A flight to Denver Colorado, a 5 hour drive to Togwotee Mountain Pass, USA at an altitude of 9767ft made for some spectacular scenary, but also made for the worst altitude sickness EVER. One by one our party fell ill, only I remained standing. I went out on Christmas Day, took various shots including this one from the car, I also took a video diary of the trip for everyone in bed. I should really dig it out as I remember they wern’t happy with my jolly commentary. Only after I got stuck in the snow did I begin to feel exceptionally ill. The trip was immediately cut short. In this shot The Grand Tetons.

Canon 10D, 70-200mm at 135mm, f/9.5, 1/90 sec, ISO 200. No filters used and mounted on the car door. A small amount of dust and scratches removed in photoshop.

This shot is also available from a photobook collection called Rural Mementos by redtree.me

    LOL!! Were you as green as the snow is white?!! And you wonder why the others weren’t happy that you did a video diary of them!! lol! It is a wonder they didn’t scalp you – or were they too ill?!! And yet, surprisingly so, they rescued you when you got stuck!!! Or did they?!! lol!!
    Fantastic photography D, as always!! You have been around the world, aye?!!! :)))
    and stirred up how many people???
    LOL!!

  • Hiya V. I was so ill, while I was eating carbs no one else was that’s why I coped until I got stuck. Everyone was so ill, A very nice dude helped me get the car out of the snow, by then I had no energy left. I stayed in bed for a day after that. I did however manage to get to old faithful, took some terrible shots, felt like death warmed up, was promptly sick and then the next day we left for home. Cut the 4 week holiday down to 5 days. Cheers for the comment though.
