Schwabacher’s Landing, a different view.
The most iconic image of the Grand Tetons in modern day, post Ansel Adams Snake River Overlook image, has to be the reflection of the Tetons from the Beaver Pond at Schwabacher’s Landing. Problem is, everyone wants that shot, so you have get there super early to get one of the spots in that 10 foot area to get the perfect composition. Since I really started shooting that location back in the early 90’s, the landscape has changed dramatically.There used to be a trickle of a brook that drained from the pond meaning that you had to shoot it from that spot. Now, the beavers have built smaller dams down the brook causing more ponds to form. This means you can literally shoot it from 50 feet from the parking lot vs. walking down the 1/4 mile trail to the original pond. I am almost beginning to like this view better because the original view is losing it’s foreground as well. Either way, in just over a week, I will see my mountains again.

  1. I minis those mountains! I was in Jackson Hole before it became a giant tourist camp. I miss the old rugged ranch land it used to be.
