I've always wanted to see the Grand Tetons, and this morning I'm on my way, for a conference. Anybody been? I'm looking forward to posting pictures.

Harvey -- You are going to love the Tetons and Jackson.  Jackson can be a lot of fun.  And frankly, the Tetons are one of the  most beautiful places in the US.  Have fun, take lots of photos, and share them with us!

I'm with you on this advice! I never leave town without 3 extra charged-up camera batteries and 3 extra 8GB SD cards.

Hardware *and* mountain peaks!? I'm heading to my mecca!!

I'm actually going for a national human services conference - - in my day job I manage a portfolio of projects that build computer systems for state governments.

Living in Northern Colorado, Tetons/Jackson is our favorite *local* get away.  The scenery is incredible, and Jackson is a great town - shopping and good restaurants, what more can you ask?

Have a wonderful trip!

I've been to Jackson Hole a couple of times. Been a while though. We had to make a detour there on our honeymoon. We got to spend one night in Yellowstone before they completely shut it down due to the big fire, only entrance left open was the south entrance. Fortunately I had been in Jackson Hole skiing with my friends a few years before this and knew an out of the way hotel that actually still had 2 rooms available. Everything else in town was booked solid with firefighters etc.

Grand Tetons National Park is a section of the Rocky Mountains just south of Yellowstone known for it's rugged peaks, glacier lakes, and abundant wildlife - beautiful country. Jackon Hole is actually a ski resort area just south of the National Park with a lot of winter and summer activities. Jackson, WY is a town/city a few minutes east of Jackson Hole and south of the National Park itself - lots of lodging/shopping/restaurants supporting both the park and the ski area.

The whole area is generally referred to as "Jackson Hole". Hope that helps!

Not some of my better photos, but all I have from the digital camera.

you have to visit the Natioanal Parks. I have been living in National and State Parks for the last 20 years (minus 2 years stuck in a city feelling like a fish out of water not good). 16 years with kids.

I've been to the Tetons several times, and they're always gorgeous. A must-visit: Jackson Lake Lodge in the park, to watch the moose come out and graze in the evenings (binoculars come in handy).

Edit: At Jackson Hole they have fake cowboy 'shoot-outs' during the summer in the town square: http://www.jacksonholewy.com/events-town-square-shoot-out.php -- just the thing to watch before going for a beer at the nearby Silver Dollar Bar. :D

Have a wonderful time, Harvey, and take lots of pics for those of us who have to travel vicariously. I visited the Grand Tetons (and Jackson Hole) just before my 13th birthday. (My sister and her husband took me on vacation with them!) I still remember that wonderful trip 47 years later. The scenery is truly breathtaking.
