I had a choice of somewhere to fly to this week, and I chose to visit Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Why might one ask? Well, besides it being one of the most known spots for skiing in the winter, Teton National Park is a major reason to visit as well.
Teton National Park is 310,000 acres big in northwestern Wyoming! It was established in 1929 as a National Park and it has expanded over time. It includes hiking trails, the famed Teton Range of mountains, recreational spots for swimming and fishing, and much more. You can view wildlife such as deer, elk, and moose – if you’re lucky! I was told there was a moose on a road I just came from and when I returned 1 minute later, it was gone! I did see a pack of deer and moose, of around 15, when I was driving at 5am through the park to the airport.
It is a $25 fee per vehicle to enter Teton National Park. There’s many concession stands, pull over areas, restrooms, restaurants, and lakes to stop by at. Be careful of hiking on your own though – black bears do live here! There are signs posts every few yards to remind you what to do if you encounter one.
I spent my day driving around and stopping at many places. You will receive a map and there are many signs for turnabouts or places to stop over and park. Here’s the memorable shots of Teton National Park – check out the beauty!
