Best scenic turnouts on Hwy 191 in the Tetons

Heading north to Yellowstone from Jackson, I'd like to take Hwy 191 along the Snake River one way and then the Teton Park Road a few days later on my return to Jackson. Which of the seven scenic turnouts listed on the map along the Snake would provide the best photo ops? Will the lighting be okay around 8 in the morning? I just have a point and shoot with a good optical zoom and don't want to spend more than a few minutes at any of the turnouts since we have to tour the Old Faithful area and be in Cody by that night.

They are pretty close together, I'd just decide while en route. Or simply stop at each, take photos and move one.

One other thing. You should take pictures of the Moulten (sp?) Barn. Here's a link to an itinerary for the Tetons we put together. Look at the first three paragraphs and it will tell you where the barn is. You get the very cool barn with the Tetons in the background.

The cathedral group will appear more dramatic from the more southerly vantage points along the road - though none of the spots are bad.

Hopefully you also have a good wide angle lens for these pictures.

Al and Sue - Thank you, thank you, thank you for the great itinerary for a visit to Grand Teton National Park.

I generally love to plan for our trips....but in this case, we will only have one day in Wyoming and I haven't been able to focus on what to do for our one day. Your itinerary solved the problem. Like you, I love to photograph beautiful scenery and your day provides plenty of opportunities. We're also hoping to see some moose - you told us where we might see some.

Thanks for all your help.
