Grand Tee-tän that is, not Tee-tun or any other variation.
The reason I’m even bringing this up is because I heard the name being pronounced many different ways throughout the day. So much so that my girlfriend and I couldn’t even figure out what the name of the park actually is. We finally heard the right pronunciation at the park itself when one of the rangers gave us tips and what to do while passing through on our way to Salt Lake City.
We didn’t plan on going to Grand Teton National Park but it seemed like the logical thing to do while trying to get out of Yellowstone. We were headed south anyway so why not? Like all national parks, it’s absolutely gorgeous. I don’t know that I would take a special trip to visit but definitely worth seeing in passing. It reminded me of Switzerland for some reason.
I thought the highlight was our lunch at the Jackson Lake Lodge that has the most amazing view.
