Everything is grand in Grand Teton National Park: majestic peaks, regal wildlife, lake reflections and unmatched opportunities for solitude. Find exhilarating adventure and tranquil solitude in this vast park.
Some of Ansel Adams’ most famous black-and-white photographs were taken in this park in Wyoming. Try to recreate his iconic shot of a bend of the Snake River. Whatever your photography skill range, pick up a set of recommendations from the visitor center to learn the best times at the best spots for the best photos.
Mornings are great for observing the park and taking photographs. Capture bright orange colors on the tops of the mountains as the sun rises. Find the T. A. Moulton barn, a 1913 Mormon farmstead, one of the most photographed barns in the U.S. Take an early morning drive from the National Elk Refuge northward into the park to see elk or possibly moose grazing.
The park also has mule deer, bison, bear and soaring birds of prey. Remember that animals can become aggressive and move more quickly than you can, so follow park requirements for minimum safe distances from wildlife and specific rules for traveling in bear country.
Hike or bike some of the more than 200 miles (320 kilometers) of trails, several leading to beautiful lakes and glacial ravines. A long flat bicycle trail parallels the mountains. Camp or use the park lodge facilities at several locations for overnight stays and meals with great views. Fish and swim in several reflective lakes.
Grand Teton National Park is just south of Yellowstone National Park. Purchase a multi-park pass and plan a multi-day trip to enjoy both areas. Some of the park’s facilities are staffed only during the summer. However, the main highway through the park is open year-round and the inner Teton Park Road remains open in winter for non-auto access: biking and rollerblading when the roads are dry and snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and winter hiking when a beautiful blanket of snow covers the ground.
