Jerry - a moment in time [...] (Chicago, United States) on 21 June 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Snake River and Teton Range, a mountain range of the Rocky Mountains with dominating Mount Moran (12,605 feet, 3,842 m)

Jackson Hole and the Tetons have been the setting for a number of films, including John Wayne's movie acting debut in The Big Trail in 1930 and Shane in 1953. Mount Moran and the surrounding mountains were used as a backdrop for the lake/swamp setting in the original series of Land of the Lost (1974 TV series).

On November 21, 1950, a C-47 cargo plane owned by the New Tribes Mission crashed on Mount Moran during a storm, killing all 21 on board. A rescue party organized by Paul Petzoldt located the wreckage on November 25, but the extreme location of the crash made it impossible to recover the plane or the bodies. The wreckage remains on the mountain today, but the Park Service discourages direct climbs to the site.
