Frosted Trees Along the Snake River

Despite a lack of wildlife to be found around the area, I was still able to make great opportunities as they arose.

Up in Gros Ventre Campground in Grand Teton National Park are a couple of Great Horned Owls with two owlets tucked away in a tree. The owlets naturally are drawing all the attention as they occasionally peek their heads out to see what all the commotion is about.
