The full moon rose perfectly between Grand Teton (13,775′, 4198m) and Mt. Owen (12,928′, 3920 m), the highest mountains within the Cathedral Group, one summer’s evening while I was camping in the Cascade Canyon North Fork.
Amazingly, this experience was the second time I found myself unwittingly “in the right place at the right time” to see the full moon rise between two mountain peaks. I had been in the Western Arthurs Range in Tasmania’s Southwest National Park. View my photograph here.
Grand Teton National Park is located in northwestern USA just 10 miles (16 km) south of Yellowstone National Park. The jagged peaks of the Teton Range rise dramatically out of the Great Plains to an altitude of 13,800′ (4200m). Grand Teton’s pristinely preserved wilderness features valleys covered with Columbine and Indian Paintbrush wildflowers, raging mountain rivers and rugged, snow-covered peaks. The park is home to many different kinds of animals including grizzly bears, elk, moose and marmots. Due to its stunning beauty, Grand Teton National Park is one of America’s most popular national parks.
