A quick reGear in the Valley of the Sun led to an afternoon flight out of Sky Harbor Airport, making the trek across the Four Corners, continuing over the southwest Rocky Mountains and into Denver International Airport. Barely making the connection to Jackson Hole, I was greeted by a host of my talented colleagues on board, ready to get the party started at Grand Targhee, Wyoming for Peace Park III.
When you deplane at the Jackson Hole Airport, you're immediately greeted by the overwhelming beauty of the Grand Teton mountain range, it's all time! Seeing how April 14th was going to be a blood moon occasion, it made the decision to stay out late shooting photos that much easier...not that the Teton Range wasn't reason enough!
I crawled around Highway 26 for a couple of hours watching the moonlight cast different lighting effects on the mountains, then swung a U-turn and headed back through Jackson, over Teton Pass (Highway 22 that turns into Highway 33 once you enter Idaho), through Driggs, ending at Grand Targhee Resort. As I pulled in, Gabe L'Heureux was front and center for the peak of the Blood Moon occasion...why not join 'em for a bit? Which I did!
That was the travel day to Wyoming from California/Arizona...not bad. Blotto
