hi Rich, what is "Grand Tetons", the tag you use here ? the name of these mountains ?

Richard Ryer on October 17, 2007

Greetings Armagnac, There are so many stories about how the mountains in this range were named. My favorite is the one about the French Trappers who came into the valley and upon seeing the mountains exclaimed "Grand Tetons" with the loose interpretation being "Great Breasts". The rangers always get a chuckle when they tell that one. If you click on my Tag "Grand Tetons" or "Tetons" you will be able to see the range from different points of view. The park is one of the smaller parks in the system, but one of the most beautiful rating right up there with Yosemite and Yellowstone. Hope that helps.

Cheers,

Rich

Really beautiful photo Rich! The peaks are crystal-clear against the sky.

Greetings, Rich! This is a wonderful shot. Is this pretty near the dock? Maybe at Inspiration Point? It looks you mapped it at the top of the switchbacks, but I don't recall the exact spot. Is this looking toward Grand Teton, or toward Paintbrush Canyon?

Greetings, Ryan

Greetings Eve and Ryan, Thanks for visiting the Tetons and your wonderful comments. This was another shot from the old days. It is just a short distance up above the Inspiration Point. As I recall you are getting to a point where the valley is beginning to get a little wider and the gorge to the left, running behind the Grand, is just beginning to open up. It was really beautiful up there and most of the tourists had turned around at the point. The view is mainly to the south west. Thanks again for visiting.

Cheers,

Rich
