GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK (USA)

INTRODUCTION

The youngest of the Rocky Mountains, the Teton Range is a spectacular sight. Enhanced by glaciers, deep canyons, snowfields, and lakes, the range shoots up suddenly, with no foothills around it. The three Tetons—South, Middle, and Grand – lure casual tourists and serious climbers alike. Included in the park is the valley of Jackson Hole, home to deer and elk. Many other animals live along the wetlands of the Snake River. The park is south of Yellowstone National Park and just north of the town of Jackson. Grand Teton National Park is noted for its stunning mountain vistas, its shimmering alpine lakes and its abundant wildlife. Jackson is the closest town with many lodging options.
