Yellowstone National Park sits just north of the iconic Grand Teton National Park and are some of the most visited national parks in the USA. One of the most beautiful times to photograph these parks is when most of its visitors are asleep! The beauty of Grand Teton National Park includes the rolling hills along Mormon Row and the backdrop of Grand Teton, Mount Owen, and Teewinot which make this national park awe inspiring to photograph. Additionally, Yellowstone National Park is a true experience that everyone should enjoy at least once (if not many more times) in their lifetime. The abundant wildlife and the gorgeous landscapes of Lower Yellowstone Falls, Great Prismatic Spring, and the geysers throughout the national park are some of nature’s most amazing wonders inside the Yellowstone Caldera. These beautiful areas make this astrophotography workshop an incredible opportunity!
