We traveled along this lake for several miles and enjoyed every minute! What a beautiful, unspoiled area. Be sure to stop and look for wildlife. We saw several elk.

This lake can be seen from many vantage points at the northern end of the park. It is quite large and is surrounded by gorgeous mountains. Just one of many points of interest in the park.

The mountains appear as if they rise right out of the water since there are no foothills. Absolutely gorgeous!

Best seen from Jackson Lake Lodge, but also accessible from other vantage points and a boat dock. Grand vistas, with Mt. Moran in the background. Wildlife abounds here.

Many visitors stop at the Jackson dam to take pictures, but if you continue up the road, you’ll find a pull-off on the lake side that affords 180-degree views of the snow-covered peaks mirrored in the pristine lake.

Jackson lake is gorgeous. The water is very cold but also very clear and has the Tetons as a breathtaking back drop.
