One Photo, One Story: Hiking to Garnet Canyon, Grand Teton National Park

By Michael Lanza

On a late-spring morning with plenty of snow still covering the ground at higher elevations, my friend Dave Simpson and I headed up into Garnet Canyon in Grand Teton National Park to attempt a climb of the Middle Teton. As sometimes happens in the mountains, events did not proceed quite as planned. While we did hike to well above 10,000 feet, snow conditions were softer and more unstable than we expected, and we saw seven wet avalanches slough off the peaks to either side of us (none, fortunately, threatening us). So we abandoned our original plan, but still enjoyed one of the premier dayhikes in the Tetons.

I’ll eventually share more photos from that hike in Garnet Canyon at The Big Outside. Meanwhile, see all of my stories about Grand Teton National Park and one of America’s finest backpacking trips, the Teton Crest Trail, and all of my stories about national park adventures at The Big Outside.
