The view from the Visitor's Center and the nearby overlook were wonderful. There is some construction of a new Visitors Center now underway. Center staff are very helpful and professional. There is also a nearby convenience store specializing in camping supplies that is very handy.

One of the most beautiful places of the entire trip. We were lucky that the mountains were covered in snow. We were able to catch some great sunset pictures from the Coulter Bay boat dock. They have a great restaurant, visitor center and gift shop.

This is one of the wonderfully picturesque lakes that you'll find in Grand Teton NP. There are many places to stop, get out and take some fabulous photos of the lake with the mountains behind. Bigger than Jenny lake and equally stunning.

This is the largest lake in the park and quite picturesque. With many access points, you can frame different photographs, with endless variations, including the use of lake reflections of the mountains.

We stayed at Signal Lodge which is right on the lake. Our balcony had the full view of the lake. We enjoyed the sunsets and sun rising with the lake and mountains.

I believe there is a bike path that starts at Jenny Lake and goes all the way into Jackson Hole. We spent most of our time in that area kayaking so we didn't really investigate the bike paths. Hope this was helpful.
