Over the years from reading one article or another, I had always been impressed by the rugged mountain peaks in this famous American National Park, so my wife and I decided that we really should make some sort of attempt to visit it while we were relatively so close – only about 1200 km (750 miles) to Grand Teton NP by road from our home in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. Because I am still working and don’t have a lot of vacation time to play with, we decided we would just have to make do with a six and a half day road trip.
The first two days were spent reaching Grand Teton NP’s next door neighbor (Yellowstone NP) and included a stop at the Little Bighorn National Memorial Monument east of Billings, Montana - where Custer and his US Cavalry troops met an untimely end in their battle with the local American Indian tribes. Because of the location of Grand Teton NP, and with us spending about two and a half days in the much larger Yellowstone NP, we ended up with only just over a day to see what Grand Teton had to offer before we had to make one long 12-hour day of driving to return home again.
It was a short visit, but this National Park more than met our expectations! We found Grand Teton NP to be not as busy as the more famous Yellowstone and it also has more spectacular views. However, for the pure variety of amazing and unique geological wonders scattered all over the place, I would have to say that Yellowstone NP comes out on top. It did not matter one way or the other to us, we had sunshine the whole time and when all things are taken into consideration, we really enjoyed every experience of this road trip!
- Pros:Stunning scenery no matter where you look
- Cons:It's small size and proximity to Jackson can lead to overcrowding at many locations
- In a nutshell:This is one amazing National Park that you should not miss!
