The spectacularly beautiful landscape of wildlife with crystal clear lakes is impossible to look away from. At Grand Teton, there are glacial lakes and beautiful mountains covered with plants such as heather, lavender and sage. We stayed at a Motel 6 for two days to explore the area and walk around Swan Lake and Heron Pond, among others. Jenny Lake is another classic spot that gave us a better view of Teton Park. We took beautiful photos and were surprised by the fauna. Jackon, Wyoming is characterized by a typical western atmosphere. There are lots of bars with grilled meat and others that charge admission with pool tables and cowboy spurs set up in showcases, as an attraction. There's also a famous place with elk antlers and arcades. Male elk migrate during the winter and in the spring they fight and lose their antlers during mating rituals before returning for summer grazing. So, here at this place they have 4 arches made of these horns that are great for photographs! But the most authentic thing is the dance floor in the "Million Dollar Cowboy Bar." The participants remind me of the old images of damsels and cowboys with cowboy hats and boots having a good old country dance.
