Places in Wyoming
Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks
There’s nowhere in the world quite like Greater Yellowstone. From its raging geysers to howling wolf packs, the land stands alone as one last pocket of a wild, primeval America. Snapshot In many ways Yellowstone and Grand Teton couldn’t be more different.
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.
Technically this is Wyoming, but you'll have a hard time believing it. With a median age of 32, this Western town has evolved into a mecca for mountain lovers, hard-core climbers and skiers, easily recognizable as sunburned baristas. The upswing of being posh and popular? Jackson is abuzz with life: trails and outdoor opportunities abound.
