Scary Enough: The New Grand Teton Visitor Center

Landscape Arch

“Swift’s landscape looks as wild as any part of the park before it melts off into the cottonwood shade beyond it, and the wind and the birds whistle through much the same. […] Of course, close to the building there are places that have been tamed. One is a terrace on the meadow side of the building; it is but a minor stage for taking in the sight and smell of sage as it stretches across the clearing toward a wall of forest on the west and, beyond that, the raw force of the silver mountains hung across the horizon.”
