Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
Aspen trees in the Grand Teton National Park herald the seasons. The trees were decked out in their spring ensemble during my visit in late May. This landscape outlined a vivid contrast between new foliage and the snow-covered mountain peaks. Fog nestled in the distance. Winds were calm, resulting in a clear reflection in the Snake River. It was a vision of silence, tranquility, and natural beauty.
The scene looks cold, and I can attest that it was! It was around 30 degrees. So I was bundled up in a polartec jacket with hood and wearing gloves. But I gave no mind to the chilly temperature because I was so grateful to witness such grandeur.
