p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Grand Teton and Yellowstone Trip


Hello folks,
I am planning to go Grand Teton and Yellowstone this september. Ijust checked on youtube and found out some video clips but it's general.

I know that you guys had experience on that trip. Could you please give me advice and where can i stop by to take the picture?

I will fly over Salt Lake City and drive to Jackson Hole and Grand Canyon and leave there one day (is is enough?), and then another day will drive to Yellowstone for 3 days.

Please give me some information, this is first time i visit that area.

Thanks alot

Injail

Ben, I am also going to the area this fall and just spent some time looking around your site.

It is outstanding. It was refreshing to read, when so many others keep their knowledge such a closely guarded secret.

And, you've got some very good stuff to back up your opinions.

Thanks for taking the time.

For landscape you will want wide. I have used the Nikon 14-24, Tokina 11-16, and the Canon 17-40.. For wildlife you want the biggest you have. I have used the Canon 70-200, 300 f2.8, 400 f2.8, 500 f4, and this year the 800 f5.6. Do not forget the 1.4X / 2 X extenders. Next week we will be there for our 4th. trip.. (35 days total). There is a new image around every curve.. Enjoy. Jim

Unclear what your stated itinerary actually is based on what was provided. Here are some distances to ponder....

Salt Lake to Jackson Hole is 275 miles North.
Salt Lake to GCNP is 543 miles South
GCNP to Jackson Hole is 790 miles North
Jackson Hole to Yellowstone entrance is 82 miles North.

The thing to know is that when they close the south entrance, which I have seen happen the first week of October is that the distance from Jackson to West Yellowstone via Idaho Falls is a long drive.

Hi!

If your schedule is flexible late september is best for color and a chance of getting some snow on the peaks. I lucked out with both in Colorado last year during the last few days of september. Makes a huge difference in the images.

If there are a lot of fires in the area then the skies might not be good for the distant iconic shots. So I would try and not plan too far ahead.

Spring is also a great time for the Tetons. Again, there is a chance for the peaks to still have a lot of snow and down low there should be a lot of green and color from the wildflowers.

Sept 25th thru Oct 2nd is best for fall color in the Tetons, generally speaking.

But one piece of advice - keep on top of the scheduling of controlled burns in the Teton Valley. The forest service, the last few years, have been holding off on setting their prescribed burns until the fall. The smoke that typically comes from those burns fills the valley and can make for some serious breathing issues, as well as obscured views of the prominent peaks. The haze can be quite brutal for sunrise (the BEST time to shoot this park) but can help some for magnificent sunsets. But again, this park is optimal for sunrise shooting.
