Grand Teton National Park and Jackson Hole reports

David,

I hope it is okay for me to post this here. If not, please move it or delete it.

 

I created a site recently with information about travel and photography here in the Tetons. The site is called Best of the Tetons. Right now, fall foliage is just beginning, but I will start reporting the status of the season's best spots on a regular basis. Moose are just about to start shedding their velvet. Bison are in the rut. Elk are fighting. Hummingbirds are leaving the area. Schwabacher Landing is still closed to vehicle and bike traffic. You get the idea. I've lived here for 26 years, so the site can supply information that might be difficult to get anywhere else.

One of the posts is called "If I Had Only One Day in the Tetons". Another is titled "Fall in the Tetons: Tips for viewing and photographing the premiere season!"

I also include links to local events and agencies, including info about the fall prescribed burns which can affect the foliage season. The Fall Arts Festival is just beginning. This site is relatively new, but is already loaded with content. Oh yes, there are lots of photos.

Each month, I create a page with daily updates and photos.

Here's the link: www.bestofthetetons.com

Hope you enjoy it!

Thanks,

Mike Jackson

Mike -- Absolutely. Congrats on your new site with Tetons resources for photography. It sounds like a great resource for photographers. I wish it'd been live when Annie & I took our (all too brief) roadtrip through the Tetons a few years ago!

Hi David,

Thanks for letting me post the info here! I read to build a successful blog, you have to pack it with good content, so that's exactly what I have been doing. We've lived here for 27 years, so some of the information I can supply is not easily gleaned from other sources.

Right now, foliage is just on the front edge of the season, but as it get closer, I will be posting a foliage report each day.

BTW, I read your review of the Sigma 120-300. A friend bought one and loves it. I am still using a 200-400 mm for most wildlife, but you certainly tempt me with your glowing review.

 

If you see Dave Ryan, please tell him Hello for me. I miss him here in JH.

 

Thanks again,

Mike -- Sounds like you're on the right track with your blog. I look forward to taking advantage of the info the next time I can get up that way. 

As to the 120-300, it's certainly awesome, but I also can't bring myself to trade-in my 200-400 to get one. I think if I was buying new it'd be a no-brainer, but I already own the 200-400...

David,

My 200-400 is paid for and working fine. I was most interested in the F/2.8 feature of the Sigma. Seems like that would come in handy at both ends of the day. I need to win tomorrow's lottery!

 

I've been adding a lot of content at the blog, including a post about finding wildlife (mammals) in Grand Teton National Park. Readership/followers is growing daily.
