SEASONS

The view point near the top of the Signal Mountain road is a good place for a panoramic view of the Teton valley at sunset or sunrise. The Wyofoto panorama you see above, was taken from the Signal Mtn overlook. The road is only open to car traffic during the summer. Coyotes and waterfowl are often seen at the ponds just south of the mountain, which can be reached on foot. In spring, blue grouse are often seen near the overlook.

TIMES

Sunrise and sunset are best for wildlife work. Sunrise is best for landscape shots. Dress warmly, it can be windy and cold at the look out point. The image seen above is a two shot panorama made at 50mm focal length on a full frame DSLR.
