Viewpoints: My {Grand Teton National Park} Views

Wyoming Outdoor Documentary Family Photography

This Viewpoints post is a special one for me.  It’s one that celebrates a milestone for my kids, it’s one that documents checking off a bucket list item for me personally, and it was a trip where I could not put my camera down.  For the last several years while visiting Grand Teton National Park I have dreamed of planning a family backpacking trip into one of the numerous sites in Grand Teton National Park’s backcountry.  This trip will forever be etched in our family’s history book as my kid’s first backcountry trip, and quite possibly their favorite campsite in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.  Arriving by boat or on foot, you can’t beat the site’s white sandy beaches, trees perfect for hammocks lining the shoreline, and the never ending picture perfect scenery all around.

Many thanks to our friends, the Bumann’s, for helping to make this all possible and for being willing to adventure with us time and time again, despite all the crazy things that inevitably happen!   **All photos were taken with my new favorite backcountry set-up using my Canon 6D, and ultra light 40mm pancake lens.  It isn’t the most amazing sharp lens for night photography, but it does the trick as you’ll see below.  And note to self – bring a tripod next time, dummy.  It will be worth the extra weight – especially when there are canoes to haul it!  Hope you enjoy!
