Day 4: Grand Teton National Park

This was my final day at the Grand Teton National Park. I woke up early morning (4am) to catch the first light at Oxbow bend. It’s was an hr drive from the Gros Venture Campground, and it was one of the coldest morning. But I have seen pictures of Oxbow bend during dawn, and its simply breathtaking to be part of many photographers who had come to visit this scenic beauty. The fall foliage covering the Mt Moran and its reflection on the Snake river take your breath away. Having taken sunset picture here, I can tell that sunrise is more beautiful than the sunset.

Next I headed up to National Museum of Wildlife Art. The museum features some extraordinary paintings of wildlife by great artists. It was so beautiful to see in person. I spent close to 2 h just taking in the essence of such amazing paintings. Museum featured work by prominent artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Andy Warhol, Robert Kuhn, John James Audubon, and Carl Rungius.

  1. Beautiful shots. Looks like it was worth getting up super early to catch the first light at Oxbow bend. We visited Yellowstone a few years ago and just drove through Grand Teton National Park. I wish we had more time to stay longer and check it out. I guess this means we’ll just have to return someday.
