Yesterday my friend and I rode our bikes 35 miles around the southern end of Jackson Hole.
The Sleeping Indian mountain on horizon. Looks like a Indian chief laying on his back, you can see his head,nose and neck and his belly on the right. Flat Creek and the National Elk Refuge ( a winter habitat) in the foreground and Miller's Butte left and Gros Ventre Peak on right.
The southern boundary of Grand Teton Park just 5 miles north of Jackson along US89. The Teton range on the horizon. Grand Teton is 13,775 feet. Jackson Hole, the valley on the Wyoming side is 6500'. Tree line is 9000' feet where the snow line is.
Wildflowers and other native plants upper pictures
Granite Creek carries the snow melt down from the Tetons
And carries it down stream to the Snake River, which in turn empties into the Columbia River in Oregon and then into the Pacific Ocean.
