This shot of the Grand Tetons at sunrise was from a recent trip back to Jackson. The Tetons are always one of my favorite subjects and they usually have pretty amazing sunrises.
The Teton Range is a mountain range of the Rocky Mountains in North America. A north-south range, it is on the Wyoming side of the state’s border with Idaho, just south of Yellowstone National Park. The principal summits of the central massif are the Grand Teton at 13,770 ft, Mount Owen at 12,928 feet, Teewinot (12,325 ft), the Middle Teton (12,804 ft), and the South Teton (12,514 ft). Other peaks in the range include Mount Moran (12,605 ft), Mount Wister (11,490 ft), Buck Mountain (11,938 ft), Static Peak (11,303 ft), Albright Peak (10,552 ft), Prospector’s Mountain (11,241 ft), Rendezvous Mountain (10,450 ft), and Mount Glory (10,086 ft). Most of the range is in Grand Teton National Park. Early French Voyageurs used the name “les Trois Tétons” (the three breasts). It is likely that the Shoshone people once called the whole range Teewinot, meaning “many pinnacles”.
