SUNSETS (6 different evenings) in the Grand Tetons National Park

If you read my last blog post (last Monday),  you will know that George and I traveled to the Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park from August 17-28,  2015.

We had fantastic weather ---and were able to enjoy sunsets (from various places in the Tetons) on SIX different nights.... SO--this week I plowed through all of my sunset photos and tried to pick one or two from each evening to share with you.  Amazing how things can look so different from one evening to the next ---along with being in different locations...

Hope you enjoy the pictures today.  Click on them for enlargements.  The picture above was taken at Oxbow Bend on 8/24/15.   I love the reflections in the Snake River.


Our first sunset the night we arrived (8/19/15);   This picture was taken from Gros Ventre Road (as we were headed to Mormon Row Road to see the Bison).  How do you like my 'creative' tree???????



I love the sunbeams in this one... This was taken at the Snake River Overlook on 8/22/15.



One of my favorites showing sunlight over the water;  This one was taken at Lake Jackson on 8/24/15.



Another picture similar to the one at the top of the page --but on a different night;  This was taken at Oxbow Bend on 8/23/15.   That is a gorgeous place to see the sunset in the Tetons.



Another gorgeous sunset taken from the Snake River Overlook on a different evening (8/21/15)



This was taken on our last evening (8/25/15)--and as you can tell,  there were more clouds on that evening.  But the moon is shining brightly.  This picture was taken near the 'famous barn' at Mormon Row.



I will close with another favorite of mine taken the first evening we were there... This was taken on 8/19/15 at the Gros Ventre Road (near Mormon Row Rd).. 
Hope you enjoyed seeing all of our sunsets... We were on a late night to bed schedule that week---so we didn't get up in the mornings in time to see the sunrise (maybe next time).  BUT--oh how we loved the sunsets!!!!!  That is God's Handiwork for sure.

Hugs,

George said...

Each sunset was magnificent and unique, and you captured them beautifully. I couldn't pick a favorite photo if I had to.

From the Kitchen said...

I love sunsets! I really need to capture one at our lake front (Lake Michigan) with the Chicago skyline in the background. I answered your question re wheat berries on my blog. I'd never heard of them until Ina "told" me.

Best,
Bonnie

Sylvia K said...

Glorious sunsets and superb captures, as always, Betsy, and a fantastic way to start my week! What a wonderful trip you and George had -- it's been a favorite place of mine for years particularly once me moved to Montana where we lived on the Air Base. Thanks for sharing!! Hope you have a great new week!!

You two are very fortunate to be able to get out and enjoy so much of nature. Loved your presentation of these fantastic sights.

Arkansas Patti said...

Those are beautiful Betsy. Especially liked the one over the water.
There is nothing like the Tetons. When I think of mountains, that is my first image even though I have only seen photos. Someday!! My Ozarks are like foothills in comparison.

Beatriz said...

I LOVE sunsets!
Once I worked as a volunteer in the project "Sea Turtle" in the Atlantic Ocean island. Every day I used to go to the highest part of the island to photograph the sunsets and also the sunrises. This is a real spetacle of nature, as well as your photos, Betsy!!!

Many hugs

Wow! These are all so beautiful. I'm so glad you had better weather for seeing the Tetons than you did in 2012. Well, I guess the problem wasn't the weather in 2012, but the smoke! But you sure made up for it this year!

Chatty Crone said...

I like your mountain header. And I love all the sunsets - but I think my favorite is the first one!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Each and every sunset is magnificent, Betsy! I know you enjoyed your trip to the Tetons very much! It is a beautiful area of our country. I'd love to see it all again, myself, one day soon!

Linda said...

Oh, these are gorgeous! I'm so glad you had a wonderful trip!

diane b said...

Betsy said...

Wow! Just wow! You have some wonderful memories from your trip and these sunsets have to be near the top.

Hello Betsy, how are you and George. I have been on leave from blogging for a couple of months, but now back with my two blogposts. Pure Oxygen Generators for my own plants, and my older blog for my travels and other's plants.

I am envious of your shots here, they are all adorable. I can imagine and visualize the beauty of them in the natural setting, oh how beautiful. The Grant Tetons is still in my dream place to visit.

Lux G. said...

Ah. These photos are spectacular. I love every evening you spent there.

Rose said...

I don't know how a person could choose a favorite...I love them all. So, so beautiful.

Beth from VA, . . ."E" said...

hey there, Betsy... your shots are lovely. i do believe is so impossible to pick one that is better than the other. ( :

i love VA. but when i see shots from out west ... i long to be there again. i love it in the cooler months. over hot. isn't sunset the perfect time to take shot. i love it fading behind the mtns. so pretty. great post. hope you are well. are you ready for fall?

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Beautiful sunsets! My favorite is the very first one with the reflection of the mountain in the water.
I've missed snapping some beautiful sunsets lately. Just too lazy to get the camera and drive to the lake, I guess.
Enjoy the rest of the week and Happy Fall to you!

Brenda Kay Ledford said...

Betsy,
All of these sunset photos are awesome! I love all of them. You've captured the splendor of God's amazing creation. Love this posting. It reminds me of the hymn, "Beyond the Sunset."
Awesome posting!

Janie said...

Wow, they are all beautiful! Love your header picture. You and George look like you're enjoying the mountain splendor. Glad you had a good trip.

Manzanita said...

The morning and evening sun DOES know how to pose for a picture. Oh so inspiring
to wake up to nature. I used to love to ski those mountains.

Jeevan said...

Awesome capture with each sunset and glad you could check many sunsets during your visits! Wonderful reflection with mountains and my fav was sunbeams

Diana said...

Betsy! outside of moon shots and landscapes and flowers and food... my favorite_ sunsets. :) Looks like you have been traveling all over the place but didn't quite make it to the northwest. Perhaps one day. The best to you and George.

Gail said...

I am so grateful I got to see this beauty through your eyes. Thank you.
