The Grand Tetons!
This, from straight on, is The Grand Teton.
Lake Jenny, located along the base of the Tetons is supposedly the result of a melting glacier or glaciers thousands of years ago. It is beautiful.
The shoreline picture shows how clear the icy-cold lake is.
As Duchess found, the quiet of the park near Lake Jenny provides a place of contemplation.
The Tetons are the only mountains in the entire chain not limestone. They are composed of granite, thus providing a clue as to their stark, sharp-cut features.
Ignoring their geological history, they are simply breath-taking in their beauty. Some of the few mountains lacking row upon row of smaller mountains. They are just THERE!
