Teton skies





Merry Christmas everyone and Happy Holidays! I am not sure if Skywatch is happening this week but I will post my skywatch photos just in case.
This week's skywatch I am continuing my Yellowstone-Tetons theme from my previous two post. I have some shots I took of the Tetons. Two are views of the Teton mountains from the road and one is from our Jenny lake hike. We have taken the boat ride across the lake to do the hike to the waterfall and we have also taken the hike around the lake. The scenery is just awesome, another reason why I love this place so much.

The sky was a pretty blue with just some white puffy clouds around. A great day for a hike.








To see some more wonderful skywatch photos go to Skywatch Friday

Thanks for visiting my blog and checking out my Teton skies. Also, thanks to the hosting team of  Sylvia, Sandy, Wren, Louise, Klaus, and Fishing Guy.

  17. There's little better to do in this world than hang around Jackson Hole and the surrounding area--unless, of course, it's hang around the Sierras and Owens Valley. These are lovely, Eileen. If you have a chance, and get Sunrise Earth on HDTV, try to catch the Teton sunrise on "Moose in the Morning." Happy Christmas!

  24. Beautiful pictures of mountains that I see daily and take - almost - for granted. I was born under the shadows of the Tetons as the sun rose one morning in 1945. Merry Christmas.

  26. Merry Christmas, Eileen!
    I love the Tetons, although I haven't been there very often--the last time I was there we were driving in a small car, pulling a utility trailer full of camping stuff and some furniture, with two young children. As we drove over the pass toward Yellowstone, we drove into a violent thunderstorm. It was wonderful (I love thunderstorms) and scary at the same time!
