Teton Tumult

(Click image to enlarge)

The first winter storm of the season filled the entire Jackson Hole valley with thick clouds, rendering the Teton mountains invisible. As the storm subsided low clouds began rising out of the valley while higher clouds moved quickly north. The churning mass would expose and then hide brilliant sunbathed peaks of the Teton Range. Shown above is the tumultuous scene that morning.

From left to right can be seen a small part of Cloudveil Dome, the summits of Nez Perce Peak, Middle Teton, and Grand Teton mountains, with Mount Owen just partly visible through heavy clouds on the right.
