The Teton mountain range provides some amazing and picturesque views of this national park.  These mountain tower above beautiful open space and clear blue lakes and rivers.

This national park sits directly south of Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. Visit this national park to check some great hiking trails, go fly fishing, see wildlife, and experience the remarkable scenery.

I also highly recommend it as a great place for a wedding!
