Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
Less well known than its sister mountains in the Teton Range, Teewinot is in many ways just as dramatic and inspiring. It also exhibits the geologic forces that carved the valley below it with glacial moraines in its lower elevation, themselves punctuated by a cascading stream, Broken Falls, carrying water that hours before had been snow on the peak hundreds of feet to the valley. A part of the Cathedral Group of mountains, Teewinot was first ascended in 1929 by geologist Fritiof Fryxell and ranger Phil Smith, the year that a small Grand Teton National Park was created. Teewinot, one of the few Native American (here, Shoshone) names still used in the Tetons, once applied to the whole mountain range. Mountaineer / philosopher Jack Turner titled his meditative book on the mountain range: Teewinot. The word is more than a mountain.
