Scenery of Grand Teton National Park

After Yellowstone, we drove over the Continental Divide to the Grand Teton National Park. We woke up to cloudy skies and soon ran into falling snow! Then rain. Drove to the Colter Bay campground.
This is the Colter Bay marina on the afternoon of our arrival. Cloudy and cold but no more rain.
Colter Bay marina the next day, weather was sunny and warm.
This is Oxbow bend turnout, one of the most photographed sites in the Grand Tetons. Beautiful view of the Grand Tetons and Mt. Moran with the Snake river in the foreground. This was taken the first afternoon we arrived.
Same shot the next day when the skies were a lot clearer.
Same shot the following day when I realized there was no wind and the water was smooth as glass.
A lot of trails and one road was closed due to bear activity.
Jackson lake and the Grand Tetons.
Ansel Adams took this photo of the Grand Tetons and the Snake river on this spot in 1942.
Here's my photo of the same spot, a little different because the trees are bigger.
We took a boat tour of Jackson Lake.
Hiked the trail to Taggart and Bradley lakes.
Taggart lake.

Bradley lake.
Had to add this photo. This is from our last trip to the Grand Tetons, it was August 31st!!
