  • Beautiful scenery for photos. There is a turnout on the road, so you can get out and snap some photos. It is worth a quick stop to see the River and the mountains on this curve in the road. Lovely.

  • Definitely a great place to stop and see the Snake River and the Tetons. While it is next to the road, there are plenty of breaks in traffic when you can listen to the river flow. We saw some people paddle boarding, and others just stepping in to cool off. A very pretty stop, and a great one for photos
  • It was on a must visit list after seeing the magical reflection photos. Going earlier in the day and hoping for calm water is a key to get good reflection pictures. Ample parking but very little information posted and access to the best spot for reflection are hard to reach.
