We stayed for 10 days and found that Oxbow Bend was the best place to photograph the Tetons. The reflections are outstanding at sunset and sunrise.

Among the top 3 photo ops in the Grand Tetons. Hard to take a bad photo. Also good likelyhood of seeing wildlife here. Moose and waterfowl are frequent visitors, particularly near sunrise and sunset which is also a great time to take your photos.

Kirk had a telescope that he set up for us to see. He already knew about where a Bald Eagle and Blue Herron nest where!

We targeted this stop on our after dinner drive. We were on a mission to see wild life and this is a good spot for that. This is also a popular spot for photographers since a calm day can produce an awesome reflection of the mountain range on the water. This is a quick and easy stop.

This river has some great views but especially here. Once you have gotten out and taken a look around be sure and take the the next left ( if this was on your left) onto a dirt road the takes you down and along the river. You can stop for some great wild flower photos with the mountains in the background on your way to the end of the road at the river..
We saw people fishing there and also saw sa coupe other types of geese.
The end of this road would be a great place for a picnic. It is really nice right there beside the river.
