Rob's Tetons Trip Report

     Grand Teton National Park, famous for a handful of peaks that soar over 12,000 feet, wraps around Wyoming's Snake River, Jenny Lake and the huge Jackson Lake. The Tetons, left unobstructed by foreground foothills, project a magnificent sight. Unfortunately, the highway passes through the heart of the park and quite often visitors stop to see the Tetons, and then scurry on passed the remainder of Bear Country Sign - Grand Tetons National Park, Wyoming the park, anxious to see neighboring Yellowstone.
     The Teton Park National Park, with its challenging terrain, may scare off all by the true adventurer. Most visitors see a small area of the park, skipping views from the alpine trails and Route 191, which follows the Snake River for miles.
     Deep within the Teton Mountains are a dozen interlaced highland trails. Some continue westward into Winegar Hole and Jedediah Smith Wilderness lands. The Paintbrush Canyon Trail, starting out near Jenny Lake, offers a challenging loop hike, passing by Holly Lake, on to Solitude Lake, and eventually returning by way of Cascade Canyon. This special view of Solitude Lake marks the halfway point on the loop and a must stop where hikers soak up the wonderful scenic view.
