Is visiting Grand Teton National Park worth it?

Grand Teton National Park is one of my favorite places on earth. It’s home to insanely beautiful mountain peaks (including the Grand Teton itself sitting at 14,000 feet), lots of wildlife, abundant hiking, and picturesque landscapes everywhere. I have lived close to these peaks my entire life and I’m always amazed at their beauty when I visit. The sunsets are always different and breathtaking, and the variety of photographic locations and opportunity keep me coming back again and again.

One of my favorite locations to take photos is Cascade Canyon Turnout. The sunset from early spring to mid summer comes in at the side of the Teton is beyond gorgeous. There are lots of different locations to take sunset photos in the park, but I wanted to share a few from Laura & Pat’s session at Cascade Canyon. I love the deep blues and greens we were able to acheive.

Where is Grand Teton National Park?

Grand Teton National Park is located about 20 minutes outside of Jackson to the south and it stretches 45-miles connecting to Yellowstone National Park. There is nothing quite like Grand Teton, with its majestic mountain vistas, abundant wildlife, picturesque hikes and seemingly endless sights to see.

The park is best explored in 3 or more days, though the highlights can be discovered within 1-2 days. Each season is vastly different in Grand Teton. Winter results in gorgeous snow covered peaks and temperatures as low as -60 degrees Fahrenheit, fall is the perfect time to witness the foliage changing colors, spring brings lots of snow melt and green lush meadows, and summer is the best time for hiking and exploring in the backcountry plus the wildflowers are going crazy.

The main road through the park is a must visit. There are numerous pull-offs and lookouts to stop at for views of the Teton Mountain Range, wildlife and foliage. Jenny Lake is a popular spot for a walk or boat ride. We love visiting Hidden Falls on the other side of the lake. Its a small popular hike and great for kids.

Picturesque spots to consider visiting are Schwabacher LandingSnake River OverlookMoulton Barns, and the Blacktail Ponds area. Another spot that has become popular over the years is Togwotee Pass. As you drive over the pass you will get some amazing views of the Teton Range and people like to take car/van photo here.
