Autumn Leaves in Tetons Looking East

Published February 24th, 2013

I used to spend 40 days a year in the Teton area. Since I was based out of Driggs, Idaho I explored the area quite a bit.
One year my friend Rick Horn met Mr. Christianson who owns a ranch in the mouth of the canyon. He invited us to
his home to see the view. It was kind of him to do so and I never forgot it.

The year before last in October, I was fortunate to meet him again. He invited me again to his home but I asked
him if it was ok if I trespassed and went up to his horse (and non-horse) pasture. Of course he allowed me to do so.

The other day I received a you tube of the song "Autumn Leaves" from a friend in Tbilisi, Georgia. It was beautiful to
listen to even though it is winter. Shortly after that I found these photographs in my stream.


A Dry Creek Bed

This one dries up every year. Further down in the canyon, the stream comes back again in the form of a spring creek. But that is another story for another day.

these friends came from a distance to visit


Lichen rock that came from up there.

I have taken photographs of this huge boulder before and I realized it must have come down the canyon via glacial action in a time gone by.


Clouds over the Grand and the Middle

The view is straight east and I waited to see if the clouds would come away from the peaks. This is as close as they came from moving away.

The Pasture Road

As you can see, no one is going down this road much. The light when I left was perfect to make this beautiful road to nowhere.
