Tetons

The Teton Mountain Range is one of the most famous scenes in Wyoming and it lives up to its reputation of being majestic! They loom over you and are awesome in their beauty. This picture is from a pull off on the side of the road but you can get much closer on one if the many climbing routes!

The Shoshone Tribe called the mountain range Teewinot which means “Many Pinnacles”. This is more politically correct than the French name which was I am told was originally “Les Trois Tetons”. This apparently translates to “The Three Breasts.” Guess they were lonely trappers full of wishful thinking!
