Few landscapes in the world are as striking and memorable as that of Grand Teton National Park. Rising above a landscape rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton Range is a stunning testament to the power of the geologic processes that formed the range. The mountains, valleys, lakes, rivers, and skies of the park are home to diverse and abundant forests, wildflowers, and wildlife. The park also has a rich cultural history seen in the old homesteads and cattle ranches to photograph and explore. Surrounded by the iconic mountains of Grand Teton National Park, you can explore over two hundred miles of trails and enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.
