This is almost certainly the most photographed location in all of Grand Teton National Park – and for good reason. From this vantage point you have a view of the Tetons including the 12,605 foot high Mount Moran, the highest peak in the area. Below, the Snake River flows lazily, oftentimes providing picture perfect reflections of the scene above.
On our trip to the park a few weeks ago, only one morning saw weather conducive to picture taking at the spot but thankfully it turned out to be a pretty good one. The colors of sunrise were muted but still enough to color the clouds in pastels and the mountains, following a healthy winter, still had quite a lot of snow on them. Only a few ripples on the water caused by feeding fish disturbed the reflection in the water.
