I count the Teton Crest Trail among my top 10 favorite backpacking trips, and two camping areas on it among my list of top 25 favorite backcountry campsites of all time (although, honestly, other spots where I’ve pitched a tent in this park would make almost anyone’s list).

    I used to live 45 minutes from this beautiful scenery and my only regret is not getting out there more often. Some of the prettiest country I have ever seen. Thanks for the post
