Grand Teton mountain is 13,770 feet high and the highest in the Teton Range. While there are several notable mountains in this range, the three signature mountains cluster together and are comprised of Grand Teton, Middle Teton, and South Teton. The Teton Range lies within the Snake River drainage basin and is actually a sub-range of the Rocky Mountains, which run all the way from Alaska to New Mexico.

Most of these photographs were taken during the course of a wonderful 4-day backpack trip that entirely circles the three Teton mountains and, on the back side of these mountains, passes through the Alaska Basin.
