This had a lower and upper falls. The lower was from a distance but absolutely breathtaking views. So many people trying to get pictures with the falls behind them. The upper falls was close up and personal! Loved it!

You don't actually park on the Grand Loop Road. You take separate drives off of it and they have their own parking areas. The drives are only 5-10 minutes south of Canyon Village. The South Rim Drive will take you to the... More

The distance to the lower entry of the Park is about an hour but the Grand Tetons are in the way and will force you to stop and take them in.
