We stayed the night in Jackson before taking the drive by tour of Grand Teton. Jenny Lake was a very nice foreground for killer shots of Grand Teton mountains. lots of easy trails from parking lot to shore's edge. Beautiful lake.

Apparently this was once a very private spot. It is now a very popular stopping spot with beautiful views of a crystal clear lake.

This little side trip offers a close up view of Jenny Lake and the Tetons. Great photo ops for those who enjoy them. You might see some wildlife up close and you for sure we see tourists so drive alertly.

A beautiful lake with gorgeous views that made every moment picturesque, absolutely a must see. The hiking was good, not as breathtaking as the views, and was absolutely stunning all around.

Hello, Jenny Lake boat shuttle closed for the season on 9/11. You should be able to rent a canoe in the town of Jackson though and launch at the boat ramp at Jenny Lake.
