Moose in Teton County, Wyoming — The American West (Mountains)
Fire and Ice
Two of the most powerful forces in nature created these unique boulders. Millions of years ago, lava filled with gas bubbles erupted, cooled, and crystallized. Later Ice-Age glaciers carried rocks south from the Yellowstone plateau into today’s Grand Teton National Park.
Boulders provided by the generous donation of Gerald T. Halpin and the Lost Creek Ranch.
