Oxbow Bend

The Grand Tetons (Mt. Moran) reflected in the Snake River at Oxbow Bend, Grand Teton National Park. This view is on ever calendar and tacky souvenir in the park, but I still love it and never get tired of seeing it.

I love this image; the water was so still for you!

We watched a moose swim from the point (left) straight across to the forested area (right) at dusk. Our daughter ran down the road and caught a shot of him as he entered the trees and was thrilled! ;D

@Judy aka L@dybug: Judy, we have also seen moose here, but not this year. We once floated this are of the river in a little 2-man rubber raft and watched beaver and river otters. It's a great spot for wildlife, in addition to the view.

Unbelievably peaceful vista and glassy surface. We never see climate that still here. Even the dot of cloud that punctuates the peak is gentle. Lovely capture Barbara.
