We drove west on Hwy 22 from Jackson, took a right turn onto Hwy 390 (Moose-Wilson Road) toward Teton Village and Grand Teton NP. The Teton Range loomed along the whole left side of the road. Big granite peaks topped with snow like ice cream and aproned by blue-green prairie shrubs and trees. We passed by Teton Village and could see the how the tram snaked its way up the mountain. We drove on to the GTNP entrance and went a couple of miles on pavement and onto a gravel road. We stopped at the entrance to Granite Canyon to check out the trail but were attacked by biting flies. So we drove on, saw a big mule deer in the brush and came back to the paved road and back to the main inner loop road. The visitor’s center was to the right, but we went left through the Teton entrance gate. The Chapel of the Transfiguration and Menor’s Ferry were to the right just past the gate entrance. We opted to go on and our first stop was a spectacular view of the Tetons at the Windy Point turnout. We then drove on to the Jenny Lake Visitor’s Center and walked down to the boat dock, purchased our tickets to take the boat across Jenny Lake. We really enjoyed Hidden Falls, Inspiration Point and Cascade Canyon - will plan to go all the way to the end of Cascade next time. The next day we visited The Chapel of the Transfiguration, an Episcopal chapel, which frames the main Tetons through the clear pane glass just behind the cross inside. The main Tetons are Grand Teton, Middle Teton (black granite), and South Teton, Mt. Owen (next to Cascade Canyon) and Mt. Moran (with a vertical black granite “spike”). This particular stretch of road on up to Jenny Lake is right next to the big five and is great for walking, biking and a scenic drive. Highly recommend it.

We went here while it was still very cold. We did not get to see any large wild life, but we did see some moose tracks and a bald eagle.

9/26/2015. Beautiful trail! Fairly easy, but not a smooth path. We went from South Jenny Lake trailhead to Hidden Falls-2.5mi to the falls. Could hear elk, but didn't see any animals. Other hikers saw a moose. It was a perfect weekend day so there were a lot of other hikers out. We forgot bear spray, but was OK with the big crowd. We also saw several park rangers on the trail. there was boat ferry this weekend still if you can't hike well.
