Just south of Yellowstone is Grand Teton National Park, where the spectacular Teton Mountains jut abruptly from the valley floor with no gentle foothills. The Tetons are geologically young nine-million-year-old mountain range. Seven of the peaks exceed 3,600 metres, the highest Grand Teton is the state’s second highest peak at 4,197 metres.
These classic triangular peaks which stretch for fifty miles between Yellowstone and Jackson as every bit as dramatic as those of Yellowstone. A string of lakes are set at the foot of the mountains; beyond them lies the broad, sage bush covered Jackson Hole, broken by the winding Snake River. No road crosses the Tetons but routes that run along the eastern flanks offer stunning views at every turn.
