Long considered America’s most beautiful National Park, Grand Teton National Park is the picture-perfect image of mountain grandeur and the most iconic range in the country.
Located in northwest Wyoming, sitting just south of Yellowstone, jagged and often snowy, mountain peaks spring from out of the plains towards the heavens, inspiring a sense of wonder and creativity in those who stand in marvel before them. These mountains are some of the youngest in the world, yet are made up of some 2.7 billion-year-old rock, which is among the oldest in North America (This is relatively the same age as the basement rock in the depths of the Grand Canyon). The peaks rise approximately 7,000 vertical feet from the valley floor, and no foothills obstruct the incredible views.
Did you know? Grand Teton National Park is one the best locations on the planet for viewing wildlife during winter - particularly Moose.
Our focus on this trip will be Bull Moose with Full Antlers!
In early winter, the moose rut ends yet bulls retain their antlers. A little know secret is that this time of year they congregate together in sage fields, which can provide awesome Moose Photography opportunities. Early Winter in Grand Teton National Park provides the best opportunity we know of where photographers have the best chance to capture incredible full-frame images of bull moose - couple that with dramatic Teton Range backdrops & you've got quite a workshop!
Other great wildlife opportunities exist in the park and the nearby National Elk Refuge. The National Elk Refuge was established in 1912 and is adjacent to Jackson, WY, and Grand Teton National Park. The Refuge protects critically important habitat for numerous iconic species, including elk, bison, wolves, trumpeter swans, bald eagles, bighorn sheep, and cutthroat trout. Winter is the best time to observe and photograph many of those species. The Refuge is famous for its wintering elk herds, which migrate down from the mountains to spend the winter congregated in the open sage flats.
We’ll be staying in the quaint cowboy town of Jackson, Wyoming. Jackson is adjacent to Grand Teton National Park and the National Elk Refuge, making it an awesome home base to photograph the Moose & other critters.
Our guide on this trip Trevor LaClair has been guiding, hiking, and photographing the Tetons for years, and will show you areas of this 310,000-acre park that most visitors easily miss...like ahem....where the Moose hang out!!
Don't miss this one. Come join us and photograph Bull Moose this Winter.
...and if you have yet to go on a BCJ Photography Trip with Trevor yet...he's a lot of fun!
