Early Spring in Grand Teton

In mid March, it is already spring in Grand Teton National Park this year. Snow began melting in the valley, and water began running down creeks… There is plenty sunshine everywhere!

The large Jackson Lake in the Park is still solid frozen at this time of the year. Snowshoeing cross the lake and exploring coves and islands are the only experiences left of this winter.

Many other smaller lakes along the valley can be explored with snowshoeing or cross country skiing. Taggard Lake and Bradley Lake are right under the base of the Tetons. These lakes would have perfect reflections of the Tetons during summer.

Creeks connecting the lakes were slowly melting… and bears already woke up at this time. One of my favorite spots; Tetons and Snake River.
