Oxbow’s Bend

This Week’s Image – Oxbow’s Bend

What’s in the name? Oxbow Bend is a “bend” or looping meander of the Snake River which has been cut off from the main channel. It resembles the oxbow used by the western pioneers. Or at least that’s what I’m told! This was one of my favorite spots in the Grand Teton National Park. Well, each one I went to was a favorite but you can see why! For some reason these mountain peaks remind me of those background paintings you see at dinosaur exhibits at a museum. Or am I crazy?
