Wow! Elk, and Lots of Them!

It has been a while since my last post on my original Best of the Tetons site. After moving to Loveland, CO, I have been busy adding new posts and pages on my new site at MikeJacksonPhotography. It has been over a year since we moved to Colorado. I’ve mentioned numerous times that I was about ready to shut Best of the Tetons down. That’s getting closer now.

It’s ELK time here in Colorado, but here’s some Teton elk info:

If you are in the Tetons in September and October, look for elk at Windy Point, around Jenny Lake and String Lake. A big bull commonly referred to as “Fabio” can historically be seen near Signal Mountain Lodge. Other elk are seen fairly often around Willow Flats. In the Tetons, you better be out EARLY! They move back into the safety of the shadows and trees at first light.

Numerous NEW Colorado Elk Posts at Mike Jackson Photography

Elk in Rocky Mountain National Park are not hunted. As a result, they are much easier to photograph. RMNP visitors are able to view and photograph elk while going about their fall rut. Elk are a big draw here. In fact, I bump into a lot of photographers here during the elk rut that I often used to see in the Tetons.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been going to RMNP as often as I can. WOW! I’ve created numerous new elk related posts at Mike Jackson Photography If you like elk, you should love each of the new pages. Note: I’ve included links to the new elk pages below the new few teaser photos.
The photos above are being included as a “sampler” of what you might see if you view the pages linked below.

The NEW Best of the Tetons section at my new site: This section contains some of my favorite and most important pages from the old site. It’s SO important that you sign up at the new site because the information on the old site is getting ready to be deleted.
Best of the Rockies section at my new site. As I have time, I will be adding more and more content to this section. Worth noting here…Mike Jackson Photography contains a WIDE VARIETY of subject matter. For me it’s much like getting a new box of 64 Crayons after being confined to mostly posts about the Tetons using only a box of only 12 colors. After 36 years in Jackson, I can say now that it was a good move at a exact perfect time!
Lastly, BlueHost, the company that stores this site, recently migrated the contents to a new server. In the process, the IP addresses didn’t get updated and the site returned Forbidden 403 errors for a few days. I am sorry readers had to go through that. It’s always frustrating. This is all the more reason to start viewing my new sites. I keep getting subtle “messages” telling me it’s time to close the old site! If you start seeing “Page Not Found” on some of your Bookmarked pages, that would be a good indication I deleted large sections of the old site. Simply type and you will be redirected to the new Best of the Tetons section. It has been a great ride at this site, and thanks to all of the support and subscribers over the years. All you have to do is click the SUBSCRIBE button to continue with me moving forward! MJ,

Front Range Critters

Important News!

It has been almost a year since Darla & I sold our home in Jackson Hole and moved to Loveland, CO. Most readers should already know I have been working on two related sites and have been more or less neglecting this site.

On or around June 30, 2023, I plan on deleting ALL OF MY POSTS & PAGES at the old Best of the Tetons site.

This will save around $200 per month and allow a bit more time to work on the new sites. Paul Gore helped pay the expenses for this site from July to December last year, but I have been paying for it for the past six months. Without the income from my tour business, I am finding the expense to be a drain on our budget.

Archived Feature Posts

For the next couple of weeks, you should be able to view and print many of the pages from the old site. Click the link above and take advantage of the pages while they still exist!

This will likely be the last email / post you receive from me at this site,

so please take a minute and sign up to follow my new site. Click the button below!

Elk in Velvet, Great Blue Herons, and More!

I’ve been busy here in Loveland. This page shows three of the recent pages I created at Mike Jackson Photography. Hopefully, you will enjoy all of them!
Things are heating up in Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park. Grizzly 399 showed up recently with a large new cub of the year. I hear there were numerous bear sightings this year. Bear jams have been huge. Some people managed to get wonderful photos, however, I hear getting shots takes a lot of luck and persistence. Elk in GTNP should be moving across the sage flats, but most of the largest bulls usually leave early and are out of sight. The Moose-Wilson Road is mostly closed, but will be open over the Memorial Day Weekend. The Snake River Bridge near Wilson is under construction this year and is causing major traffic snarls and delays. Plan ahead!
I am posting this post on Best of the Tetons just before the Memorial Day Weekend. If you are in town, check out the Saturday morning parade as part of Old West Days. Also look for events and times on the JH Chamber of Commerce web site.
