Photographer's Note

Hi I'm back from my vacation to the Grand Tetons, Yellowstone and Craters of the Moon. I am starting my series with a sunrise shot at Jenny Lake. I took this about 20 minutes after sunrise and you can see there was hardly any wind that early in the morning. Roughly in the center is Teewinot Mountain 12,325 ft (3756 m) and right behind that is Grand Teton at 13,770 ft (4197m). The valley between the Grand Teton and the mountain on the right (Mount St. John at 11,430 ft or 3484m) is Hanging Canyon where you can find Hidden Falls.

According to Wikipedia "the lake was formed approximately 12,000 years ago by glaciers pushing rock debris which carved Cascade Canyon during the last glacial maximum, forming a terminal moraine which now impounds the lake. The lake is estimated to be 260 feet (79 m) deep and encompasses 226 acres (0.9 km²). Jenny Lake is considered to be a major focal point in Grand Teton National Park, with many hiking trails, scenic boat rides and a quick access to the major climbing routes into the tallest peaks of the Teton Range."

Taken around 6:30 AM a few weeks ago.
