Grand Teton National Park Established (1929)

Before US President Calvin Coolidge signed a bill creating Grand Teton National Park, the National Park Service and homesteaders around Jackson Hole, Wyoming, fought for decades about the best way to preserve the landscape there. Much of the steep Teton Range lies within the boundaries of the park. Its peaks rise above deep valleys, called "holes" by the first white trappers and traders in the area. It has been suggested that early French trappers named the Teton Range after what body part? More...

Grand Teton National Park is in northwest Wyoming. GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK was established in 1929. The park, which includes Jackson Lake and part of Jackson Hole, embraces the most scenic portion of the glaciated, snow-covered Teton Range, the youngest of all Rocky Mountain ranges. Grand Teton (13,766 ft) is the highest peak. The Snake River flows through the park, which is dotted with small lakes and has several glaciers, forests, and a great variety of wildlife. Hiking, floating down the Snake on rafts, camping, and mountain climbing are popular activities in the park.
The climate in GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK is semi-arid mountain climate. Extreme high: 93 degrees F (34 degrees C). Extreme low: -46 degrees F (-43 degrees C). Average snowfall: 191 inches (490 cm). Average rainfall: 10 inches (26 cm). GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK has many lakes that lend to a very beautiful open aura to the park as a whole. Seven morainal lakes are at the base of the Teton Range: Jackson, Leigh, Jenny, Bradley, Taggart, and Phelps. Jackson Lake = 25,540 acres (10,340 hectares), maximum depth = 438 feet (134 m). There are over 100 alpine and backcountry lakes.
The Snake is a complex river to float. The beauty and lack of whitewater often lull floaters into inattentiveness. Looks are deceiving, however. This river can pose quite the challenge for even expert paddlers, but by paying close attention to the tangle of channels and constant shifting of logjams, anyone can come out of this experience with one of the best rushes ever!
