Yellowstone & Grand Teton NP - Grand Teton National Park (Chapter)
This is the Grand Teton National Park chapter from Lonely Planet’s Yellowstone guidebook.
Rough-cut summits rising sharply from a lush valley floor: the Tetons are a sight to behold. For lovers of alpine scenery, the Tetons’ visual impact far exceeds that of Yellowstone. Whichever way you wander, these rock spires exercise a magnetic attraction on your gaze. Simply put, it is sublime and crazy terrain, crowned by the dagger-edged Grand (13,770ft), a giant in the history of American mountaineering. But there’s much more, from sagebrush flats and wildflower meadows to the hundreds of alpine lakes and fragrant forests trodden by bear, moose, grouse and marmot.
