Recognizable for their massive antlers, moose are also known for their ability to thrive in cold environments. Their thick fur, designed for insulation, keeps them warm even during the harsh winters of Wyoming. When exploring Grand Teton, visitors may see moose near the park’s lakes and rivers as these herbivores depend on the aquatic plants found near water for food. Just remember, despite their seemingly gentle nature, they don’t moose-around when it comes to personal space.

The Snake River is a magnet for amateur rafters, pelican-watchers and fishermen, who cast lines for trout. Nestled within the mountains are glaciers, alpine lakes and fields of larkspur and lupines.
