Trips: Teton Winter 2010

 A week of skiing in Jackson Hole allowed a few opportunities to sneak away to photograph in my favorite mountain range.  The snow was deep and there was not a lot of great light but there were still a few good opportunities, including the lunar eclipse.   Here are a few images when the clouds parted, including a few shots of the moon settting over the Tetons shortly after the lunar eclipse.
