Wikipedia Description: Grand Teton National Park
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Grand Teton National Park is a United States National Park located in western Wyoming, south of Yellowstone National Park. The park is named after Grand Teton, which at 13,770 feet (4,197 m), is the tallest mountain in the Teton Range.
The mountains were named by a French trapper who viewed them from the Idaho side of the range and called them tétons, French slang for "nipples" or "teats" (presumably referring to the shape of the peaks). It was established as a national park on February 26, 1929. The park covers 484 mi˛ (1,255 km˛) of land and water.
There are nearly 200 miles (320 km) of trails for hikers to enjoy in Grand Teton National Park.
Part of the Rocky Mountains, the north-south-trending Teton Range rises from the floor of Jackson Hole without any foothills along a 40 mile (65 km) long by 7 to 9 miles (11 to 15 km) wide active fault-block mountain front system. In addition to 13,770 ft (4,197 m) high Grand Teton, another eight peaks are over 12,000 ft (3,660 m) above sea level. Seven of these peaks between Avalanche and Cascade canyons make up the often-photographed Cathedral Group.
Jackson Hole is a 55 mile (90 km) long by 6 to 13 mile (10 to 20 km) wide graben valley that has an average elevation of 6,800 ft (2,070 m) with its lowest point near the south park boundary at 6350 ft (1,935 m). The valley sits east of the Teton Range and is vertically displaced downward 30,000 ft (9,100 m) from corresponding rock layers in it, making the Teton Fault and its parallel twin on the east side of the valley normal faults with the Jackson Hole block being the hanging wall and the Teton Mountain block being the footwall. Grand Teton National Park contains the major part of both blocks. A great deal of erosion of the range and sediment filling the graben, however, yields a topographic relief of only up to 7,700 ft (2,350 m).
The glaciated range is composed of a series of h ...More...
Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.
2000 photos: Image quality isn't going to be very good because these are scans of prints. In 2000, I was using a Pentax ME Super SLR camera. This was way before I went digital so the images you see on this site were manually scanned from the original prints, some 4x6 and some 5x7. The scaffolding that was being used on the Washington Momnument came down in March so you'll see it disappear this year. In 2000, I took three weeks and drove across country in my new Saturn station wagon -- taking the northern route through Montana and other places, arriving in San Francisco (a place I'd always wanted to visit), and then returning via a southern route. The cross-country drive meant that I took pictures in a 20 different states (an annual record for me) as well as one foreign country.
