Greetings from Grand Teton National Park!
I have been very fortunate to visit dozens of our National Parks, but my favorite is Grand Teton. I am lucky because my family lives in Jackson Hole so I get to see this view often. This was taken December 2016 when we took a drive to spot wildlife. We saw elk, antelope, big horn sheep (all on the National Elk Refuge) and in the park we saw 4 moose, a herd of bison, 3 foxes, a bald eagle and a kingfisher. Winter is a great time to see wildlife in the park.
P.S. I support the parks because… Our National Parks are a treasure, I meet people visiting from all over the world who are amazed that we have such splendor here and remark how lucky we are that our forefathers had the insight to preserve it. Let's not throw away our heritage now to big oil, mining and greed.
Grand Teton National Park
Grand Teton is a spectacular park where every vista will take your breath away. The best-known feature of the park is the jagged granite peaks of the Teton Range that tower over 7,000 feet above the Jackson Hole valley. The valley is covered by sagebrush and bisected by the wild Snake River. Come and enjoy wildflower meadows, alpine lakes, glaciers, lakes, and premier outdoor recreation and relaxation.
