If you are coming to Jackson Hole, Wyoming a great way to see the best of it would be to take a park tour through Grand Teton National Park. Tour guides are highly knowledgeable and will offer all sorts of information and facts about the wildlife, flora, geology and human history.
Grand Teton National Park preserves a spectacular landscape rich with majestic mountains, pristine lakes and extraordinary wildlife. The abrupt vertical rise of the jagged Teton Range contrasts with the horizontal sage-covered valley and glacial lakes at their base, creating world-renowned scenery that attracts nearly four million visitors per year.
Grand Teton National Park owes its spectacular scenery to earthquakes. Boasting the youngest and steepest mountain range in the west, containing some of the oldest rocks on earth, featuring glaciers and glacier-carved lakes, abundant wildlife and a myriad of wildflowers. As you enter the incredible landscapes of Grand Teton National Park, you will stand in awe of some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere.
Much of Grand Teton National Park was almost lost to commercial development if it wouldn’t have been for land philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, Jr who bought up most of the bottom land of the unprotected valley then donated it the National Park Service.
The icy Snake River, a defining feature of the park, offering varied habitats for wildlife and recreation for visitors. Cutthroat and rainbow trout populate the river, drawing bald eagles and fishermen alike. Industrious beavers have dammed parts of the river, creating calm waters where moose feed on willows and aquatic plants--Schwabacher Ponds and Oxbow Bend are particularly good places to look.
Away from the river, grazing animals like buffalo, elk, mule deer and pronghorns thrive on the park’s extensive sagebrush flats. The porous soil that underlies the flats holds little water, but supports more life than one might think, including 20 types of grass, colorful spring flowers and several rodent species.
Antelope Flats, along Highway 89 on the eastern edge of the park, is a particularly good place to find buffalo. If you’re lucky, you might see a coyote or wolf hunting on the dry prairie
Vacations aren't complete without seeing the mountain ranges of this region. It's a destination loved by young and old and something not to be missed. Sit back and relax and enjoy a guided park tour through the Grand Tetons.
