Many visitors stop at the Jackson dam to take pictures, but if you continue up the road, you’ll find a pull-off on the lake side that affords 180-degree views of the snow-covered peaks mirrored in the pristine lake.

Jackson lake is gorgeous. The water is very cold but also very clear and has the Tetons as a breathtaking back drop.
