So far we've visited 5 National Parks and Grand Teton is my personal favorite!!! OMG! This park is stunning. Just south of Yellowstone you drive into another world of magical beauty. However, unlike most other National Parks we've visited we could release the hands of our children and let them really explore. Here are our must see sights! 

1. JENNY LAKE - Jenny Lake has to be the single most astonishing place I've ever been to! As we walked the pathway from the parking lot to the lake I was joking with the boys and hubby... until I saw the view! The feelings of both majesty and absolute tranquility on the warm late summer evening hit me! I didn't know how to feel! She's a scene straight out of a movie! We canceled our plans for the next day and spent the entire day at the lake. The boys tried to catch fish, swam in the warm water and daddy and I pulled up a chair to relax. We highly recommend getting there first thing in the morning! RV parking is limited. We packed the kids in the vehicle, hitched the trailer and got there before showering or having breakfast. We served up a tasty breakfast to the kids on site that morning! I'd go back to Grand Teton just to visit Jenny Lake! The park also has a boat tour of the lake. 

2. MORAN JUNCTION - The best way to see everything at Grand Teton is to drive the 42 mile scenic drive. On the drive you'll come across Moran Junction. That's where the bison graze! We were the first car in line when the ranger stopped traffic so that bison could walk across the street. I often tell the kids that when we're in nature God sends special reminders of love for them as we are often lucky to see may amazing things on our trips! The bison herd is a spectacular site. Close to Moran Junction is also the Cunningham Cabin Historic Site. This little cabin has a small creek and the kids loved playing in the creek and observing the historic carpentry of the cabin. 

3. LOOKOUT POINTS - There are lookout as you drive around the park! You can pull over and gaze at the beautiful scenes. When we visited the smoke from the California wildfires made is difficult to see but we highly recommend pulling over to get some beautiful photos at Togwotee Overlook. You can see the Teton range close to the Climber's Ranch as well. 

You can't visit Grant Teton without also visiting Yellowstone! Check out our post on Yellowstone here
