In The Elk Refuge

Sleeping Indian MonoReplacement5

Surely fishermen understand the experience of going to a familiar spot and have fish after fish land in the creel.  So it was that night at the Elk Refuge in Jackson Hole, when clouds materialized above the Sleeping Indian — the formation formally known as   Sheep Mountain, but so-called for obvious reasons.  The particular trick on this evening was that as the large clouds materialized behind the Sleeping Indian, the sun that illuminated them kept slipping behind clouds to the west.

The clouds were enormous, and spectacular.  We actually thought we had gotten the pictures we came for when we drove a few miles further up the dirt road.

Distant Jackson Peak — all the way across the valley from the Tetons — was similarly lit by this magical light.  And then we saw, from a different angle, how the clouds were lining up with the Sleeping Indian’s face and headdress.

This rendered the Tetons themselves perhaps the fourth most magnificent sight in the valley.

It was one of those nights.

There are evenings when people entertain themselves by watching television, or going online, or playing pinochle.  And then there are nights when, with a minimum of searching, entertainment can be had by simply driving along a road with your eyes open.

Throughout the summer, there have been a few bulls to be seen off in the distance.  And then there was the night when three came up close to the river, while a hundred yards away, a cow was to be seen with two calves.  That’s entertainment.

Driven Right To The Edge

Long ago, Native Americans would drive bison over cliffs, making it easier to kill them than throwing a lance from galloping horse.  Thankfully, no one was chasing these guys, and they pulled up just in time.  Leica M, Vario-Elmar-R 80-200.
