Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

The Grand Teton National Park is located in Wyoming, just south of the Yellowstone National Park. The park is named after the Grand Teton mountain (4,197m), the tallest mountain on the Teton Range, and the 2nd highest in Wyoming.

The Grand Teton can be viewed if you’re on your way from Salt Lake City, Utah heading towards the Yellow Stone national park.

According to the National Park Service (NPS), the granite and gneiss composing the core of the Teton Range are some of the oldest rocks in North America, yet the mountains are amongst the youngest in the world.
