Trying to find a Location from this Picture

Postby thelaughingmusician » Thu Nov 10, 2011 6:31 pm

Hello,

This picture of a beautiful location (I'm assuming its somewhere in North America) is located in my church, and I wanted to figure out where it was taken. I'm hoping that someone here could identify it for me. Thanks!

(sorry for the poor picture quality, I could probably get a better one if it's just impossible to see)

Little hard to make out the shape of the mountains in the background, but it may be Jenny Lake with the Tetons in the back. Not sure.

A possible interesting fact about your picture. The Canadian and American railroad companies back in the early 1900s used to send artists to the west to do portraits of areas where the railroads would cross. The hope was that the pictures brought back east would inspire tourists to use the train to visit these beautiful areas. This picture looks like those promotional art. Some of that art is now pretty valuable. Do a little research...
