Grand Teton National Park – Wyoming

Grand Teton National Park Website – https://www.nps.gov/grte/index.htm Wyoming

So after we left Yellowstone National Park in the rain and cold, we took many hours to drive south to Grand Teton National Park, which is connected to her more famous neighbor by a 10 mile road.
