Top of the World in Grand Teton National Park

While staying in the Grand Teton Village at the base of the Tetons, we decided to take the tram to the top of the mountain. The view was spectacular. The air was frigid even though down below it had been warm. The wind was hard to stand against. To the east you saw Wyoming, and to the west you saw Idaho. Unfortunatley, we chose to walk the 7.5 miles down the trail. We were exhausted after the hike. We had planned on only taking the 'top of the world' hike. However, portions of that path were covered with snow and after one early slip left visions of my children careening down the mountain, we abandoned that plan.

Camera on tripod, remote release used, SB-900 on camera. Initial editing in Lightroom, further editing in Photoshop CS5 with some content aware fill to edit a couple of hikers out. Some adjustment layers for dodge/burn, softlight..
