This was a personal highlight for my visit to the Grand Tetons given my appreciation for photography and Ansel Adams. All the sites are easily accessible for all levels of visitors, saw a few electric wheelchairs on the short paths as well. Don't forget to...More

This is one of the most beautiful locations in all of GTNP, and is a must see. Great picturesque photo opportunity. If the river is smooth, the mountains will reflect in it, but still beautiful at any time.

We followed suggestions from several sources and got up early for sunrise at Oxbow Bend. It did not disappoint. The mountains reflect the colors of the sunrise and reflect perfectly in the smooth waters.

This is such a beautiful spot. From fishing, wildlife viewing, photography or just zoning out taking in the views. I have loved this spot since I was young. It is worth a stop to take in the beauty.

Although we didn't see any wildlife this is an iconic place for photographs. If you get here at dawn or dusk, the reflection of the mountains in the water make for a great shot.

Hi, There are resorts close by. The closest are Signal Mt Lodge and Jackson Lake Lodge. No actual hotels like in Jackson. Signal Mt is cheaper than Jackson Lake Lodge but both are spectacular right on Jackson Lake in front... More
