The ghost of Ansel Adams. As @thee1ginger and I approached The Grand Tetons, next on our list of places, I thought a lot about the history of the area and the photographers that explored the area before us and what it must of been like to discover something so majestic and new. So when I saw the Grand Teton mountains with my own eyes, I swear the spirit of Ansel Adams himself took over, not only my camera, but also my perspective on the area, and the way I thought about its rich history. I thought about how cool it would have been to be a photographer like he was, with a passion for a subject like he had. I thought about how lucky he was to have that type of lifestyle and to have the type of vision he had. Then I realized, I was out there trying to follow in the footsteps of the greats. I was standing in the very spots he once stood and taking photos of the same mountains he once saw with his own lens. A truly inspiring moment amongst some of the country’s greatest mountains. #travelzoo #tzooroadtrip #👫🚌

Glacier National Park was like something out of the movies. After tons of driving and lots of questionable turns and strange weather we finally arrived at Glacier National Park. This place was so remote and desolate, it was really an amazing experience to feel somewhat isolated in these massive mountains in a remote corner of Montana, hidden away a from the rest of the world. The only sign of life in the area was a small bar, with roughly 4 of the locals playing pool while arguing about what real country music was. One of them kindly bought us a PBR and shared some stories of the area. After a couple of beverages, we said our goodbyes and made way to what seemed like a completely abandoned Rv Park, with the best views you could ever ask for. As night fell, the elk came out to feed on the grass, and the clouds whipped around in the sky. A moment and place I will never forget. #travelzoo #tzooroadtrip #👫🚌
