The Grand Tetons from the Idaho Side

tetons from idaho side
Not every view of the Grand Tetons has to be the iconic one of their east side from Jackson Hole. Drive over to the national forest in Idaho, on the other side, for a different, but just as stunning view.

We visited the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone in the early fall of 2008. We day hiked every day, splitting our time between the National Park on the Wyoming side, and national forest trails on the Idaho side. The Idaho side was a lot less crowded, and just as pretty.

You can see a list here of all the United States National Parks, with links to our stories about the ones we've visited.
