Grand Teton National Park is a national park located in the northwest of the state of Wyoming. Its namesake, the Grand Teton, is the highest peak of the Teton Mountain range that cuts directly through the park. Although it is located directly south of the quirky Yellowstone, Grand Teton has a very different landscape - a “classic” national park with picturesque mountain range, clear lakes, and lush green alpine trees.

John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway is the main scenic road connecting Yellowstone and Grand Teton.

The 14-mile round trip Cascade Trail cuts through the Teton range alongside the Cascade River. It is one of the most popular hiking trail in the park. However, the trail gets more peaceful if you are willing to walk further than the Inspiration Point.

The Grand Teton is always majestic whichever way you look at it.

This feels like a scene that you’d see in a classic western film.
