Teton Mountain Range

Search Moose Wyoming

The Grand Teton, the highest peak in the Teton Mountain Range, reaches 13,770 feet into the sky. Twelve of the Teton peaks are over 12,000 ft high, many having mountain glaciers. The Tetons are the youngest of the Rocky Mountain Range, yet display some of North America's oldest rocks.

The erosion caused by eons of glaciation along with the rise of the range itself have created an environment in which plants thrive, ranging from green riparian land cover to sagebrush flats, lodgepole pine and spruce forests, alpine stone fields, and subalpine meadows. Responding to the thriving plant life, there are a wide variety of animal species, from insects to big game and fish, who make their home in the range.

Human habitation has been recorded as far back as 11,000 years. In the late 1800s, homesteaders moved into the valley.

Grand Teton National Park was founded in 1929. Enjoy both scenic areas in NW Wyoming. Located in Teton County and also in the Bridger-Teton National Forest.
