Our second national park on our road trip was Grand Teton and it was by far the most visually stunning part of our trip. The park is only 10 miles south of Yellowstone, but once you get to the lake and mountain range, it feels like you’re in a completely new place.
We didn’t spend very much time in Grand Teton unfortunately, because we had a 4.5 hour drive to Salt Lake City for the night, but we were able to stop at a few scenic places along Jackson Lake to take in the gorgeous Teton mountain range.
We took a few detours off of the main road that goes through Grand Teton in hopes of spotting some more wildlife (i.e. moose or wolves). We did see a few more small herds of bison (since they’re everywhere!), as well as a few lone elk, but unfortunately did not get the chance to see moose or wolves.
Since our time in Grand Teton was short, we are hoping to come back in the future and camp right on the lake to experience the gorgeous mountains at sunset and sunrise. I also apologize for not having too much to write about this park, so here are a few our my favorite pictures from our time there!
*Side note: Some of you may know that I want to live in a tiny, moveable house at some point in my life and after this trip, Grand Teton National Park was officially added to my list of places to park the tiny house. Imagine having the view below out your window everyday…
Lastly, if you ever decide to take a trip to Yellowstone, I definitely recommend making it a priority to go to Grand Teton since it’s not too far out of the way, and in my opinion, was the perfect ending to our time spent in Yellowstone.
