Grand Teton National Park, located in northwestern Wyoming just south of
Yellowstone, was originally established in 1929. Its boundaries
originally included the mountains and lakes at their base. In 1950,
it was expanded to include much of the surrounding valley. This
96,000-acre national park features breathtaking scenery: twelve
jagged mountains soar over a broad valley of muted green meadows, aspen
and evergreen forests, and glacial lakes. Grand Teton is the
tallest of the peaks, at 13,770 feet. Nearly 4 million vacationers
visit annually for river rafting, hiking, rappelling, biking, boating,
fishing, and horseback riding. Popular winter sports here include
skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling.
