the long exposure I took left me happy!

    Stunning light and photo. Haven't been to the Grand Tetons yet but hope to go some day. Liked and shared.

      Thank you very much Ken! I came all the way from Hawaii, and you're a lot closer. I'm sure you can do it. I went after Labor Day and camped in their campgrounds which was quite nice. I learned from past experiences summer time is too crowded and a lot of people are traveling these days. I went north to Yellow Stone which is surprisingly close, and felt like I was in Disneyland in the semi-wilderness. I didn't like Yellowstone as much as Tetons. Unfortunately there were bear sightings and many trails were closed in Tetons. Just like in your gallery, you'd have some real stunners! Thank you for your comment, like and sharing! Much appreciated!

    Stunning photo Joe, I watch a few youtuber's based near the Grand Tetons and love there work. The place is so different to what I know and seems a million miles away :)

      Mike, thank you for your comment, like and sharing! I may go back up to the Tetons next summer and visit Moulton Barns/Mormon Row. Thanks for the location.

      Hi Mike, I didn't and in fact I never heard of them until you mentioned them. Had to look them up. My trip was completely unplanned and typical me just went where the moment took me. Plus I had no internet and no map and I don't usually stop in the visitors centers, so I confess I'm a clueless traveler.

    It seems you enjoyed being far from the sea shore :-) Camping outdoors Is always a rewarding experience.
    • Joe Lightheart
      1 month ago
      Thank you Marius! After two months of living in the desert of New Mexico, I really missed the sea shore and was lucky to get my fill when I went to Maine. My camping is not even comparable to yours - you hike for hours, I park the car and walk to the campsite :-) But yes, something about sleeping outdoors is caveman inspiring.

        Occasionally we do this also, camping near car, but being completely "in the wild" can be more rewarding :-)

      Thank you ant_hony! I use slow shutter so often and feel may be I should try not using this technique so much. I think part of it is I just love my tripod.

      Thank you very much jezprime. Tetons are really amazing! It's got a great vibe unlike YellowStone. I'm glad I had no encounters either. The thought of being shredded by bear claws doesn't sound like fun, and if it were stolen it's only an excuse to buy the XT-3 haha!
