Rocky Mountain Gold – Day 10 – Grand Teton National Park

We arose early on day 10, first to check the weather, then to travel quickly to an area of the the park known as Mormon Row.  Since this would be our last day in Grand Teton National Park it was very pleasing to find that the weather was perfect for sunrise photography.

At Mormon Row we intended to capture the light from the rising sun illuminating the Moulton Barn with the Teton mountains as a backdrop.

The Moulton Barn is probably one of the most photographed barns in North America. It dates back to the turn of the 19th century when mormon homesteaders settled in an area of Antelope Flats known today as Mormon Row. Few of the original 35 homesteads remain, but those that do offer lots of photographic opportunities.

Later in the morning we travelled across the park to photograph an area at the foot of the Tetons known as String and Jenny Lakes.

After a short break back in Jackson Hole it was time to set off on a 200 mile journey to Green River. This would be a staging stop only as we would travel on to Glenwood Springs (Colorado) and Durango later in the week.
