This shot works best from early June through early October. The above photo was taken in early June from right at the rivers edge, about 100 yards north of the main parking area. Only three photogrpahers were present on that dreary overcast morning.
Most fall shots are taken from near the parking area. This location gives you the sweeping Snake River foreground most people enjoy. The famous golden hues of the Oxbow Bend aspen, attract hundreds of photographers in early October. Oxbow Bend is the "Old Faithful" of Teton fall color.
