Grand Teton National Park
THE TETON RANGE is one of the most magnificent mountain ranges on the North American Continent. Others are longer, wider, and higher, but few can rival the breathtaking alpine grandeur of the eastern front of the Tetons. Ridge after jagged ridge of naked rock soar upward into the western sky, culminating in the towering cluster of peaks to which the early French voyageurs gave the name “les Trois Tetons” (the three breasts). The range hangs like a great stone wave poised to break across the valley at its base. To the south and east are lesser mountains, interesting and scenic but lacking the magic appeal of the Tetons.
