Photographer's Note

Buck Mountain

A completely different landscape now, which also helps to make my U.S. map a little yellower. Our next stop was the town of Jackson in Wyoming, where we stayed for two nights. It gave us the opportunity to explore Grand Teton National Park, but unfortunately that day was one of the few rainy days we had last summer, especially the afternoon was pretty wet. This photo was taken in the morning, when a silvery sunlight still managed to light some of the peaks of the Teton Range, which is part of the Rocky Mountains.

The picture shows Buck Mountain (3,640m) and to the left of it Static Peak (3,447m). They are located just southeast of the Cathedral Group, which includes the tallest mountain in the range. The next day, we were able to take much better pictures of those peaks (so stay tuned). The summit of Buck Mountain was first climbed in 1898 by T.M. Bannon and George Buck.

I added two pictures to the WS as well: WS#1 shows Leigh Lake, just when the heavy rain started for real in the early afternoon, WS#2 is a more artistic approach of the same island in the lake.
