    It happened when I was taking a photo of the purple sky and two stretching lakes across the Bonney Pass in the Teton Mountains. I suddenly knew that this wonderful place had transformed me into a better person and a more confident woman. It took some courage to get to that place. Many months before, I had some fear and reluctance when submitting a lengthy application for a counsellor job at the Teton Valley Ranch Camp in Dubois, Wyoming. My stomach had that sinking feeling that I would be…

    It’s an incredible experience. We had worked on the logistics for months, doing training hikes, planning flights, and reserving campsites, but that first view really made everything that went into the trip worth it. Things like that really can’t be captured in a picture. No matter how stunning a photograph of the Grand Canyon is, it’s nothing compared to standing on the edge of a hundred foot drop and just taking in the hugeness of one of the most famous landmarks in the world. Even my little…

    to be fascinated with Yellowstone. People in the East had believed that tales of geysers and waterfalls weren’t real but instead of handing them written evidence, Jackson showed them real proof that they existed and photographs were the undeniable proof. The work that Jackson did with the Hayden expedition went further than just taking photographs of the landscape of Yellowstone.
