Rising more than 7,000 feet above the valley of
Jackson Hole, the Teton Range dominates the skyline in Grand Teton National
Park. The elevation of the park ranges
from 6,400 feet on the sagebrush-dominated valley floor to 13,770 feet on the
windswept granite summit of the Grand Teton.
As the snow melts and temperatures rise, the valley floor of Jackson
Hole changes color as balsam root and a variety of other wildflowers paint
vivid colors throughout the park.
