I recently finished a trip traveling to 20+ national parks in search of fall colors. It was unfortunate to say the least to hear of the park closures in the midst of beautiful fall colors.

When I got to Grand Teton National Park having just driven a few hours from Banff National Park, Canada, I was hopeful that the parks would open in time. Sadly they did not. Mormon Row, however, was a short 1-mile hike in from the barricade, so I decided to do the early morning hike in. This location is often called the most photographed location in North America, and I'm not sure if it's Mormon Row or Maroon Bells, but in any seeing tons of photographers yelling out to each other about being in their shots is quite the standard sight. It was quite nice having the entire place to myself. The quietness and solitude of that morning is sure not to repeat itself until the next park closure.

All of the below images were shot on the Canon EOS 6D with the Canon 17-40 L. Kind of a side note, but I recently reviewed this camera with 10+ months of hands-on experience, check it out here and let me know what you think: 6dreview.com (external link)

Great shots! 20+ national parks...I want that life. :) I checked out your link to the "August" visit, VERY nice. I'm impressed with how it appears you were basically standing in the EXACT same spot for all three photos. Do they have that specific spot marked, "Photogs, stand HERE" or something? ;-)a

I wish there was a marked spot! : ) Actually I referenced on my iPhone the August shot and took a series of high-ISO images to get the same position, angle and focal length! : )
