WHERE: Grand Teton National Park near Jackson Lake Damn
Once the high from seeing the bear wore off, the panic came back and I resumed my course to the cabin. Thankfully I was able to transfer the files, but for a while there I really thought I had lost three whole days worth of images. Phew!
So with everything in order I packed up and headed back on the road. I stopped to take pictures on my way out of the park but the sky was now just bright blue, no clouds and full sun – not the best lighting.
This last piece doesn't have much to do with the bear but it does end my roller coaster of emotions. Another photographer told me where I could find a litter of coyote pups over on Mormon Row. I had never actually spent any time there so it took me a while to find it. Even then I wasn't sure where to look until another person pointed it out to me. Those pups really blended in!
Everyone has a passion in life, mine is photography mixed with the great outdoors. Though such should come as no surprise since I grew up playing and getting lost in the woods of The Black Hills of South Dakota. Making it only natural that I feel most at home when I am surrounded by mountain peaks and the voices of the animals. I have always wanted to make a difference in this world, I just did not know how I could. I soon realized by documenting our planet I could share my joy with the rest of the world. It is my hope that with my nature photography I will instill the same passion and love that I have for Mother Nature into others. This world we live on is truly an amazing place, but with our personal lives filled with work and stress we often forget to stop and take in the beauty all around us.
