Quote of the Day: Beauty of Nature

Day 3: Lopochova forest

“How hard to realize that every camp of men or beast has this glorious starry firmament for a roof! In such places standing alone on the mountain-top it is easy to realize that whatever special nests we make – leaves and moss like the marmots and birds, or tents or piled stone – we all dwell in a house of one room – the world with the firmament for its roof – and are sailing the celestial spaces without leaving any track.” -John Muir

Camping and More: Grand Teton National Park

Grand Teton National Park is more than just a popular scenic view from a car window. Take a look at these wonderful things you can enjoy while in the park.

Stampede!

Grand Teton National Park, August 2006

As I was taking my earlier shot of the South Moulton Barn, I heard someone nearby exclaim, “Watch out for the bison!” I looked up, and saw a herd of bison running in my general direction towards the barn. So, I wisely relocated, putting a fence between myself and the bison, and watched as the herd stampeded past the area where I had just been standing. As I gazed in amazement while the the herd ran by, I managed to snap this shot, and a few others that I’ll post later.
