The Grand Tetons of Grand Teton National Park rise in Wyoming in this Ansels Adams photo from the 1940's. Wyoming is home to two amazing national parks - Yellowstone NP and the Grand Teton NP. French trappers named the three spectacular peaks known as South, Middle, and Grand Teton. These effectively form the centerpiece of a National Park known for beautiful lakes, rivers, aspen forest, and towering majestic mountains. Although the Grand Teton requires some technical skill to climb, Middle and South can be scaled without special equipment though the hike is steep and rocky.

After spending 5 days in Yellowstone we took a short drive to Grand Teton for 4 days in early October 2018. We came with the mindset that the park would be less crowded and the autumn colors would be at their peak and the Park did not disappoint. "Yellows and reds painted the sleepy brown woods" and I wondered if we'd ever go home.
Grand Teton is breathtaking. The mountain range is mesmerizing. Grand Teton is not as well travelled as the other big National Parks so you can really get away from it all. Especially during the autumn months. No traffic, no lines, easy to get a table in restaurants and the some of the stores have end of season sales.
