Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual POV (Take 2)

To make up for the bold appeal for my son’s scholarship pursuits in my last two posts, I will take you to the beautiful setting of the Jackson Lake Lodge in Grand Teton National Park.  The sun setting over the mountains, the elk moving across the Willow Flats marsh . . . add a fine meal on top of it and you have the formula for a travel memory that endures.

The traditional picture is often the full view of the mountain range as the sun sets on the flats . . .

. . . but looking behind me, I could enjoy the beauty of the sunset reflected in the windows of the Lodge . . .

. . . and continue to drink in the scenery as we savored that memorable meal many years ago in the Lodge’s Mural Dining Room.  No matter which point of view you chose, that breathtaking vista was there.

Ciao! ~ Kat

  1. Such beautiful country! I’ve been to Yellowstone twice and it is truly remarkable. Good eye, capturing the sunset’s reflection in the lodge’s windows. It’s a great shot and perfect for this challenge, Kat. 🙂


  2. I am dying to see Yellowstone, the Tetons and other points of interest out west with my family! One of these days…

    In the meantime, many thanks for allowing me to live vicariously through your photos! 🙂


    • Our “out west” road trips (which unfortunately never extended beyond western Montana and western Colorado — all of a sudden, we’re staring senior year in the face and have run out of summer road trip sessions!) are full of great classic family destinations!


  3. That is just neat! Sitting at a restaurant with that view… Remarkable! I never had it, really. I guess the view in the restaurant is far and wide for everyone to see.


  4. I have always enjoyed the craggy outline of the Teton’s. Such a beautiful place. I haven’t been there in over two decades. I hope someday I see them again!


    • We did a quick overnight in the Tetons at the end of a road trip to Yellowstone with most of the week spent in Yellowstone — we need to get back some day to spend more time hiking in the Tetons (heck, the same could be said for Yellowstone!) The boys were 9 and 11 at the time we did this trip.
