Spent a glorious 2 weeks in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana and now engaged in the seemingly never-ending task of editing over 2000 images made during that time. I flew into Denver International and rented an SUV for the 2 weeks. I have often wanted to take the scenic Wyoming Rt 287 from Rawlings to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone so timed my trip to stop and spend an overnight in Rawlings before tackling the drive to the high country. The weather was perfect and it was impossible to drive for more than 30 minutes without the scenery compelling you to stop and photograph. Consequently, I left Rawlings at 7am and did not arrive in West Yellowstone until 7:30pm, aching back and all!! In spite of all the rain, the fall colors this year were spectacular and this is the scene that awaited me when I came to the Oxbow Bend area of the Grand Tetons National Park.
