Oxbow Bend, Teton Mountain Range, Wyoming.    Peaceful~

Peaceful Oxbow Bend, WY.

Oxbow Bend is a loop or bend in the Snake River, which has been cut off from the main river section.  Its name came from the shape of this section of the river, which resembles an oxbow used by pioneers.  Oxbow Bend lies east of the Teton Mountains in Wyoming,

I’ve always felt peaceful in the mountains and by water.   The Tetons are some of my favorite mountains.  They are spectacular because they rise directly out of the floor of Jackson Hole.  There are no foothills at the base of these mountains.  Geological forces of heat and energy nearly 10 million years ago, forced the Tetons’ rocky summits toward the sky.  They are a sight to behold.  Huge craggy, granite pinnacles rise almost above your head.  You feel close enough to touch them…

Soaring and majestic, reflected in the water, it’s here I feel peace.

Have a peaceful night.
