Our bus arrived in Jackson, Wyoming in the middle of the night. It was too dark to see anything, but I knew from the itinerary that we must be in the airport parking lot. We stumbled around trying to gather our warm clothes and camera gear without waking the other passengers. Half an hour and a long dirt road later, a taxi dropped us off at a nondescript trail head in the middle of Teton National Park. We raced up the trail, but as the stars faded and the world took on a deep blue hue it became clear we weren't going to make it to the lake for sunrise. Neither of us said anything. We were too tired. Too frustrated. All that faded away as we scrambled up the last section of boulders and the lake came into view. It wasn't what we had wanted. But at that moment, it was everything we needed.
