North American National Park #5 – Grand Teton, Wyoming

Located due south of Yellowstone National Park and connected by the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway, Grand Teton National Park offers some of the most picturesque mountain views in the United States.

Named after the largest peak in the Teton Range, the parks is home to elk and moose as well as Jackson Lake and the Snake River.

Grand Teton can be easily accessed via Yellowstone National Park or nearby Jackson Hole, Wyoming. A combined visit to Grand Teton and Yellowstone is highly recommended as both parks are in close proximity and and offer complimentary features which cannot be found in the other.
