"These peaks have been called the Cathedral Group...more evident here than in many of the great cathedrals of men is the Gothic note. It is seen in the profiles of the countless firs and spruces congregated like worshippers on the lower slopes; it reappears higher in the converging lines of spire rising beyond spire; it attains supreme expression in the figures of the peaks themselves that, towering above all else, with pointed summits direct one's vision and thoughts yet higher."
The Tetons - Interpretations of a Mountain Landscape
Fritiof Fryxell served as Grand Teton National Park's first ranger naturalist. As geologist, teacher, and mountaineer, he developed public education programs, trail maps, and safety rules for climbers. Fryxell's publications stand as classics of explanation and eloquence.
in 1929, Congress established Grand Teton national Park to protect the heart of the Teton Range. In 1950, the park was expanded through the addition of most of this valley called Jackson Hole.
