Be sure to visit Oxbow Bend. It provides the best views of the Teton range. It is a famous site for photographers. Bring your binoculars to be able to zoom in on the mountains. Ample parking. Take your time.

This is a beautiful area. The day we were there it was perfect weather, and with our binoculars we were able to find birds, moose, and ducks.

Oxbow bend is a gorgeous must see place at the far north reach of the Teton range. It is gorgeous and reflective early in the morning. Of course fall is amazing but it is gorgeous any time of the year

Great place for taking pictures of Grand Teton National Park. Sunrise and sunset are especially beautiful. Fall is wonderful.

It's a small pullout on main highway marked a Oxbow Outlook, and the view is of a portion of the lake and the meadows with bushes and pine trees.

Oxbow bend is literally just next to the road so you can just pull off in the car and jump out to see the spectacular view. And it is well worth the stop! The view of the Tetons reflecting in the water is absolutely breathtaking...More

This is an excellent stop anytime of the day, but especially early morning for the mountain reflection or late in the afternoon for the sunset. A Park Ranger is usually there at 6 pm with a scope for wildlife spotting.

Hubby took some great shots here although he took better ones around the corner from the bridge. Either way, the Tetons are spectacular.

Everyone stops here for a photo opportunity and no wonder. The last time through here is was sunny and spring. This time, fall is in the air and the ground was turning color. Didn’t stay long since a storm was moving in on us quickly.
