On the Road to Jackson Hole

On Saturday some friends (Shanna, Bill, & John) and I drove over the mountains and through the woods to Jackson Hole WY. We went to enjoy the fall scenery, and go through some of the many art galleries. The drive was truly gorgeous.

Our first real stop was near Ririe ID. There’s a rest stop above the river that commands an amazing view.

The weather was damp and misty with occasional bits of rain and snow DSCN4903

Okay, more than a bit of snow near the top of the pass

After visiting the galleries we drove out toward the Grand Teton National Park. DSCN4909

There were many, many ravens, and I was lucky and happy to find this one posing.

I’m still learning how to force this camera to focus on the correct object. This is still a little fuzzy, but considering how far away the Moose was, I’m fairly happy with it. DSCN4951

The drive home was a little warmer and drier
