What the West Wind Tells Me
One of the first photographers to stand on this spot in 1871 on Signal Mountain in what is now Grand Teton National Park was the pioneer photographer William Henry Jackson. His photographs, along with the paintings of Thomas Moran, were instrumental in convincing the Congress in 1872 to begin the creation of the world's first national park, Yellowstone National Park, immediately to the north of the Tetons. Grand Teton National Park was the 20th such park, created in 1929. This vantage point, part way up Signal Mountain offers one of the quintessential western landscapes.
My title for this work, coms from Debussy's set of Preludes for solo piano.
