Grand Teton National Park
Grand Teton National Park is 310,000 acres of serene wilderness only a few miles south of America’s oldest National Park, Yellowstone National Park. Lying just north of the old western town of Jackson Hole, Grand Teton National Park is named after Grand Teton, the tallest mountain in the Teton Range rising 7,000 feet above the Jackson Hole valley and dominating the spectacular skyline.
Back-dropped by jagged peaks and stunning mountain scenery, Grand Teton is home to meadows of colorful wildflowers, hundreds of pristine crystal clear alpine lakes, steep coniferous forests, sweeping vistas and starlit skies. Mount Moran reflects in the clear calm waters of the Snake River at Oxbow Bend, possible the most photographed scene in the park, even more spectacular as the colors turn to yellow and gold in the fall months. It is here you will have a high chance of seeing moose, river otters and bears.
Grant Teton National Park is a nature lover’s paradise over two hundred miles of trails for hiking or biking, mountaineering or searching out a quiet spot for trout fishing. Jackson Lake is the largest lake in the park, a glacial lake surrounded by towering mountain peak that invites visitors for fishing and boating. Escape to the Snake River for exceptional fly fishing or fun adventures riding the wild waters through the canyons. Get a glimpse of days gone by at the Mormon Row Historic District, a photographers delight of settlers homesteads set against the spectacular mountains. The less adventurous can explore the park on a scenic 42 mile loop that winds its way through fields of diverse wildlife with panoramic views of the Tetons, Jackson Hole and deep into Yellowstone National Park, past Jenny Lake’s spectacular lakes and waterfalls. As the snow blankets the mountains, the park opens up to awesome winter activities. Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are the best was to explore the park.
