Watch a Sunset at Schwabacher Landing

Wyoming Schwabacher Landing

Added by Christina Adele Warburg

  • Gorgeous photography opportunity
  • Amazing backdrop of the Tetons
  • Great opportunity to watch wildlife

When you think of iconic Grand Teton viewpoints, Schwabacher Landing is at the top of that list. The mirror-like reflection of the Tetons is absolutely stunning and you will often find hoards of photographers here. It's still worth the crowds, and I would even go so far as to say its my absolute favorite place in the entire park. You have to experience the beauty there to really understand.

Along with incredible scenery here, is also the opportunity to wildlife watch. Beavers are abundant at the landing. This place is spectacular at all times of the day, but it really comes alive at sunrise and sunset. If you come to Grand Teton and can only see one thing, I highly suggest Schwabacher Landing.

One of my favorite spots in the park. I've had numerous great sunsets and sunrises as well the occasional moose or other wildlife.

What time is sunset in July? We are going to visit the area and would love to get beautiful pictures before the sun goes behind the mountains, and wait for the sunset itself.

As Christina says, this location has incredible views of the Tetons during sunrise and sunset. As a suggestion, follow the trail past the first pond and through some trees. You will find a great reflection of the Tetons in a beaver pond framed with some fir trees which makes for a great photo.
