This spectacular destination preserves a dramatic stretch of the Teton Range bordering the Snake River. One of the unusual features of these distinctive mountains is the absence of foothills, meaning that there are no smaller mountains blocking the view. The park also features glacier-carved lakes, a historic district of weathered buildings made by 19th century Mormon homesteaders, and an abundance of wildlife large and small, including nearly 1,000 bison that roam the grassy fields in herds.

Watching for Whistle Pigs

Yellow-bellied marmots frequent boulder fields along the trails and are sometimes called “whistle pigs” because of the high-pitched noises they make to warn of possible predators.
