Your jaw might drop the first time you see the Teton Range rising above the Jackson Hole valley floor. With no foothills to get in the way, you'll have a close-up, unimpeded view of magnificent, jagged, snowcapped peaks. This massif is long on natural beauty, dominated by the 13,770-foot Grand Teton. Before your eyes, mountain glaciers creep down 12,605-foot Mount Moran. Large and small lakes gleam along the range's base. Many of the West's iconic animals—elk, bears, bald eagles among them—call this park home.
