Autumn in the Tetons

Grand Tetons (9/19/19) Alena Nicholas

Autumn has arrived early in the Tetons at Jackson, Wyoming.

California color spotter Alena Nicholas is photographing Grand Teton National Park and sent these images.

She’s been photographing the Jackson area for the past week and the change of color has evolved rapidly from lime to yellow and, today, to orange and red.

Daytime temperatures there are in the 60s, overnight temps in the low 30s. That’s a good combination to develop vibrant color.

At the beginning of the week, about 25% of the aspen and cottonwood had begun showing color. Now, it’s about 40%.

Autumn happens quickly in the Tetons.
