Grand Teton
A Photographic Journey

by Henry H. Holdsworth

published by Farcountry Press

  • As a resident of one of the most photographed places in America, local award-winning photographer Henry H. Holdsworth has captured the essence of Grand Teton National Park with his camera, as an artist would with palette and brush. From the Tetons' dramatic seasons that blanket the landscape with cold and snow and then warm it again with a splendid rainbow of wildflowers, to wildlife large and small that endure the area's fickle weather, to the park's crowning glory - the rugged peaks of the Teton Range towering above Jackson Hole Valley, awash with alpenglow - Holdsworth has painted this mystical, wild place beautifully with his lens. A biologist as well as a photographer, Holdsworth is driven to not only capture and preserve that perfect moment, but to also bring a greater appreciation of nature and its preservation to others. His beautiful images are accompanied by informative, and often entertaining, captions drawing on his background in biology and his decades of personal experiences in the park.

Grand Teton
A Photographic Journey

A pair of trumpeter swans makes a rare summer appearance on the beaver ponds at Schwabacher�s Landing. Hunted to near extinction in the early 1900s, the isolated lakes and rivers of the Yellowstone Ecosystem provided a safe haven for the few remaining birds. Although still listed as a threatened species in the lower forty-eight states, these majestic birds can be found nesting on the National Elk Refuge and several small lakes and ponds in the valley.

A sign of days gone by, an old cowboy boot rests in a cabin window at the Elk Ranch. In its heyday from around 1908 to 1928, the Elk Ranch was the largest cattle operation in the valley encompassing over 3,600 acres. It was sold in 1928 to the Snake River Land Company, owned by John D. Rockefeller, and was included in the original portion of land that would become Grand Teton National Park in 1929.

Grizzly Bear 399 and her cubs wander through a meadow in Grand Teton National Park. Grizzlies most typically have two cubs and often a single cub at a time, with three cubs being far less common. Bear 399�s fame from having three sets of triplets in a row is rarely seen. Several weeks after this photograph was taken, one of the two darker cubs became separated from its mother, most likely due to an encounter with another bear. This cub was subsequently adopted by its half sister, Bear 610, who was then four years old with two spring cubs of her own. She never seemed to miss a beat adding a third cub to her entourage and raising it for the next two years. Cub adoption among grizzlies is rare but has been previously documented on several occasions.
