  • What a beautiful place to take pictures. With this scenery you can't help but get some good shots. I would like to get some earlier in the year with more snow.  more »
  • Been here before, but never rated this place. Make sure you find this place when you travel to Jackson Hole. Great anytime, but extra special when the leaves are turning.  more »

  • Nice wildlife watching spot.
  • Gorgeous place to watch sunrise. The sun lights up the mountains and the reflection on the river is really pretty. Get there early though. There were maybe 75+ people there with their cameras set up. The vast majority were huddled together in one blob so, as usual, if you walk a little bit you can find a great spot all to yourself with a different perspective.
