These days, government from most countries are under pressure to cut costs.  Economy is rather bad since so long! When you are visiting and taking pictures in National Parks you are leveraging the value that you own.  Keep doing it or start doing it

I have been to Grand Teton National Park and the beauty of this park is overwhelming. All the work needed to maintain these infrastructures and services is amazing.  The great Peoples that share the beauty of the park and respond to our questions skillfully are role model.  The entry fee of 25$ for one car/one week is a steel!  By going to National Parks and paying the fees associated to it you are telling the government that this is of great value to you, the tax payer. By taking pictures of National Parks and posting them online you are attracting more people to do the same and this in turns contribute to the National Parks health.

A single day in a National Park is not enough.  Plan a whole week!

I spent a full week in both, Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Park.  The wonder I have seen is just extraordinary.  Wildlife is abundant, mountains, lakes, streams, waterfalls and geysers are amazing.  The pedestrian network is extensive and will respond to all needs and health conditions.  You will find wooden walkways with occasional stairs along with hiking and climbing trail.

On this picture we are on Mormon Row.  Mormon row is crossing Antelope Flats Road which leads to highway 89.  Multiples abandoned wooden houses and farms are still seen on Mormon Row.  Mormons came from the south to build this little community back in the early 1900s.  Mormon Row is on the National Register of Historic Places since 1997.

Mormon row is a great place to take pictures.  The Grand Teton in the background and the farms or old abandoned house in the foreground are so captivating.
