October 6-11, 2019
Joe is torn between the beginning of October and early May as to which is his favorite time in Grand Teton! While May is really beautiful and very green, early October often delivers very dramatic skies and often some early snows that provide a fresh covering on the peaks of the Teton Range. It’s almost like every day could be shot in the same location as the changing weather presents us with so many options!
Just like with our Spring Trip, each day’s location will happen based on what the clouds are doing and where the best opportunities lie, but we’ll include all of the iconic spots including Schwabacher Landing, Oxbow Bend, Jenny and Leigh Lakes and of course the famous Moulton Barns. We will also take one day to head up into Yellowstone to photograph the towering Lower Yellowstone Falls. We’ll no doubt see bison and pronghorn, probably some moose, possibly elk, and perhaps even a bear!
This is a quieter time in Grand Teton as the area winds down before firing up again for ski season. The Photo Opportunities are numerous and you’re sure to capture many beautiful and dramatic shots. In addition to the daily field instruction, we’ll have two classroom sessions to go over image editing and enhancements so you can bring out the full beauty of your digital captures.
Tuition includes guiding, field and classroom instruction. Lodging, Food and Transportation are not included. We’ll work on a special rate at our headquarters hotel and pass that on to everyone. Class size is limited to eight so that you are guaranteed personal attention whenever you need!
Many of our guests come in early and/or stay late to extend their visit here. There’s so much to see between Grand Teton and its neighbor Yellowstone National Park that you may be enticed to see it all!
Joe will be staying at the Hampton Inn Jackson Hole $132/night
There are lots of lodging options in downtown Jackson, WY. Besides the Hampton Inn, The Lexington Inn and Suites, The Anvil, The Antler, The 49’er and more are in town. Having a hotel in downtown Jackson makes it easy to visit restaurants and shops in the evenings, but there are many good hotels outside of downtown that are a short drive. Rates run from $84/night up to $250 and more with a lot of choices in the $125-$175/night range.
Lot’s of places to eat in jackson, but we will definitely have a night at the Gun Barrel – a unique place featuring game from the region.
And by the way, with the exception of classroom times, non-shooting spouses are welcome to join us at no charge for all of our touring!
