Grand Teton National Park

So far we have been to Yosemite, Glacier, Yellowstone and now Grand Teton National Park. They are all beautiful and have unique qualities.  So far, our favorite has been Glacier and we will go back there in 2012.

Consider this comment about our natural resources:

"Surely our people do not understand even yet the rich heritage that is theirs. There can be nothing in the world more beautiful than the Yosemite, its groves of Giant Sequoias and Redwoods, The Canyon of the Colorado, The Canyon of The Yellowstone, The Three Tetons; and the representatives of the people should see to it that they are preserved for the people forever, with they majestic beauty unmarred."  Theodore Roosevelt – 1904

Here is our look at Grand Teton National Park

A final thought:

"Those who have gone before us have set an example to us as stewards of these vast natural resources. We owe it to those yet unborn to continue to preserve and protect what can never be replaced" -- author unkown

Stay tuned


  1. Like the Teddy R. quote. We just happened to visit the Teddy R. NP in ND today. Good example of what he was thinking of in his quote.

  2. Hey George, Great pic's. Thought you may like to know that the word Teton is French for Breast. The Tetons were also called, "The Pilot Knobs" & "The Three Paps".


  3. Great pics and "amen" to those quotes!!
