Just a breathtaking photo stop while in GTNP. I took photos in the spot Ansel Adams took his. What can I say? The view is beyond what I can describe in words.

Amazing view! Awesome photo opportunity if it's not windy. The mirroring effect is so gorgeous. Go early in the morning for water as calm as glass.

This was a personal highlight for my visit to the Grand Tetons given my appreciation for photography and Ansel Adams. All the sites are easily accessible for all levels of visitors, saw a few electric wheelchairs on the short paths as well. Don't forget to...More

This was my favorite stop in/near the Tetons. Even with a very busy park near the fourth of July, there were only 4 cars visiting Oxbow Bend when we were there, and I was able to explore the trails without anyone else around. Beautiful, and...More

This is one of the most beautiful locations in all of GTNP, and is a must see. Great picturesque photo opportunity. If the river is smooth, the mountains will reflect in it, but still beautiful at any time.

Go early and get your dream shot of Mt. Moran reflected in the mirrored water. One of the best photo ops...

We followed suggestions from several sources and got up early for sunrise at Oxbow Bend. It did not disappoint. The mountains reflect the colors of the sunrise and reflect perfectly in the smooth waters.

Go in the morning, go during mid day, go with your pet, go in the evening. It's a beautiful spot. Don't miss it.

This is such a beautiful spot. From fishing, wildlife viewing, photography or just zoning out taking in the views. I have loved this spot since I was young. It is worth a stop to take in the beauty.

Can't give you a name, but there ARE many outfitters in Jackson. I promise that at least two or four can easily accomodate you.

Hi, There are resorts close by. The closest are Signal Mt Lodge and Jackson Lake Lodge. No actual hotels like in Jackson. Signal Mt is cheaper than Jackson Lake Lodge but both are spectacular right on Jackson Lake in front... More
