Another one from the past treated in monochrome. This was one of those occasions, when you feel the stillness of everything around you including time. Not a ripple, not a sound. Mt. Moran with its Skillet Glacier in the background accompanied by the other Teton peaks in the Cathedral group, lording over the calm Colter Bay and her canoes felt otherworldly. I missed shooting the stars over this mirror like waters. Hopefully for the next visit.
Colter Bay on Jackson Lake is named after John Colter who was a member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition (1804–1806). Though party to one of the more famous expeditions in history, Colter is best remembered for explorations he made during the winter of 1807–1808, when he became the first known person of European descent to enter the region which later became Yellowstone National Park and to see the Teton Mountain Range. Colter spent months alone in the wilderness and is widely considered to be the first mountain man.
