Grand Tetons National Park in Wyoming is contiguous with Yellowstone National park to the North, but wasn't established until much later (1929). It covers about 300,000 acres and includes the spectacular Teton range of mountains, which rise to over 13,000 feet. Shoshone Indians have occupied these mountains and plains for over 11,000 years but today Grand Tetons is unusual as a National Park in having a major town – Jackson Hole – which is a world famous ski resort. Images of the Snake River and Grand Teton were made famous by Ansel Adams, but several other landscape pioneers documented the early years of settlement including William Jackson, Jay Haynes, Benjamin Sheffield, Stephen Leek, Bert and George Schofield and Harrison Crandall.
