Located in northwestern Wyoming, Grand Teton National Park protects spectacular mountain scenery and a diverse collection of wildlife. The central feature of the park – the Teton Range — is a 40-mile-long mountain front rising from the valley floor some 6,000 feet. The towering Tetons were formed from earthquakes that occurred over the past 13 million years along a fault line. The jagged range includes its signature peak – Grand Teton, 13,770 feet (4,198 m) – and at least twelve pinnacles over 12,000 feet (3,658 m). Seven lakes adorn the base of the range, and more than 100 alpine lakes dot the backcountry.
Elk, moose, mule deer, bison, and pronghorn are commonly found in the park. Black bears roam the forests and canyons. Grizzlies range throughout more remote portions of the park. More than 300 species of birds can be observed in the park. Keep an eye out for bald eagles, peregrine falcons, and trumpeter swans. You will come face to face with protected wildlife, flora and fauna, and vistas of unmatched grandeur. These natural wonders that will leave you speechless. Enjoy.
