The Grand Tetons!

Although this picture is from South of the primary peaks these are the three Tetons....Grand at right and then middle and smaller 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!
