This view of the Teton Range at sunset is located at Snake River Overlook, made famous by Ansel Adams while he was employed by the Department of the Interior to take photographs of America's national parks. Peaks shown in the image include Grand Teton, Mt. Owen, Middle Teton, Nez Perce, Disappointment Peak, and Teewinot. Grand Teton National Park which was established in 1929 by President Calvin Coolidge, is located in the Jackson Hole valley of Wyoming. It is connected with Yellowstone National Park to the North via the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway. The park owes much of existence to Rockefeller, who believed so strongly that the Jackson Valley needed to be preserved, that he purchased large portions of it, before turning control over to the Federal Government for conservation.
