Grand Teton The Grand Teton National Park is south of the famous Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA. It takes its name from the magnificent Grand Teton mountain range on the east side of the park. It became a national park in 1929, after John D Rockefeller Jr bought up land in the area and turned it into a National Park. The origin of the name ‘Teton’ was probably given by the French trappers in the area. ‘Teton’ means breasts in French. The age of the Teton Range is only some 9 million years ago. Although some material of the range date back to 2500 million years old. The Teton Range is some of the youngest mountains in the world. The nearby Rocky Mountain is 70 million years old. The Grand Teton National Park is located in the heart of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, one of the largest intact temperate zone ecosystems remain on the planet. Click to end
