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.
