... Grand Teton National Park
The Tetons are made up of three main summits: The Grand Teton, Mt. Owen and Mt. Moran. The range is part of the Rocky Mountains, running north to south across the Wyoming - Idaho border. This shot was taken at Oxbow Bend Turnout.

The Tetons viewed from Signal Mountain Summit and Overlook. Signal Mountain is a five-mile drive up 800 feet within the park. From there, you get a grand view of the Tetons as well as the Jackson Hole valley to the south.
Signal Mountain Lodge is the only lodge in The Grand Teton National Park that offers lakeside lodging. And it has a wonderful outdoor restaurant.
The Snake River is as prominent in the park as are the mountains.
Mormon Row Historic District is a group of homesteads that was built in the 1890s in Jackson Hole. Abandoned after only two generations, a few of the barns and homes still stand, offering a true sense of the way life was "out West."
The next few pictures (and the one on the right) were taken at Mormon Row.
The park rangers suggest you STAY IN YOUR CAR!!!! when the buffalo roam. Maybe this is why, ya think??

If you spend any time at all in Grand Teton Natl Park, you're sure to see a herd of buffalo. We watched these guys and dolls for at least 45 minutes as they tried to decide whether the grass was greener on the left side of the road, or the right.
