Like the surrounding area, the section that is the Targhee National Forest is also really beautiful. A lot of great pullouts, some trailheads, and camping. The Snake River comes through here and it's truly stunning.

We passed thru the National Forest going from Yellowstone to Jackson Hole. Its a nice peaceful place to drive and to stop. There are a few small villages along the road which looked good too.

We visited the area adjoins the Tetons and loved the stunning beauty and peace of the forest. Probably an underrated area

Do you know of any interesting laces to lodge in this area? We're driving from Salt Lake to Jackson and are looking for something unique, like teepees or glamping to stay in? I saw a conestoga wagon resort in southern Utah and we are looking for something like that. Thank you!
