Artist's Description

Taken with a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS and a Canon 28-135mm lens.

Taken at Oxbow Bend Wyoming..USA.

The Oxbow Bend pullout is just one mile east of Jackson Lake Junction on the US Highway 26/89/191. It is on the way to Yellowstone, and is a great stop if you are just touring Grand Teton as well. An oxbow bend in a river is formed when the river meanders, or curves sharply, due to erosion of the bank from water flow. After a long period of time, the meander becomes very curved, and the water course widens and gets shallower. The slow-moving water provides habitat for fish including suckers and trout that are food for river otters, ospreys, bald eagles, American white pelicans and common mergansers. You can look for swimming beavers and muskrats, and even the moose that browse on willows at the water’s edge. Elk occasionally graze in the open aspen groves uphill to the east.
