Welcome to Grand Teton National Park
The 12 imposing glacier-carved summits, which frame the singular Grand Teton (13,775ft), were designated a National Park in 1929. Much of the Snake River Valley was later donated to the park by John D Rockefeller, who acquired it through secret purchases.
And while your finger will cramp from taking so many photos of the peaks from this sublime river land, know that the scenery only gets more impressive the further into the mountains you go. Make time to take a hike through the fragrant forests past glistening alpine lakes to dramatic canyons blanketed with wildflowers.
