54 Pristine Vista

Today I visited the most beautiful place in the United States. Well, at least I went there for a few hours by way of a mental painting excursion.
A few years ago in late September, we visited the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park -- a gorgeous time of year to visit. Down the path from us and tucked further back in the reeds was a moose feasting in the marshes. We could see it from the path but kept our distance. It was amazing to be so close to the wilds of nature, though some people get aggressively close.

I love the play of the oranges against the soft blues of this pristine sky and water. The majestic peaks just lift the spirit. Can't you just feel the brisk air on your face as you stand in awe looking at this fabulous sight.
