It was difficult deciding on the title for this blog; we've been in the Jackson Hole area for several weeks visiting both the valley and Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.  The images in this blog entry include those from both Parks as well as a ride along the eastern portion of Idaho going north into Montana and West Yellowstone.

We've been keeping busy shooting in the "Hole" and visiting Yellowstone going along the 2-mile Firehole Canyon Drive, Lower Geyser and Biscuit Basins.  We've also hung out in and around the Mormon Row and Kelly areas tracking a herd of close to 300 buffalo.

Tonight (Oct.13) we're attending a benefit BBQ hosted by Jackson Elks Lodge No. 1713.  All proceeds raised will be donated to the local Fire Department/EMS who lost Engine 18 in the recent Horsethief Canyon wildfire.  Having experienced first hand that and two other wildfires at the same time during our time here, we understand the importance of safety and fire fighting equipment.  If you're in the area we encourage you to attend the BBQ, which is open to the public.

The skies are clearing, clouds are moving in with early temperatures falling.  The colors in the trees are all but gone and there's a general feeling of more change to come.  It seems that Indian Summer is close by with winter at its heals.  Yellowstone will be closing the south entrance November 4th "depending on weather".  All in all this is a great time to be in the Jackson Hole area.
