Oxbow Bend is actually in the Grand Teton NP. It is a must-see in my opinion. We went pass by this place more than 6 times during the past 2 weeks. Every time, we stopped and appreciated the view. There are American white pelicans in the nearby island. We were so lucky and on the last day there we spotted a big black bear about 1 mile west of the Oxbow Bend in the forest very close to the road.

What a lovely place to stop and appreciate the scenery. Great views of the Tetons. Also, saw a few swans and some elk. How fun!

We were fortunate to have an awesome storm pass through just before sunset that set up the most amazing sunset we've ever seen. There was so much wildlife around as well-otter, beaver, eagles, elk, and critters that were seen just before we arrived. In the Autumn the ranger arrives at 6:00pm and spends about an hour and a half with his scope and binoculars helping to spot wildlife and discuss the history and geology of the park so take advantage if you can.

There is a reason this is one of the most photographed spots in the world. I have seen it in winter and summer. On a clear day, it is stunningly beautiful no matter what the season.
