we only stopped here for half an hour to enjoy the view and click pictures. With the background of high mountains and large blue lake, this makes for one of the best places to click pictures.

My friend and I took the hike around Jenny Lake and the views of the mountains reflecting in the water were awesome! Easy hike along the shore and well worth it. Another Teton Treasure!

We stayed in signal mountain campground and through the trees down short trail was unobstructed views of the Teton range across Jackson lake. Was breathtakingly beautiful. I’d return just for the view

If you have the time see all of the main views in GT, from Colter Bay, from Jackson and from Jenny. The postcard views are more likely from Jenny, and maybe Colter, but that comparison should not denigrate Jackson. All are beautiful, but hopefully this...More
