2012 Western Road Trip: Mormon Row

When Jason and I visited Yosemite National Park in 2010, we took advantage of a free photography workshop offered by Canon in partnership with the park. It was such a neat experience that opened up a new hobby for both of us. Admittedly, I don’t take pictures as much as I’d like to, and I know that the only way to become a better photographer is to take lots of pictures. Until I can make more time in my day-to-day life, I make the most of our trips for practice.

Given our interest in photography, we had read about Mormon Row in Grand Teton National Park. In the 1890’s, Mormon homesteaders established a community in Jackson Hole. What remains of these homesteads now make up the Mormon Row Historic District. This area of the park is big with photographers who come to take pictures of the barns with the impressive backdrop of the Tetons.

Jason and I spent about 20 minutes at the Moulton barn, just up until it started to rain. Here are some of our pictures:

I can’t remember now whose photos are whose. I do know that the outhouse pictures are all Jason. He took a series of them 🙂

While most people would complain about rain on vacation, it made our stay in Grand Teton even better. You can see one instance of this here, and you’ll see more soon…
