When thick clouds thwarted my intended lansdcape shot on the morning of Dec. 23, I drove around seeking alternate subjects. I saw a bunch of cars stopped to photograph a distant moose herd, but I'd photographed that same herd the day before when they were a lot closer and better lit. So I passed the group by and instead found two yearling bulls on the move. They were headed in the direction of the hot springs; I followed them anticipating that they might go for a dip. Sure enough into the springs they went, providing me with an exclusive misty & dreamy photo session. Scroll the carousel to see just a few of the photos from this shoot.
Here's an image from The Snake River Overlook in GTNP. This image was taken well before the sun had risen. From the ranch it looked as if we had pretty clear skies, so we decided to head over a bit early and try for some stars. There were a few clouds in the sky, but we were still able to capture quite a few stars over the mountains.
Fair warning, I've got tons more Tetons images to get through. You will most likely get tired of them.

Journey of an elk hunter... year 8
This would be the first year I came into the hunt with a “plan” I had poured over my topo map for the last year. I had circled new spots I would check, made note of encounters I had in the past. I was loaded for bear!
This year found dad, my brother and my best friend Jason and I setting up our new wall tent on opening day. That night we got about a half inch of snow. As we ate our breakfast that morning dad said to me and Jason “you boys go ahead, Kade and I are gonna go to the wilderness park” Dad was turning me loose. He knew the only way to get me calmed down enough to hunt was to let me run up that mountain.
Jason and I made our way up the trail to the bottom of what I had named the banana ridge. We cut up the ridge and crested the top. There right in front of us was fresh elk tracks! Like a bird dog I was on it. We started following those tracks and figured there must be 6 elk. We talked it over and we were going to hold out for a bull. All though our tags were good for either. We started down into a small creek where the thick lodge pole opened up and increased our visibility to about 80 yards. As we crossed the creek.... to be continued
✨ BOOK REVIEW ✨
I, like so many others, LOVED @meganlmiranda ‘s All The Missing Girls. So, I was nothing if not excited to pick up another piece by her. But, understanding that these were two different books, I left any expectations or preconceived thoughts at the door before diving into this one.
Leah leaves behind her life in Boston after a controversial decision compromises her career. Seeking a fresh start, she moves to a remote Pennsylvania town with an old roommate, Emmy, and gets a teaching job at the local high school. But mysterious phone calls, emails, and sounds in the middle of the night put Leah on edge. Then, a young woman who bares a stark resemblance to Leah winds up mortally injured and Emmy disappears. Leah works to put the pieces together, and in the process learns that Emmy may not be who she says she is. •
As mentioned before, I was really looking forward to this one and was hoping it was going to be another home run by @meganlmiranda . But this one just didn’t deliver in quite the same way. Was it suspenseful? Yes. Were the characters intriguing and well developed? Yes. But I can’t help but feel that the author played it a little safe on this one. There was a lot of buildup and a feeling of “I need to know” in the beginning, but the ending felt a bit too simple considering everything that had happened. And, on another note, the writing was a bit confusing and difficult to follow at times. All in all, I give this one ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 (3.5) stars. •
