Grand Teton – wildlife and mountain tops

The first major National Park on my US trip was Grand Teton in Wyoming. Snow dotted mountain peaks, pine trees and beautiful lakes.

Jackson Hole

Jackson was our first stop in the Grand Teton area. While the others from my group rafted on the Snake River or hiked up the mountain I took a walk into the valley (called Jackson Hole) looking for animals. Right next to the town is a large elk refuge but sadly the elks only come down to the valley in wintertime. Luckily the refuge is also a home to a lot of birds and butterflies!

grand teton I have no idea what kind of butterfly this is. If you know please leave a comment and tell me!

grand-teton-blue-birdI don’t know anything about american birds but this is a easy one. It’s blue and it lives in the mountains – so it must be a sweet little mountain blue bird!

Jenny Lake

The next day was spent hiking around Jenny Lake to the viewpoint Inspiration Point.
