I really enjoy the beauty of a fresh snowfall and I had always wanted to spend some time photographing the Grand Tetons during winter. So, a trip in February seemed just the ticket. I had been there before in February for other reasons and had experienced beautiful weather.
Well, this time Mother Nature was not so kind. Over a 9 day period there was only one day you could even see the Tetons. I made the most of it, getting a nice image in the morning with the Snake River. I scurried around to several other locations that morning trying to get something else decent but the sky was getting more overcast so no luck.
Then, just after noon, it began to clear again. I decided to put on my snowshoes and hike the mile out to Mormon Row where several historical barns and other structures are located. This was the longest distance I had ever traveled on snowshoes but it proved worthwhile. I had about an hour to get some images before the sky started to lose its beautiful blue color and go overcast again. That was on day two and it was the last time I saw the mountains during the nine days here.
I made a couple of side trips and gathered information that I can use down the road so I still grade the trip as a success. I may have to come back in June when all is lush and green with better skies.
