The Teton Range is an Alpine
Unlikely juxtapositions, this
I remember vividly in the Tetons. Deep, cool canyons full of forests
and the sounds of rushing waters, then as one hikes upward toward
the alpine regions like Alaska Basin, there are vast open paradises
of waving flowers.. Below, Grand Teton itself rises to nearly
14,000 feet into the pure blue Wyoming sky.
Below is an image from
along the Death Canyon Shelf, which lies in the area of the range
south of the Grand Teton. The trail along the Shelf is one of
my absolute mountain favorites among the great high mountain walks
of America. I name this image "White Flowers Big Moon"
