The Park: Grand Teton National Park was established in 1929 and it is named for the mountain range which completely dominates the view. Grand Teton is an impressive 45 miles long and 26 miles wide at its widest. That’s 485 square miles, or 310,000 acres, of pristine mountains and rivers, herds of bison, elk, pronghorn and deer. There are wolves, grizzly and black bears, mountain lions and moose. Bald eagles and osprey perch in the trees by the side of the Snake River and hunt cutthroat trout.
The Teton Range itself is 40 miles long and the six most obvious peaks are: the Grand Teton at 13,770 feet, Mt. Owen at almost 13,000 feet, Nez Perce at 11,900 feet, the Middle Teton at 12,800 feet, Teewinot Mountain at 12,300 feet, and the broad Mt. Moran at 12,600 feet. Hikers, climbers, skiers, and mountaineers flock to these mountains every year. Almost 4 million people a year visit Grand Teton National Park.
The Tour: Fur trappers, pioneers, homesteaders and ranchers populated “Jackson Hole”, which is the valley that makes up the flat part of Grand Teton National Park, created a rich and colorful history that you can explore. The GaperGuide tour will tell some of the tales from the early years, show you the old homesteads, and discuss the relationship between the natural environment and the hardy people that helped create the park. With GaperGuide, you can explore at your own pace, stop where you want to stop, and you won’t miss anything. It’s you’re your vacation, in your car, on your schedule.
