Grand Teton National Park

Wyoming, United States
 (4 votes, 4 reviews)
Grand Teton National Park is a United States National Park located in northwestern Wyoming, south of Yellowstone National Park. The park is named after the Grand Teton, which, at 13,770 feet (4,197 m), is the tallest mountain in the Teton Range.The name "Tetons" originally was intended to describe several hills near the town of Arco, Idaho. They were named by a French trapper who thought that they resembled the female body. (Ergo tétons, the French word for "nipples" or "teats".) Many years later the name was mistakenly applied to the mountains of present day Grand Teton National Park due to the poor map-making and map-reading standards of the time.

Wonderful but demanding day hike to Surprise Lake and Amphitheater Lake in the Grand Teton National Park. The reward for the struggels of climbing up the mountains of grand teton are beautiful alpine lakes and a view of the grand teton glacier.

Hiked the Grand Teton Loop trail from Death Canyon trail head to Jenny Lake trail head - Beautiful hike!  Spent 3 nights on the trail at Death Canyon, Alaska Basin and South Fork of Cascade Canyon.  Weather was excellent for us.  Most magnificent view was approaching Hurricane Pass from Alaska Basin and seeing the Tetons and valley beneath!

Twelve of us rode the tram from Teton Village to the 10,446' summit to hike to Marion Lake.  Shortly after the start of the return to the tram, I turned left (east) to hike down the mountain through Granite Canyon, emerging at the Granite Canyon Parking Area in Grand Teton National Park.

Walked from Jackson Lodge up to 2 Ocean Lake, so called because it straddles the continental divide, thus ending up in two oceans.  Also went to Grand View Point.   We had planned a loop, but a sudden storm came up, and a tree fell down across the path in front of us.  This convinced us to see if any nice people could give us a ride back.  We found some, I...
