Oxbow Bend

This past summer, my husband and I took off on a 3-week journey through The Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, and Banff, Canada.

This image is of the Snake River with Mount Moran and its reflection. The area is a great place to see wildlife and just hang out and have a picnic.

The shape or bend in this area gets its name from the U-shaped collar that is placed around an ox’s neck before a plow is attached. Although the name may not sound majestic, there are few places in these United States that you will find more tranquil or scenic.
