Introducing Grand Teton National Park
It’s hard to stop gawking at the jagged granite spires of the Teton Range, the centerpiece of spectacular Grand Teton National Park. Twelve glacier-carved summits rise above 12, 000ft, crowned by the singular Grand Teton (13, 770ft). The park is less crowded and more intimate than neighboring Yellowstone, offering boundless opportunities to get off the beaten track. Numerous hiking trails wind through alpine scenery, past rushing streams and around translucent lakes that mirror the soaring peaks. Bear, elk and moose roam this 40-mile-long range; the chance of spotting wildlife is good.
