Throughout all of Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming this is my favorite location, "Lunch Tree Hill". Teton National Park started with a vision and an idea, John D. Rockefeller Jr. hiked to the top of a small knoll just North of Jackson Lake Lodge (Lunch Tree Hill). From the hilltop he gazed out upon the sea of willows and the towering Teton mountain range stretching across the valley. Elk and moose grazed down below, as the clouds danced in the bright blue sky. There, Rockefeller ate lunch and took in the astounding environment around him. It dawned on Mr Rockefeller to purchase the land with the intention of donating it to the U.S. Government so this view could be shared with everyone. His 25 year quest to preserve the land had begun.
Every time I visit the park I make it a point to visit this location, often times I just sit and never make a photograph, this morning I did make a photograph.
