Towering over the beautiful landscape of Wyoming, is the epic and dramatic Grand Teton- a nearly 14,000 foot tall mountain of rock, snow, and ice.
Stretching for almost 40 miles, the Teton Mountain Range is one of the most famous and iconic mountain ranges in the United States. Reaching a maximum height of 13,775 feet at the tip of the “Grand Teton”(which literally translates to “large teat/nipple”), the Tetons stretch along Wyoming’s western border with Idaho.
Although only 10 miles south of nearby Yellowstone National Park, the region surrounding the Teton range consist of an entirely different landscape and ecosystem and has been protected as a National Park since 1929 (Hoover).
Known for its vibrant forests, crystal-clear lakes, and stunning mountain views, Grand Teton National Park is an absolute delight to visit, imbuing a sense of adventure and wonder into even the most mundane of activities. Here are my photos from my recent visit:
