Photo of the Day: View From the Grand Teton



This is yesterday's view from the summit of the Grand Teton in Wyoming. At an elevation of 4,199 meters, the Grand Teton is the high point of Wyoming's Teton Range. The Grand Teton is a particularly pleasing peak to look at, and it's a fun climb, which makes it a favorite of mountain climbers from around the world.

Ryder-Walker guide Porter Teegarden put on a big smile when she reached the summit. She and veteran trip leader Daniel Sundqvist accessed the Grand Teton via the Exum Ridge. The conditions were perfect, as you can see from the photo.

Now it's back to Europe. Daniel leads our Hiker's Haute Route on July 5th.
