The Grand Teton National Park is named for the Grand Teton, which is the largest mountain in the range and sits about ten miles from Yellowstone’s North Entrance. Grand Teton rises 13, 775 feet high. Grand Teton National Park was established in 1929, and the national park consists of the mountain range, as well as numerous lakes and streams.Grand Teton National Park was on our way towards Laramie, Wyoming, where we spent the night before we drove to Colorado to the Rocky Mountains.
Unfortunately we didn’t get to see the entirety of the park, we saw maybe 1/4th of the park, but it was so gorgeous. The cliffs were at the base of a beautiful river, and the peaks were still covered slightly with snow.
The views were breath-taking, and I hope we can spend more time at the Grand Tetons in the future… I’m already planning a trip in about two years that probably will include it.
We did, however, get our passports stamped.
Then we journeyed through Wyoming, the most boring state I’ve ever seen aside from the Grand Teton and Yellowstone.
Wyoming is apparently a popular destination. We were trying to find lodging there and almost every single hotel was booked. It’s not like there’s anything exciting going on in Wyoming, but I think it’s just that, there are so few popular cities, that lodging is limited to the few big cities that Wyoming has.
So we wound up in Laramie, which wasn’t where had initially intended to wind up., it was much further away, but closer to Colorado, which was our next destination.
The hotel was nice, we got there late, but we had a big room with a very big bed, and Laramie is actually a city, so there were stores around, and it wasn’t in the middle of nowhere, so that’s a plus.
So in conclusion, Grand Tetons are absolutely beautiful, and Wyoming is a very strange state,
