There was one good sunrise. This is Oxbow Bend. The color lasted about ten minutes before it all clouded over again.

Four days over the Memorial Day weekend in Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. It was the first weekend when all the roads were open after winter. Although it did snow a couple of times. This is my second trip to these parks and I am planning a third during the fall color later in the year.

Okay, two good sunrises. An old much photographed barn on Mormon Row. The story is a group of Mormons arrived in the 1890s and set up a community. Prior to that Jackson Hole residents tended to live in isolated homesteads.

The famous bar in Jackson. They have saddles with stirrups for barstools. I guess they prevent you falling over.

I went to check out the first rodeo of the season. I know it's part of the culture but it was hard to get passed the animal cruelty involved. They still got my $40.

Old Faithful. It was erupting every 75 minutes while I was there. I sat through three of them before I got a sky that was not the same color as the steam. That storm in the background dumped snow on us soon after this shot was taken.
