The Tetons Know No Boundries

I have seen the Tetons in my dreams ever since I last visited, over 20 years ago. I had to go back to see if my dreams matched up to reality. The Grand Tetons surpassed anything I could have remembered or imagined, especially set against this snow covered landscape. The contrast of the small man-made fence set against the massive majestic mountains caught my eye. It made me think how you cannot fence in nature or keep it out, and you will never tame the wild west. But based on this image, the Tetons make you believe you can most certainly touch the sky. Photographed while riding on a country road, somewhere in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
