You are probably tired of my Teton trip reports. It seems like it's the only place I travel, but it's so close I can head up on any weekend for a night or two.
This was just one night. I headed up on Saturday morning to cold temperatures, snow on the ground and clear skies. The weather was beautiful both days. A little overcast come evening but it cleared off fairly early on Sunday.
I stayed at Shadow mountain on Saturday night. Only one other camper was in the area. Two hunters sleeping in the back of their canopy/pickup. They came over to check out the SMB. I think they were a little jealous of my standing room, heat and overall comfort. Temperature said 3 degrees on Sunday morning when I left camp at 7:00. It was just barely getting light out. Spent both days wandering over most of the roads that were open and finished a book I was reading while hanging out at the Oxbow.
Me, the SMB and Mount Moran.
Some of the wildlife I spent some time with.
Sunday afternoon looking out over Jackson Lake. The Grand is barely visible on the left. Mount Moran is the main peak in the center. This is 8 photos assembled into the panoramic.
Quick trip but lots of wildlife were out and about. On Sunday morning, near Antelope Flats, I could count 12 moose feeding in the sagebrush in one area.
The sleeping fox raised it's head twice while I was there. Once when I got out of the SMB and once as I approached in the crunching snow. Both times he took a quick look and then tucked his head back down against his body. I spent at least 15 minutes taking pictures and he could care less that I was near by.
There was maybe a foot of snow at the most in the lower part of the Park and a little more up around the Oxbow and Colter Bay.
Thanks for looking,
