Moose, Wyoming: Southern Entrance to Grand Teton National Park
The tiny town of Moose, Wyoming, is home to giants. Towering over the ranches and herds, Grand Teton and Mount Owen look down on the town from more than 12,000 feet above sea level. Part of the Cathedral Group in the Teton Range, the mountains provide a dramatic welcome for visitors; it's fitting since the Tetons are the main attraction in Moose. The hamlet is situated at the south entrance to Grand Teton National Park, surrounded by natural beauty.
In town, The Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center brings themes of people, place, and protection together through exhibits on the area's wildlife and the park's history. Just over a mile away sits the famous Chapel of the Transfiguration, which is known for its stunning views of the mountains.
