This is the iconic location for Grand Teton with a beautiful view of both the river and of the Mountains. It is best to see it in the morning more »
This is a beautiful spot for photos and to explore. One of the top photographed areas in the Tetons. We also saw a few people kayaking which looked really fun.
STUNNING! This place is known for animals. We saw elk and cranes. Get here at dusk or dawn for beautiful lighting. Especially in Fall when the leaves are changing. There is plenty of parking which is rare in popular spots in the Tetons.
