I will never forget my time working in Yellowstone National Park for 2 summers. Yellowstone is such a beautiful and magical place and I look forward to returning once again. My fiance and I were seasonal workers in Grant Village during the summers of 2014 and 2015. We both worked in the Grant Village restaurant. He was a cook and I was a host. I loved that job more than any other job I have ever worked in my life.
These images I took during the time I was working at Grant Village in Yellowstone National Park. This image above I took in Grant Village down by Yellowstone Lake. I had spent the night in my van by the lake in order to capture the first rays of the sunrise over the lake. As you can see I was not the only one with this plan. This Photographer was also out there capturing the beauty of the lake. You can click on the images to see them without the watermarks.
While working in Grant Village, We traveled to Jackson, Wyoming also known as Jackson Hole in order to get supplies during our days off. It was a 2-hour trip that took us through Grand Tetons National Park. There were always photo opportunities along the way, so while it was a trip to run errands, it was also always a sightseeing trip on the way and back. The next few images below are some of my favorites and were captured from Colter Bay and Leeks Marina which are on located south of Yellowstone. The sunset with the mountains and the lake was just amazing.
Of course, the biggest attraction in these parks is the wildlife. Yellowstone and The Grand Tetons are full of wildlife. This often causes major gridlocks as the tourist would literally stop up and down the roads whenever wildlife is spotted. Grant Village was full of Elks and during the mating season, you can just hear their bugling all over the park. The Bison were also quite a treat to capture. I was fortunate enough to capture these far from all the tourists. Below is a slideshow of the wildlife I was able to capture.
Yellowstone is also famous for its many Hot Springs and Waterfalls.
Yellowstone and The Grand Tetons are just one of the most breathtaking places I have ever experienced. I look forward to returning once again and capturing more of its beauty. Below is the final slideshow of general images I captured during my time there. I hope you enjoy them and please support me and my work by making a purchase or buying me a cup of coffee or two. Thank You for stopping by!
