Falling in Love with Fall

As I stare out my window, dark clouds are roaring over the Tetons. The tired yellow aspen leaves cling to their branches, only to be soon whipped off by a frosty gust of wind. Fall is quickly changing into winter here. Last weekend I was driving up to Montana for a wedding and drove through a snow storm most of the way. Grizzly bears feast on roadside berries and moose are trotting around in my backyard. Yellowstone has open and closed their roads multiple times due to bad weather, and dried leaves blanket the ground. The bright colors of the valley contrast against a crisp blue sky on sunny days and snow covered mountains loom overhead. This is one of the most beautiful times of the year in Jackson Hole, and there aren't even that many people here to see it. Before all of my pretty yellow aspen leaves float to the ground I wanted to share a few photos with you that I took this fall. I was also able to sneak in one last camping trip before the snow fell. Enjoy!
