Grand Tetons in Spring: Wildlife Focused
May 21-27, 2023 Through Wildside
Women's Only Trip
Co-Leader: Jennifer Leigh Warner
Physical Demand: Moderate - Will be working at altitudes with elevation over 6,000+ ft. Walking surfaces can be uneven, sloped trails with tripping hazards of up to half a mile. Changing seasons can bring below freezing temperatures with potential snow and ice.
Springtime in the Tetons is flush with beauty and photographic opportunities. With such a shortened growing season, both flora and fauna burst forth with energy and vigor to make the most of the warmth and food sources that appear. Young babies are welcomed into the world about this time as the wildflowers carpet the landscape. Elk, bison, moose, mule deer, and pronghorn are just a few of the commonly seen species in the area. Both black bears and grizzlies bring their cubs out of hibernation, and, with a bit of luck, we will capture them foraging and learning the “bear” necessities.
With so much to see, you will be happy for the long days in the field. Evening will be reserved for rest, relaxation, and image critiques as requested.
