It is difficult for me to imagine a more iconic Western scene than horses grazing beneath the Teton Range. Growing up in Wisconsin, the Rocky Mountains have always symbolized the West to me. Prior to leaving Seattle on my trip to Grand Teton NP, a coworker of mine asked where I was planing to go. I responded, "I'm going out West." He then reminded me that I live in Seattle and really could not get much further west than I already was. I laughed, recognizing he had a very good point. However, to me, the the Rockies will always epitomize the West.
