Teton Crest Trail, Day 3 – Alaska Basin to the North Fork of Cascade Canyon
February 20, 2020

After a beautiful sunrise atop Hurricane Pass along the Teton Crest Trail, we dropped into the South Fork of Cascade Canyon to try to hunker down out of the wind and wait for the rest of our group to catch up.

There are worse places to sit and drink some coffee for a few hours…

Finally, after a few hours of waiting, the rest of the group showed up and we began the 4 mile, steady trudge down the south fork, the mid-day heating just beating down.

Once we reached the junction with the north fork, it was just over a mile to the group site that we had reserved.

With the super early start and a bunch of downtime in the morning, this third day was my toughest on trail, but the views from camp made up for how tired I was…

While I was chillin’ by the river taking this shot, there were some moose across the way from me acting all weird and scared….

The kept looking across the river and moving up along the bank. They seemed to be looking right at me as well as towards the rest of my group that was hanging out on a big rock so I assumed they were just spooked from us being there. I watched these two for a few minutes and decided to join the rest of my group…

About 10-minutes later, this fat lady popped out and ripped that log apart. I was shooting the river shot from a rock directly behind where shes’s having dinner. That was super cool! (Be bear aware!)

The storms were so nasty that I actually just debated about hanging out through sunset and getting to bed early, but I just really wanted a great shot of Grand Prismatic Hot Spring from the main overlook. Since it was my last night, I figured I had to try… It was one of just those nights that I knew I it was about to be a complete bust of a shoot. OR, maybe, just maybe the sky would go completely epic and surprise me.
