A view from my window

We had an opportunity to have a little change of scene recently. I love visiting new places,
meeting new people, and seeing new things.
Driving through the Tetons was an unforgettable experience. Everywhere I turned had the color of an Impressionist painting.
The air was crisp, and so clean it almost burned my lungs. The scent of Lodgepole pine, Douglas Fir, and Blue Spruce was almost intoxicating.
The color of Aspens set against the evergreens, and gun-barrel grey mountains made my photographs seem as if they were 3-D.
It snowed during our visit and I shot the photograph (Hipstamatic) here off the balcony of our room.
The Aspen leaves are golden now, and you could hear them rattle as the wind blew down from the snowcapped mountains.
Jackson Hole is a beautiful place on this earth.

  3. I haven't been to the Grand Tetons since I was in my teens but even now I remember the crispness of the air and the somehow slightly more luminous quality of the light.

  9. Beautiful shot! Our #2 son and his family live in Oregon now and we enjoyed the scenery there and the air really had a different quality to it. I'm so glad you're enjoying the visit out west. As I mentioned before, Jackson was one of our favorite places too!

  10. There is a different kind of beauty out west. It's hard to put into words. Pictures say it better. I wish I had pictures from my year out west but in the 70's who knew I'd be blogging 35 years later.
