A list of Photographers with reservations is posted at entry 91.

The "West Coast Organizing Committee" is extremely excited to bring this event to reality! Even more exciting are the "Guides" for this event. They are two of the Best photographers on WU and probably the most experienced on how to shoot the Tetons. We are talking about none other than Summer (CameraDiva) and Carl (Funhawg).

Please be on notice that the Hotels in Jackson WY are already filling up for next fall's vacations. We suggest that you make your reservations as soon as possible, you can always cancel without penalty but you can't put up a tent in the parking lot if you miss out on the reservations.

Tickler Itinerary Release- February 17, 2014

You do not have to go with a group and you can split off
and DIY, but you will be missing the knowledge of the
area by CameraDiva and Funhawg.



Weather Underground 2014 West Coast Grand Teton National Park Spectacular Adventure!!
Tour Guides: (will work for free if constant sounds of shutters clicking and squeals of joy are heard).

Funhawg-Carl-King of the Tetons who knows the best photo op locations
CameraDiva-Summer-Grand Teton National Park is her home away from the Ruby Mountains and responsible for keeping Funhawg in line.
Public Relations Coordinator- Duane Foss ‘Renosohill’-grand master of ceremony and bean counter and several others behind the scene.

Summary: Grand Teton National Park provides some of the most breathtaking scenic beauty in the world. The park is just north of Jackson Hole, Wyoming and is easily accessed along a major loop road that parallels the east side of the Teton Range. There are so many things to see and do in Jackson Hole and in the Grand Teton National Park so we are allowing plenty of time in the itinerary for people to drive around and use the pullouts to photograph as well as join us on any of the specific activities. Our base will be Jackson Hole, WY which offers fantastic restaurants and shopping galore, not to mention awesome western town photo ops.

2014 Overview Trip Dates:
Oct 2, 2014 (Thursday) Arrive in Jackson Hole, Wy

Oct 3 and Oct 4, 2014 (Friday and Saturday) Field Tour Dates with fellow photographers: Perfect time for fall colors and even some snow on the tops of the Tetons. Less crowds this time of year and more wildlife around.
Oct. 5 (Sunday) Day trip on your own to Yellowstone National Park or check out of hotel and go home.

Lodging: In Jackson Hole, Wy. Hampton Inn or 49er Inn and Suites?? A group rate has been secured at both hotels. Most of the folks are staying at the Hampton Inn. This place has a full breakfast and also many amenities. Both hotels have given us a fantastic price for a hotel room in Jackson Hole, Wy where the going rate is normally around $200 or more per night. Be sure to make your reservations early by calling either place and asking for the WEATHER UNDERGROUND group rates. Hotel numbers and reservation codes are listed in the heading of this blog. Please check the hotel's website for amenities - but you will have to call the hotel direct to receive the special WU rate. Everyone is responsible for making their own reservations and should have their reservation made by expiration date of the room block to ensure a room at this rate. Please let Duane know when you have made a room reservation by emailing him at foss@fossreno.com or RenoSoHill on WU mail. You can also put the information here on the blog and then all of your photo friends will know you are coming. Interested people will want to book early to ensure a room; people from all over the world come to Jackson Hole to visit the National Parks and hotels average 96% occupancy rates. Due to the room shortage, any available rooms are quite pricy if you don’t book way ahead.
Getting there: You may fly directly into Jackson Hole Airport (JAC) or drive in from the surrounding area. In the case that flights into Jackson are fully booked, Idaho Falls, ID is the next nearest airport (about 2 hours by car), followed by Salt Lake City, Utah (about 4 hours by car). If you fly into the area, you may wish to rent a car for the greatest flexibility or find a WU buddy to pick you up along the way.


National Park Pass: Each vehicle will need an National Park pass to get into the parks (everyone in the vehicle is covered by the one park pass) . You can pay a single $25 entry fee that will get you into the Teton National Park for 7 days. You can also buy an annual America the Beautiful park pass for $80 that will get you into all the parks in the nation for a year. Military members and persons with disabilities can get a free pass and seniors (over 62 yrs old) can get a lifetime pass for $10. More information can be found at: http://www.nps.gov/findapark/passes.htm

Draft Itinerary:

Oct 2 2014 Thursday:

Arrive in Jackson Hole. Sneak Preview: Afternoon Classic Barn shoot and informal dinner for those in town early enough.
P.M.
• Moulton / Mormon Row Barns: Located on Antelope Flats Road, two barns owned by the homesteading Moulton family, still stand today. The barns have become one of the iconic images of Jackson Hole with the Tetons rising up in the background.
• Dinner - casual dinner get-together for those who have already arrived in Jackson.

Oct 3 2014 Friday: Photo Tour with Funhawg and CameraDiva
A.M.
• Sunrise photo shoot- For early morning risers.
• Oxbow Bend -meet at Oxbow Bend to see breathtakingly beautiful aspen, pine and mountain reflections of Mt. Moran). Early morning is the best time to capture the glassy reflection in the Snake River that flows into the shape of an oxbow. Some choose to shoot from the parking lot while others will hike through the willows down to the water’s edge. Be considerate to not get in others photos as this is a photographer’s haven.
• Genny Lake loop- beautiful forest and lake reflections and majestic peaks of the Teton Range. Cathedral Group Turnout is a great spot to stop and enjoy the expansive views. Finish the loop by continuing to head south to the town of Moose where you can visit the Visitors Center, photograph the Snake River and you may see moose under the bridge next to the river.
• Lunch on your own.
P.M.
• Horse/Wildlife & Scenery Shoot-Spend the afternoon with Funhawg on a driving tour in search of wildlife and scenery shots.
• Walk-about with CameraDiva around Jackson Hole (option to Horse/Wildlife Scenery Tour)-if you’re not up for a wildlife tour, CameraDiva will be leading a walk-about around Jackson Hole for some town shots and shopping.
• Dinner-A Get Together Mixer in Jackson

Oct 4 2014 Saturday
: Photo Tour with Funhawg and CameraDiva
A.M
• Sunrise photo shoot at Genny Lake- for early morning risers, watching the sunrise on the peaks at Jenny Lake will be one of your favorite memories. At sunrise the mountains glow orange and reflect in the glassy mirror-like water providing an expanse that is hard to photograph even with a wide-angle lens
• Blacktail Ponds-- Blacktail Ponds overlook (pullout on the left just past Antelope Flats Road) for a scenic view of the Snake River and Tetons.
• Glacier View Turnout - Drive north 2 miles to Glacier View Turnout for majestic Teton views.
• Schwabachers Landing nature walk with Funhawg and CameraDiva Off the beaten path Schwabachers Landing nature walk. Incredible tree and mountain reflections on beaver dams and wildlife sitings. This is easily one of the most popular spots for photographers to capture the dramatic Tetons with a classic water reflection in the foreground. In years past bison have been known to be in the area and also moose will pop up in the marshy land on the other side of the pond.
• Snake River Overlook -Following the Schwabachers landing stroll, head north to the Snake River Overlook made famous by Ansel Adams. Adams used late afternoon light, which drops the mountains into shadow creating the reflection off of the s-curve of the Snake River. Ansel used clouds to balance out the exposure and lots of darkroom printing to bring out the details in the sky and the mountains. No matter how time has changed the view it is still one of the iconic views of the Tetons.
• Lunch- Lunch on your own. Recommendations: Jackson Lake Lodge: John D. Rockefeller financed the building of Jackson Lake Lodge and required that televisions wouldn't be placed in the rooms. You’ll see why once you see the breathtaking beauty out on the back deck. Willows between you and the mountains provides opportunity to spot moose and elk hiding out during the day.
P.M.
• Afternoon: Park touring on your own.
• Repeat of shooting the barns (Mormon row) with CameraDiva
• Dinner- Group Dinner in Jackson or Teton Village.

Oct 5 2014 Sunday:
Day trip to Yellowstone National Park or travel home –Visit Yellowstone on your own or travel home. Yellowstone is an easy all day trip from Jackson-the west side has most of the major park features including Old Faithful and spectacular colors and displays of hot springs accessed along easy boardwalks. Wildlife is more prominent on the east side of the park.

Hang around a few extra days - til October 8th and watch the eclipse from the high Wyoming skies - no pollution of any type including City Lights. You also won't need as much Zoom from your camera as will will be standing at 6,421 ft.

Summer is in Europe, I think she is taking classes on their pastries and other fine items that are just calories surrounded with frosting.

Time to finalize your plans to come to the Tetons - time is getting on the short side with less than 90 days to go and one of the room blocks expire in August. I'm betting that about 75 of WU's finest will be there and a couple of us not so gooders!

Be sure to post your info here so the numbers are correct and we have enough cookies to go around.....

Quoting 94. Feather3:

Iggy and Feather would like to attend; we need to know the deadline for reservations before we can commit, of course :)

The room block at the Hampton Inn expires on September 15 and the 49er expires August 1. It would be my advice to make your reservations now - you can always cancel them later. I would appreciate knowing your plans by Sept 1st, so we can plan the dinners etc

HarveyCreek (Brian), Molly, Kathy and I had a wonderful 4 day photo tour several weeks ago to the "banana belt" area around Brookings, Oregon. The weather was excellent and it was great fun. We are really looking forward to Jackson Hole trip this October. Keeping our fingers crossed for more good weather!

Carl:
There's a rumor you've planned a menu; Dutch oven baked spuds (3) times a day with Diva cookies for desert. Now, I've seen Montana horses react to Diva's baking, two jumped a fence and were never seen again. I, on the other hand, could use a little bounce in my step, so I'm anxious to try Diva's oatmeal cookies, however I'm allergic to your Idaho spuds!

I like my (Montana) steak thick'n juicy, medium-rare with a dash of Jack to wash it down. Please make a note, thx!

We will give you plenty of time - but don't take too long because folks are already thinking of the 2017 meet up!

From Doesiedoats

Subject: 2017 West Coast Meet Up
To: Kristina, Duane and Lori,

We just read an article on the web that indicates a total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017 to be visible
on the West Coast.
I know that's three (3) years out, but wouldn't it be great for a meet up during that time frame?
Now the kicker is, it will be visible on a very narrow band ranging from just North of Newport to
Lincoln City....how about Depot Bay for that particular meet up?
It would be a great photo opportunity AND it might even provide some rather interesting ocean
shots as well.
Thought I would pass it along to you folks who seem to be the movers and doers for that event.

Best regards,

Julia :)

Today we woke up to eight inches of snow, it clung to every branch, covered the few spring flowers that dared to bloom yesterday, frustrated Mimi who wants to be in the snow to play, gave me the opportunity to enjoy the winter wonderland and to take lots of photos.

Hello RenoSoHill,

This is Dave again from Silver Springs. The west coast drought is really something. I'm glad that during the summertime here, our area receives some rain from thunderstorms that develop after a hot day during the evening. It gets windy most of the time here during the spring and summer.

I thought you might like to see this video on the west coast drought.

Hello RenoSoHill,

Thank you for stopping by my blog. The wind has been blowing here in Silver Springs for that past couple of days over 55 miles per hour. I hope that we get some more precipitation soon in the form of rain or snow.

I like your photos of Grand Teaton. I have been to Grand Teaton and Yellowstone National Park many times. Both a wonderful vacation place. I always order a Grand Teaton Calendar every year from Abi.

Lets hope that the California and the Nevada drought will end soon.

Happy Holidays WU Photographers
by ColoradoKat

Oh, my, what a year it's been...
The good, the bad, the in-between,
But always soothing, always fine
Is picking up that camera of mine,
In search of what each new day offers
From the treasure trove of Nature's coffers...
Down this path or up this road...
The mountains are a mother lode!
Though last year it was out of reach,
This year I got to see Gold Beach!
The beach, the ocean, the food, the wine...
Will be favorite memories of mine!
The amazing photographers I met,
I never, ever will forget!
But, if I've met you or have not,
I love the photos that you've shot!
It's like a travelogue, you know,
To see all the places that you show...
The Americas and far beyond..
Far East, Down Under or Across The Pond!
I hope you like Colorado, too,
In the photos that I bring to you.
Now, as 2013 ends,
I have a wish for you, WU Friends!
I hope your Holidays this year,
Are full of love and joy and cheer,
And as 2013 is put to rest,
May 2014 bring you all the best!

Love your poem!!

Just got an email from Heidrun - they have the flights booked into SLC - and knowing her and Rudi, they will probably hike to Jackson-on the mountain tops!

I put this in the photo section, but I thought I'd
put it in here, as well, since it is a blog for
photographers.

Happy Holidays WU Photographers
by ColoradoKat

Oh, my, what a year it's been...
The good, the bad, the in-between,
But always soothing, always fine
Is picking up that camera of mine,
In search of what each new day offers
From the treasure trove of Nature's coffers...
Down this path or up this road...
The mountains are a mother lode!
Though last year it was out of reach,
This year I got to see Gold Beach!
The beach, the ocean, the food, the wine...
Will be favorite memories of mine!
The amazing photographers I met,
I never, ever will forget!
But, if I've met you or have not,
I love the photos that you've shot!
It's like a travelogue, you know,
To see all the places that you show...
The Americas and far beyond..
Far East, Down Under or Across The Pond!
I hope you like Colorado, too,
In the photos that I bring to you.
Now, as 2013 ends,
I have a wish for you, WU Friends!
I hope your Holidays this year,
Are full of love and joy and cheer,
And as 2013 is put to rest,
May 2014 bring you all the best!
