While Grand Teton National park may not sound familiar to most, it is one of the most interesting places in the United States. The park is situated south of Yellowstone National Park. This, however, is not a bad thing. Because of Yellowstone's immense fame, most of the tourists end up going there rather than Grand Teton National Park. This is a blessing, because if the hordes of people who visit Yellowstone were to visit Grand Teton, it would not be the same. In this blog, I I will go over all of the thing to do in Grand Teton National Park, and why I think it's a hiker's paradise.
The Grand Teton National park is one of the most grand and awe-inspiring sights that you'll ever see. The towering cliffs of the mountains above cast shadows over the Jackson Hole valley. Here is an image that captures the magnitude of these mountains.
The park is full of trails for all different skill level hikers. While in Yellowstone it is almost impossible to get away from the crowds, you only have to walk a short distance in Grand Teton National Park to have some quiet time. This is the main reason why I think the park is one of the greatest out there. You can walk a short distance and have some of the greatest views of your life - all to yourself.
If you're more of a hiker, however, you can hike almost all the way up the mountains and take different trails to lead you through various passages and forests. The crystal-clear mountain lakes that you'll pass on the way complement the towering cliffs.
The experience that I had at Grand Teton National Park ultimately inspired the design for the "Dawn" tee shirt design. If you are interested in checking out this design just click on the link and you can check out the different colorways.
