The dramatic, rugged peaks of the Teton Range virtually erupt from the flat plains and Snake River valley, creating a landscape that at times appears to be an illusion. Photographers and artists attempt to capture the majesty and breathtaking views, but their results never fully convey the experience of standing at the Snake River overlook with the entire range spread before you or being on the shore of Leigh Lake, looking straight up from the base of Mount Moran.  Click here to see the full Grand Teton Natl Park travel guide on Travel42 »

Most of the 40-mi-/65-km-long, 15-mi-/24-km-wide valley of Jackson Hole lies within Grand Teton National Park, which is framed by the town of Jackson to the south and connected to Yellowstone by the Rockefeller Parkway to the north. The western half of the park is covered by the rugged peaks of the Teton Range erupting from the landscape, and the eastern edge is defined by the Snake River and expansive sagebrush flats.  Click here to see the full Grand Teton Natl Park travel guide on Travel42 »

Grand Teton almost didn't become a national park. The saga began in the late 1800s. Yellowstone was created in 1872, and there was interest in protecting the area south of the park. The Teton Forest Reserve was created by the U.S. Congress in 1897, and for the next 25 years the debate raged about including the Tetons as part of Yellowstone. Horace Albright, the superintendent of Yellowstone was for it, many local ranchers were against it, and every attempt at a bill failed.   Click here to see the full Grand Teton Natl Park travel guide on Travel42 »

For an overview of the park's offerings, drive the 43-mi/70-km scenic loop. From Moose, drive north along Teton Park Road, and then east at Jackson Lake Junction to Highway 26/89/191 at Moran. Return south to Moose along the Snake River. Overlooks and turnoffs provide interpretive information on everything from how the mountains were created to the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem to park history, and each one is worth the time. Traffic is heaviest from midmorning until early evening, and much of the Teton Park Road closes in winter.   Click here to see the full Grand Teton Natl Park travel guide on Travel42 »
