Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
When I took this image, I remember that I was mighty cold, bundled up with gloves and a fleece jacket. But the sight before me made it all worthwhile. I gave thanks for being able to see this beauty in person. It is difficult to describe how nature’s tender calm wraps around you in the soft light in the early dawn. And the majesty of Mount Moran provides the ultimate backdrop for the Oxbow Bend of the Snake River. It is easy to see why many consider this National Park as one of the most beautiful places on earth.
