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.
Get some cultural insight at Murie Centre and Chapel of the Transfiguration. Escape the urban bustle at Grand Teton and Jenny Lake Trail. Change things up with these side-trips from Grand Teton National Park: Headwaters Golf Club (in Victor) and Dubois (Dubois Museum: Wind River Historical Center & National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center). There's still lots to do: trek along Cascade Canyon Trail, admire the verdant scenery at Potholes Turnout, Grand Teton National Park, and stroll through Taggart Lake.
