Marketing Wildlife in Jackson Hole

Due to an abundance of wildlife around Jackson Hole, Wyoming, it was common to see use of animal related tourist attractions and icons in the town.

The four elk antler arches guarding the corners of Jackson Hole’s George Washington Memorial Park, more commonly called the Town Square, have become well known icons to the town’s many visitors. A local whitewater rafting and kayaking operator uses bears to attract customers.

Tetons made Famous by Ansel Adams

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.

Teton Reflections at Jenny Lake

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.
