The View From Driggs

Backside of the Grand Tetons – Driggs, Idaho

There was a time when we seriously considered living on the backside of the Grand Tetons, in Driggs, Idaho. The area has a lot going for it, but I think our interest there would have been better served when we were younger. Now that we’re retirement age, dealing with heavy snow doesn’t have the appeal that it once did, and dealing with snow-crazed skiing enthusiasts in the winter is a bit wearing.

The Rear View

Backside of the Grand Tetons – Driggs, Idaho

The front side of the Grand Tetons is one of the best known and most photographed landscapes of the American West. However, the back side is just as beautiful and has far less tourism associated with it. This is the view I was accustomed to seeing when I was growing up in eastern Idaho, whenever we would drive north of town the Tetons would appear in all their glory in the distance from behind a nearby foothill.
