Your First Trip to the Tetons


The Grand Teton Range began to rise approximately 10 million years ago, with earthquakes and upheavals building up the mountains a bit at a time. There are no foothills to this mountain range due to the Teton fault and how it created this spectacular skyline. The magnificent views take the breath away of all those who come to Grand Teton National Park to explore. Inspirational is only one word to try and describe this park in Wyoming, and even that does not do it justice.


Humans populated Jackson Hole and the Tetons for over 11,000 years. The first people came soon after the Ice Age ended, spending their time supporting their families by picking berries and fishing the lakes and streams. John Colter was the first euro-American to come to this area in the early 1800s.  Then fur trappers came in search for beaver, high in demand in the mid-1800s. Finally in the late 1800s, the land was scouted for railroad access.


Viewing wildlife at Grand Teton National Park couldn’t be better. At Oxbow Bend, you will see bald eagles, beavers, moose and elk. On the forested ridge called Timbered Island you will see bands of pronghorn antelope and elk. In other areas of the park, expect also to see coyotes, ground squirrels, and a wide variety of birds.
