Across the valley, the Teton Range rises abruptly from the valley with no foothills to obscure your view. Glaciers lie sheltered on the northeastern flanks of the highest peaks including the Middle Teton and Teton glaciers. Climate change is causing these glaciers to retreat. Smaller glaciers are retreating more rapidly than larger glaciers. Along the valley floor, conifer and cottonwood trees line the Snake River as it cuts through the sagebrush flats.
