Yellowstone and the Tetons Zoom In 1

Winter's Raiment
Photograph by José Azel

A skirt of morning fog drapes the Tetons, seen from the shore of Jackson Lake in Wyoming. Together, Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks cover 4,000 square miles (10,000 square kilometers) of unparalleled western terrain—and vital wildlife habitat. Yellowstone became the first jewel in the Park System's crown in 1872. In 1950 Grand Teton was expanded to its present limits despite strenuous anti-government objections by ranchers and others to including valuable land in the valley of Jackson Hole.
