Grand Teton National Park is a United States National Park located in northwestern Wyoming, south of Yellowstone National Park. The park is named after the Grand Teton, which, at 13,770 feet (4,197 m), is the tallest mountain in the Teton Range.The name "Tetons" originally was intended to describe several hills near the town of Arco, Idaho. They were named by a French trapper who thought that they resembled a very specific part of the female body. Many years later the name was mistakenly applied to the mountains of present day Grand Teton National Park due to the poor map-making and map-reading standards of the time.
Took the shuttle boat across Jenny Lake to be able to shorten hike to Lake Solitude. Hiking through Cascade Canyon is relatively flat, but it gets steeper as you climb to Lake Solitude. Saw one moose in the canyon, and a number of marmots on the way up to and back from the lake.

Went part way around the lake then up.
I've done this drive a couple times and it is everything you would expect it to be. Views out over the lakes, the mountains, doesn't get much better than this. I arrived early one morning on one trip, and the water on the lakes was like glass. Great reflection shots. Highly recommended scenic drive!!
We actually arrived here late one afternoon and wound up crashing in the truck that night right here. What a view of the Tetons in the morning. The cabin is cool and has quite a history. Buck and rail fencing all over the place too, really looks neat with the surrounding scenery. Worth the stop as it's just right off the highway.
Amazing hike. Very hard but the view from the top and the lakes along the way are beyond worth it! I took this hike in the middle of July, it was very hot so lots of water was needed, we ran into a black bear on the trail but he wasn't to interested in the hikers. Lots of people throughout the whole hike in July as well. It was one of the best hikes in the Tetons I've ever took!
