8 Must-Visit Locations for Stunning Photos in Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park

Schwabacher Landing

I visited Schwabacher Landing in Grand Teton National Park multiple times at sunrise and sunset. A beaver dam on the Snake River creates ponds ideal for capturing the Tetons and their reflections.

Mormon Row Historic District

The Mormon Row Historic District, with its barns and houses from the 1890s, is one of the most photographed locations in Grand Teton National Park.

Oxbow Bend Overlook

A sweeping bend in the Snake River, best photographed at sunrise or sunset. This high vantage point captures reflections of the mountains and sky, and you may also spot moose, elk, bears, osprey, and bald eagles.

Blacktail Ponds Overlook

One of my favorite places, this vast, marshy valley turns into a lush green in early summer and a warm golden brown in the fall. This spot is ideal for wildlife viewing and photography with binoculars or a long lens, especially at dawn and dusk.

Spread Creek Lupines

Lupine Meadows is a great spot for viewing wildflowers with stunning views of the Tetons and alpine lakes. The hike is long and strenuous. For an easier early summer lupine viewing hike, try Spread Creek.

Snake River Overlook

In 1941, the National Park Service commissioned Ansel Adams to photograph Grand Teton National Park. Eighty years later, the same view is hidden by pine trees, but the dramatic mountains and foothills make for a beautiful photo.

The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar

The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, established in 1937 in Jackson, offers drinks, dancing, and live entertainment. It is known for its iconic vintage sign featuring a rotating cowboy on a bucking bronco.

Elk Antler Arch

Elk antler arches mark the four corners of Town Square in historic George Washington Memorial Park. The first arch, erected in 1953 on the southwest corner, was so popular that the Rotary Club built the other three.

Grand Teton National Park is known for its stunning natural beauty and is a paradise for photographers. Be sure to learn more about it!
