“When I returned from 18 months of teaching and traveling around Asia, I packed my belongings, my dog and a friend in my Nisaan Xterra and headed out to move from Oregon to Colorado, stopping in the middle to visit Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and nearby Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. This image was taken on a hike in the Tetons, which quickly won my heart as one of my favorite places in the USA for it’s stunning landscapes, abundant wildlife and breathtaking mountain views.”
