The peaks of Grand Teton National Park aren't the highest in the world, but they sit atop what might be nature's archetypes for mountains.
Visiting Grand Teton and Inspiration Point will get you outdoors. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at 42-mile Scenic Loop Drive and Jackson Lake. The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Chapel of the Sacred Heart, take in the dramatic natural features at Glacier View Turnout, take a memorable drive along Signal Mountain Summit Road, and admire the sheer force of Hidden Falls.
