Snake River of Ice
Snake River Canyon, Targhee National Forest, Wyoming, 2014
Layers of snow and ice encase the banks at this bend of the Snake River between Hoback Junction and Alpine. Nothing about the making of this image was easy, from clamboring down from the road toward the river to postholing through deep snow to enduring a biting wind. As much as I wanted a closer view, I dared not venture onto the ice lest I become a permanent resident of the canyon. Photo © copyright by Greg Owens.
