The park encompasses the Teton Mountain range, the 4,000-meter Grand Teton peak and the valley known as Jackson Hole. It’s a popular destination in summer for mountaineering, hiking, backcountry camping and fishing, linked to nearby Yellowstone National Park by the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Memorial Parkway.

Beside viewing some of the park’s wonderful wildlife, they took in Sylvan Lake. Known as the “crown jewel” of Custer State Park, Sylvan Lake offers picnic places, rock climbing, small rental boats, swimming and hiking trails. In Dave’s words: “We had never been to this beautiful lake surrounded by nice rock formations before. We enjoyed walking around the lake and watching people fishing for trout.”

DAVE BRUNER: Photo Gallery — Reminders Of The Past

Dave Bruner of Grand Forks is becoming well-known for his stunning landscape photography. Here, in his own words, Dave describes three recent shoots.

“Country Sunset”: “We had one of those beautiful sunsets this past week that North Dakota is known for. You also have to be lucky and be out there at the right time to see and capture it in a photo. This old, weathered wooden shed and tree tied the sky and composition together.

“Ford Tough”: “This classic 1948-50 Ford truck is no longer in service and is now resting on the prairie landscape of North Dakota. It had this yellow paint that is now faded with parts now covered in brown rust which gives a unique color scheme to the truck. Notice it also had a front pickup guard. I was fortunate to have some nice clouds in the sky to complete this image of this classic truck.”

“Country Roads & Old Farmsteads of the Past”: “Several images of some of the old farm buildings and other items that were left as a reminder of what once was thriving farmsteads on the Great Plains. I like to document some these places with images that are interesting subjects to me.”
