360° VR Panoramas of Yellowstone and Northern Wyoming
The Gros Ventre Mountains
Bridger-Teton National Forest, Wyoming

The Gros Ventre Mountains flank the east side of Jackson Hole. Not nearly as dramatic as the Teton Range, they tend to be overlooked. A road leads east past the Gros Ventre landslide of 1925 and the lake that it created. Further east brilliant red badlands contrast with the otherwise green and gray mountain landscapes.

Several times I have found uncrowded camping up the Gros Ventre River when the national park was full up. The south side of the Gros Ventre Range is accessed from the highway between Pinedale and Jackson.
