Sunrise at Grand Teton National Park looks something like this: Beautiful! Juliet Schwab captured this image a few years ago as the sun’s rays illuminated the top of Mount Moran and turned the sky pink. Photo courtesy of Juliet Schwab.

Mount Moran and Oxbow bend

This view is thought to be the most photographed site in Grand Teton National Park. The Snake River is in the process of abandoning a meander and forming an Oxbow Lake – an abandoned lake with little flow because the river has a more rapid flow path. The little current flowing through Oxbow Bend keeps the water quiet, allowing the mountain’s form to reflect on the lake.

A stunning sunset over Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. Christina Adele Warburg took this photo of Mount Moran and Jackson Lake from the park’s Colter Bay District a few weeks ago after a recent snow. “I had to snowshoe to the edge of the lake for the sunset. The effort was definitely worth the reward,” says Christina.
