Bokeh in Grand Tetons National Park, Wyoming

There are turnouts at specific points of the road in Grand Teton National Park where people can pull their cars and enjoy the magnificence and beauty of the Grand Tetons. This one captured from the Potholes turnout.

 

The Teton Range is a mountain range of the Rocky Mountains and is part of Grand Teton National Park. Early French Voyageurs used the name "les Trois Tétons" (the three breasts). One reason the Tetons are famous is because of their great elevation above their base. Unlike most mountain ranges, the Tetons lack foothills which can obscure the view. This is due to the fault zone being at the base of the range. The Tetons rise sharply, from 5,000 to nearly 7,000 feet above the valley floor. -- www.wikipedia.org
