  • We visited in the evening, and it was pretty, but we went back the next morning for an even better experience. The morning sun gives you a great reflection in the river.  more »
  • Here is a spot not just for the Tetons but more for the water and animals. There will be others stopping with you.  more »

  • This is a beautiful spot for photos and to explore. One of the top photographed areas in the Tetons. We also saw a few people kayaking which looked really fun.
  • STUNNING! This place is known for animals. We saw elk and cranes. Get here at dusk or dawn for beautiful lighting. Especially in Fall when the leaves are changing. There is plenty of parking which is rare in popular spots in the Tetons.
