GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK
They are the soaring stars of the Rocky Mountains. The jagged peaks of Grand Teton National Park tower more than a mile above the Jackson Hole valley located in northwestern Wyoming south of Yellowstone National Park and just north of the town of Jackson.
Photograph them from Schwabacher’s Landing, one of America’s most spectacular viewpoints. Hike to high-country lakes and waterfalls that surround them. And if you have the energy to climb them, contact Exum Mountain Guides for information on how to scale the grandest peaks in the Rockies. The view from the summit of the Grand Teton will stay with you for a lifetime.
The park offers all those activities and much more. There’s boating, canoeing and kayaking on Jenny Lake. You can float the Snake River that runs north-south through the valley. Fish for lake or cutthroat trout in the
park’s clear waters. Meet the challenge of a mountain bike trail. Enjoy the colorful fields of wildflowers and keep your eyes open for the park’s wide variety of wildlife – moose, pronghorn, elk, black and grizzly bears, bald eagles, gray wolves, bison and coyotes.
QUITE A RIDE
In just nine minutes, the Jackson Hole Aerial Tram lifts you 4,000 feet to the top of Rendezvous Mountain (10,450 feet) for a stunning 360-degree view of the national park and the valley below. Build in time for a mountain top day hike and return to the valley floor for fine dining in one of Jackson Hole’s many restaurants. The city of Jackson is a bustling center of commerce, art and entertainment, with galleries, shops and visitor centers to engage you.
The John D. Rockefeller Memorial Parkway connects Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. It’s named for the conservationist and philanthropist who made significant contributions to several national parks, including Grand Teton. The Colter Bay RV Park and Headwaters Campgrounds & RV provide great camping experiences in the park.
