Grand Teton National Park
Grand Teton National Park will leave you in awe of the immense, granite peaks which rise up over 7,000 vertical feet from the valley floor. The Grand Teton rises to 13,770 feet. All views of the range are unique, but be sure to check out the 'Cathedral View' near Jenny Lake. A boat ride across Jenny Lake and a hike up Cascade Canyon will give you a better feel for the vast size of the Teton Range. Gazing over Jackson Lake at the beauty of Mt. Moran with it's distinctive flat top is a memory to keep - especially at sunset. Grand Teton National Park is certain to be one of your favorites.

Yellowstone National Park
Yellowstone is the oldest national park in the world, and served as a model for the whole National Parks concept. Sitting atop an ancient volcano, the combination of water and geothermal heating make for some exceedingly diverse sights. The geysers are one of the highlights of the park. The only other places to have geysers are Siberia, New Zealand and Iceland; however, Yellowstone has more geysers than all three of those areas combined. Yellowstone also boasts the world's 2nd largest high-altitude lake and a deep canyon with 2 magnificent waterfalls. Oh, and the wildlife cannot be forgotten: bison, elk, wolves, and grizzly bears just to name a few!
So take you time exploring this immense, diverse park.
Yellowstone National Park's Southern entrance (closest to Jackson Hole) is expected to open mid-May.
Note: be sure to check on Yellowstone's road closures report.
