Marion Lake and Granite Canyon

A great way to explore the alpine areas of Grand Teton National Park is to take the tram ride up from Jackson Hole Resort in Teton Village to the top of Rendezvous Mountain. From there, traverse across the sublime landscape to Marion Lake, then back down through Granite Canyon and loop back to the village….

Emma Matilda Lake Loop

For a nice, shorter hike in Grand Teton National Park, walk to Christian Pond, to the Oxbow Bend Overlook, then on to Lookout Rock which is a nice vantage of Emma Matilda Lake. For solitude, continue on and loop around the entire lake. While not as dramatic as other hikes in the Tetons, it still…

You can hike the short distance to the Christian Pond overlook, passing great birding habitat along the way and turn around to come back for a shorter hike, or continue for a nice loop. Smokey skies dampened our excursion for…

This crystal clear lake is backdropped by the jagged Tetons, features a wonderful overlook, a waterfall, and a pond that is popular with moose. A perfect bluebird morning greeted us…
