Beauty beyond belief. That is my perspective of the Grand Tetons. Every corner, every breath, I see the Tetons towering over the valley. The colors appear white and grey against the blue skies as the clouds brush past them ever so gently. They stand proud and fearless to whomever appears in awe at the power they seem to carry.
The park itself has multiple ways to view the Tetons. My favorite was Taggart Lake. As we were hiking to the lake, we were going through a forest of lodgepole pines, The smell of the pines were intoxicating. Here a Taggart Lake the Tetons along with the pines reflect against the water.
Jenny lake is another beautiful lake that sits at the basin of the Teton Range so it appears as though the mountains are perturbing out of the lake. This lake was named after a Shoshone Indian woman who married an Englishman, Richard Leigh. He also had a nick name and was called “Beaver Dick”. LOL. Jenny and their 6 children died of Small pox in 1876.
The landscape below the Tetons is ever changing depending on where you are in the park. Sagebrush flats color the landscape silvery gray-green. It appears plush through out the valley floor. The park is filled with Aspen trees, fall is here, the colors are changing and such beauty with the yellow leaves sitting at the base of the Tetons.

I usually don’t promote the RV parks we stay at although this one deserves the attention. Justin the owner was so kind when we met him. The park is simple but yet quiet, the views of the mountains and the open range were incredible. If interested the website is tetonpeaks.net. The photos below are a few from the park
We also visited a waterfall and saw moose. We loved the area so much that we did talk about revisiting at some time. Enjoy the random pictures.
Thank you all again for visiting my blog. Namaste
