With Mount Moran looming off in the distance in the early morning light, Oxbow Bend in western Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park is one of the most scenic spots in the park for wildlife viewing. In the early morning hours and around dusk, one can spot sandhill cranes, elk, moose, bald eagles, white pelicans, trumpeter swans, Canada geese, ospreys, and many other creatures.
At 12,605 feet, Mount Moran dominates the northern section of the Teton Range. Five active glaciers persist on Mount Moran, including Skillet Glacier and Falling Ice Glacier, both visible far in the distance.
