As the snow
melts and temperatures rise, the valley floor of Jackson Hole changes color as
new plants emerge in the spring air.
Balsam Root, Lupine, Scarlet Gilia and cow parsnips paint the meadows in
vivid colors as the Teton Range rises more than 7,000 feet above the valley
floor. With only about 60 frost-free days a year in Jackson Hole, the
wildflower growing season is very short and as a result the blooming flowers
change quickly from week-to-week.
transitioned into summer, I scoured the park for a location that would
highlight the variety of wildflowers that call the park home. At climbers ranch the vision finally became
reality as I carefully positioned myself by lying on the ground to photograph
Grand Teton in all of its magnificence.
