Take Flight: A Trip to the Tetons

By Taylor Barrett

On Sunday, July 21st, I joined my friends Holden and Alexa on a long-awaited journey down to Jackson Hole––with Holden flying us over Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. This was easily one of my top adventures, with views of Jackson Lake, the Teton Range, Yellowstone Lake, and of course, Grand Prismatic Spring.

Along the way, I took photos from one of my favorite perspectives: in a small airplane filled with close friends. Something about this atmosphere puts me in an ideal mindset to capture everything that I’m seeing and taking in. On the way home, I decided to shoot aerial footage of the Tetons, and the magnitude of the mountain range really shows from almost 12,000ft up.

When you’re in an airplane and the landscape gets smaller and smaller the higher you get, it’s funny how big the world becomes.
