What to Pack for Grand Teton National Park

The spring months of March, April and May are quiet at Grand Teton National Park. You can feel hints of spring in late March and early April, but each year is different. At any time in the late spring there may be snow and lakes still frozen, especially close to the base of the Teton range. The higher up you go in elevation, the more winter holds on!
