|Topic: Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole, Wyoming|
|The next leg
of our tour of the Rocky Mountain States will take us South to Dinosaur
National Monument. On the way, you can stop to visit Grand Teton
National Park, just south of Yellowstone. Located near the nice little
town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the Grand Tetons are spectacular!
Towering more than a mile above the valley known as Jackson Hole, the Grand Teton rises to 13,770 feet above sea level. Twelve Teton peaks reach above 12,000 feet elevation, high enough to support a dozen mountain glaciers. In contrast to the abrupt eastern face, the west side of the range slopes gently, showing the angle of tilt of the Earth's crust. Youngest of the mountains in the Rocky Mountain system, the Teton Range displays some of the North America's oldest rocks.
