Yellowstone - West Thumb Geyser Basin - Abyss Pool (1714)

West Thumb Geyser Basin


The southernmost collection of geysers and hot springs of the Yellowstone National Park can be found on the West Thumb Geyser Basin, right on the western shore of the large Yellowstone Lake. On our way from the Grand Teton National Park towards our accommodation at Old Faithful, we passed the junction of West Thumb. Here, the ring road branches off to the north along the Yellowstone Lake along Fishing Bridge to the Canyon Village. We had a lot of time, so we took off for a short walk along the Geyser Basin.

T.A. Moulton Barn (1374)

T. A. Moulton Barn


T.A. Moulton Barn in yellow sunlight! Yellow are the meadows around the barn, in the background the Grand Teton.

After my visit at Schwalbacher’s Landing to capture the Grand Teton and it’s reflection in the Snake River I drove just a view miles south to the Mormon Row to take some pictures of the lovely old and famous Moulton Barn. This barn was built between 1912 and 1945 by a Mormon settler and his sons.

Grand Teton at Sunrise

At our first visit to Schwalbacher’s Landing I know, I want to to be here a second time in early morning hours, when the sunrise will illuminate the Grand Teton. I dreamed of gigantic clouds over the Grand Teton, with it’s reflection in the Snake River. But during our time in the Grand Teton National Park, we had clear sky every morning and first clouds that arose in the afternoon. 

Nevertheless I stood up at 5:30 and drove to Schwalbacher’s Landing. I was a bit surprised to found the last parking space and a lot of photographers at the Snake River! It was nearly ¾ of an hour before sunrise and I didn’t got to my favorite place. There were a photo course of 20 people with its teacher and he stood at the best perspective to view the reflection of the Grand Teton. I managed to take my shot between two other photographers, but without my wide angle lens.

The colors on top of the mountains where amazing! Even I had no clouds for my picture I have dreamed of!

Osprey at Buffalo Valley


At our way from Grand Teton National Park to our holiday home in the Buffalo Valley we pass an aerie of an Osprey. At the first afternoon we passed there, we saw the Osprey sitting on an old tree near the road. One day later my wife Astrid want to paint the fantastic view over the Buffalo Valley, so my son and myself decided to go »on eagler hunt« with our cameras.
