After Yellowstone we drove down and through the park to spend the night in Jackson (a great little town!), then came back up through the park the next day. The views of the Teton Range from everywhere are breathtaking. We particularly enjoyed the views from Jenny Lake. A ranger there had some wolf skins and was giving a talk about wolves in the park. That is one of the nice touches that the park offers, real interaction with the rangers. The rangers are so knowledgable and it is a great opportunity to ask any questions. Even if I was never able to see wolves in the wild (here or at Yellowstone) it was nice to be able to get a close up look at their pelts and claws and be able to touch them. We never did see any wildlife in the park, much to my great disappointment, except loads of squirrels at the Cunningham Cabin Historic site. The Cunningham Cabin is a log cabin that was built as a homestead in 1888 by John Pierce Cunningham, who had subsisted as a trapper until he started this small ranch. His family then moved to Idaho as land was being acquired for the Grand Teton National Park, which was then established in 1929. For wildlife viewing I think it is best to get a very early start in the morning or make sure you go at dusk if you really want to have maximum viewing potential, which wasn't our case unfortunately.
