Often overshadowed by Yellowstone National Park, its larger neighbor to the north, Grand Teton National Park is a land of vast scenic beauty. What it lacks in geysers and hot springs, it more than makes up for in the rugged Teton Mountain Range. The Teton's many canyons lead to alpine meadows, cirques and towering peaks. It was this rugged range that became Wyoming's second national park in 1929. In 1950 the park boundaries were expanded to include much of the Snake River Valley. Across the valley from the Tetons is the Gros Ventre range. In Wyoming they say people come to visit the Tetons and end up falling in love with the Gros Ventres. The Gros Ventre range is part of Bridger Teton National Forest. What these mountains lack in height and rugged grandeur they more than make up for with their gentle beauty and sweeping vistas. Their brightly colored alpine meadows are a joy of sights and smells.
