The first time you see the Grand Tetons , they look like they will rip through the sky into the heavens above. They are so jagged and sharp looking like a sabertooth saw-blade carved of stone. Conversely, they are surrounded by such gentle beauty: mirror-like lakes, grassy marches, and rolling hills of dense forest that break out into an arid scrubland more reminiscent of the southwestern prairies which only serves to make them all the more surreal. Throw in a few moose, a herd of elk and a bald eagle and you have the making of a park to outshine even its famous neighbor to the north, Yellowstone.
Grand Teton National Park seems a most accessible place on first acquaintance and if driving along a park road and admiring their considerable beauty is what floats your boat, you are in luck. The truth is many visitors treat it as an appendage to Yellowstone and merely drive through it en route to Jackson,WY to the south. A stop by Jenny Lake will suffice for them as having been in the Grand Tetons. The truth is, you can barely leave your car and find some amazing vantage points from which to observe a sublime alpine splendor seen rarely. Short strolls around scenic lakes provide just enough exertion and nature as many need or desire. Much like Yellowstone, there is also formidable wildlife to be “hunted” down with camera in hand and hand on the wheel.
