The first winter storm of the season filled the entire Jackson Hole valley with
thick clouds, rendering the Teton mountains invisible. As the storm subsided low clouds
began rising out of the valley while higher clouds moved quickly north. The
churning mass would expose and then hide brilliant sunbathed peaks of the Teton
Range. Shown above is the tumultuous
scene that morning.
From left to right can be seen a small part of Cloudveil Dome, the summits
of Nez Perce Peak, Middle Teton, and Grand Teton mountains, with Mount Owen
just partly visible through heavy clouds on the right.
