Grand Teton crowns one of the most magnificent mountain ranges on our continent. Other ranges are longer, wider and higher, but few can rival the breathtaking alpine grandeur of the eastern front of the Tetons. Ridge after jagged ridge of naked rock soar upward into the western sky and culminate in the towering cluster of peaks to which early French trapper gave the name “les trois tetons.”
This is a range of many moods and colors: stark and austere in morning sun, but gold and purple and black in the softly lengthening shadows of the afternoon; somber and foreboding when wrapped in the tattered clouds of an approaching storm, but tranquil and ethereal blue and silver beneath a full moon.
