An ethereal mountain landscape where jagged peaks tower more than a mile above the Jackson Hole valley, Grand Teton National Park is located in northwestern Wyoming just south of Yellowstone National Park and just north of the town of Jackson, Wyoming.
The park's stunning mountain range is very popular among climbers, hikers and photographers. The Tetons are a prime example of fault-block mountain formation and when the earth's crust cracked along a fault millions of years ago, the Tetons rose into the sky. The exposed crystalline rocks give these mountains their dramatic appearance in any season. The tallest of the mountains, Grand Teton, rises to 13,770 feet above sea level and twelve other peaks reach above 12,000 feet elevation making this a magnificent vista.
