Jackson Lake is in Grand Teton National Park in northwestern Wyoming. This natural lake was enlarged by the construction of the Jackson Lake Dam, which was originally built in 1911, enlarged in 1916 and rebuilt by 1989.
The steep, rugged mountains of the Teton Range give way to the morainic landscape of the valley, which is dotted with glacial lakes of varying sizes.
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
