Enjoy a Sunset in the Tetons
One of the best times to take photographs of the Teton Mountain Range is during the golden hour (30 minutes before and 30 minutes after sunset). Golden hour photography can result in almost magical photos. You can emphasize textures, and long shadows, make things glow, and create fun silhouettes. It is also an excellent time to take wildlife pictures as they forage for an early evening snack. Let us chase the sunset together!
After we pick you up from your hotel, we will quickly stop at our favorite deli to grab dinner and beverages before driving into the Park via the Moose Entrance.
Upon entry, we will make a few quick visits to String Lake and Jenny Lake to appreciate their serene beauty before taking a short scenic drive to the summit of Signal Mountain to check out the fantastic view of the Jackson Valley and Snake River below.
If time permits, we will visit the historic Signal Mountain and Jackson Lake Lodges and Coulter Bay Marina, and Jackson Lake, named after David Edwards Jackson, one of the first known European Americans to spend a winter in the region during the early 1800s.
After leaving Jackson Lake, we will venture down several primitive roads searching for moose, grizzly and black bears, and sandhill cranes – from inside the vehicle or at a distance (a minimum of 100 yards), of course. As the sun begins to set, and before we start the return journey to Jackson, we will stop at Oxbow Bend, a slow-moving tributary of the Snake River, to take a few epic photos of Mt. Moran with her reflection in the slow-moving arm of the Snake River.
Our final stop will be at Mormon Row, a pastoral scene first settled by Mormon homesteaders in the late 1800s for its fertile soil, shelter from the winds, and close access to the Gros Ventre River. Here you can take some breathtaking photos of the Tetons as the sunset sets to the west.
