Shoot with care
Though you shouldn't have a problem later in the day, this spot can be crowded at sunrise.

About this spot
This spot was made famous by Ansel Adams when he shot his widely known "The Tetons and Snake River" here in 1943. If you are familiar with his work, you will immediately note that the trees have grown taller since 1943 and much less of the river is visible. Still, viewing the Tetons and the Snake River from this location is not to be missed.
