Grand Teton National Park
Located in northwestern Wyoming, Grand Teton National Park protects spectacular mountain scenery and a diverse collection of wildlife. The central feature of the park is the Teton Range, a 40-mile long mountain front rising from the valley floor some 6,000 feet. The jagged range includes its signature peak Grand Teton at 13,770 feet and at least twelve pinnacles over 12,000 feet. Seven morainal 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, while grizzlies wander throughout more remote portions of the park. More than 300 species of birds can be observed including bald eagles, peregrine falcons and trumpeter swans.
