The Tetons and the Snake River is a black and white photograph taken by Ansel Adams in 1942, at the Grand Teton National Park, in Wyoming. It is one of his best known and most critically acclaimed photographs. Ansel Adams photographed this iconic view of the Teton Range and Snake River from roughly where we have posted several images (similar to the one below) from the Snake River Overlook. Today visitors try to capture this image forgetting that trees have grown and the exact location is not known.

Jenny Lake is one of the most visited areas in Grand Teton National Park. Tucked away at the base of the Teton Range, it is considered the focal point of Grand Teton’s National Park, Jenny Lake is home to numerous hiking trails, scenic boat rides and major climbing routes that must be seen to be believed. As you might expect, many of the things to do in Jenny Lake mainly focus upon the area’s natural beauty.
While the reflections of the Teton are hazy, the water at the shore is crystal clear.

The Tetons are one of the youngest mountain ranges in North America. They have been uplifting for less than 10 million years, making them “adolescent” mountains, as compared to the “middle-aged” Rockies (50-80 million years old) or the “elderly” Appalachians (more than 300 million years old).
Most of the lakes in the park were formed by glaciers and the largest of these lakes are located at the base of the Teton Range
