Ever seen Mt. Moran?

Mt. Moran rises to 12,610 ft from Jackson Lake in northern Grand Teton National Park (45 minutes north of Jackson, WY). Its top is composed of sandstone, formed over 10 million years ago when this mountain was submersed in an inland salt water lake. As such, it stands in contrast to some of the more jagged peaks surrounding it….Grand Teton (13,776 ft).

It is named after the American frontier landscape artist Thomas Moran. In summer, its glaciers are easily seen along with its Basalt dike. This dike extends vertically and appears to be man-made as it is almost perfectly vertical. In winter, these features are not visible due to snow accumulation.

This mountain is one of the most well-known and frequently requested spots to view on tours with Teton Wild Custom Wildlife Tours in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
