What one was better? If you only had time to see only one park what one should you choose? I must say if you are traveling that far and with the parks so close together, take the time to at least get in the highlights of both parks. It was quite the debate on our trip on which park is the absolute must see. My husband Mike was drawn to Grand Teton due to the awesome mountains and the famous Moulton Barn, while I thought Yellowstone won out hands-down due to the varied landscape and animals. Mike’s mom and her husband have gone to both parks as well and it was a similar debate with his mom preferring Yellowstone and step-father choosing the Tetons. I can tell you with 100% certainty you can’t take a bad picture of the Tetons or at Yellowstone, nor does any image you’ve seen do them justice. The scenery is beyond description. It’s one of those places you MUST see in your lifetime.
