My husband and I were driving through the valley at the base of the Tetons when I realized what a beautiful scene was in the foreground. We stopped and I was able to get a series of photos and sketches. This scene was one of my favorites because it had a sense of majesty and peace. There were both horses and mules grazing with wildflowers in abundance.
