Wild and Rugged Tetons

Foramen the Tetons

If you’ve ever been to the Tetons from the last weekend in September to the first weekend in October, you’ve witnessed a beautiful sight. The changing colors anchoring the majestic mountain peaks is amazing. As you might imagine, such a scene attracts scores of people as well. Although the crowds can be very annoying, there is a certain vibrant energy throughout park. Interestingly, by the end of your trip, just as nature’s art display is winding down, so too are the crowds.

As I wandered the river bank alone on the last day of my trip, I came across this bone. Along with the grey overcast skies, it reflected my mood well. Just as the bone represented an end, the vibrancy of the past week too was dissipating. I melancholically procrastinated my departure. At one time, a free ranging animal had passed this way. How its end came, I didn’t know. It also occurred to me that there’s a different side of the Tetons I hadn’t realized before. Notwithstanding the hordes of people that visit the park every year, the Tetons remain a wild and rugged place.
