    Teton Range, part of the Rocky Mts., NW Wyo. and SE Idaho, just S of Yellowstone National Park. The highest peaks are within Grand Teton National Park, with Grand Teton (13, 747 ft/4, 190 m) the highest peak in the range. Teton Pass (8, 431 ft/2, 570 m) and Phillips Pass (10, 700 ft/3, 261 m) are just south of the park. The Teton Range includes part of Targhee National Forest, and it is also a source for the Teton River. Located at the heart of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem the Rockefeller Parkway connects Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. The parkway provides a natural link between the two national parks and contains features characteristic of both areas. In the parkway, the Teton Range tapers to a gentle slope at its northern edge, while rocks born of volcanic flows from Yellowstone line the Snake River and form outcroppings scattered atop hills and ridges. Grand Teton National Park will leave you in awe of the immense, granite peaks which rise up over 7, 000 vertical feet from the valley floor.. All views of the range are unique, but be sure to check out the 'Cathedral View' near Jenny Lake. A boat ride across Jenny Lake and a hike up Cascade Canyon will give you a better feel for the vast size of the Teton Range. Gazing over Jackson Lake at the beauty of Mt. Moran with it's distinctive flat top is a memory to keep - especially at sunset. Grand Teton National Park is certain to be one of your favorites.
