Description:

U.S. #C147
2009 98¢ Grand Teton National Park
Scenic American Landscapes
 
Issue Date:  June 28, 2009
First City:  Washington, DC
Printed by: Ashton-Potter (USA) Ltd
Printing Method: Photogravure
Perforation: Serpentine die cut 10 ¾
Color: Multicolored
 
Located in northwestern Wyoming, Grand Teton National Park was established in February 1929 to preserve the Old West character of the region. While government officials sought to protect the area’s natural scenery, local ranchers believed the park’s establishment would reduce their grazing land. 
 
When President Franklin D. Roosevelt more than tripled the National Park in 1943, the ranchers feared it would ruin their way of life. One rancher claimed, “It may be a monument to Ickes [Interior Secretary Harold Ickes], but it’s a tombstone to me.” In response, the ranchers arranged a 500-cattle drive across the park land. The ranchers eventually accepted the park, as a post-World War II boom brought tourism to the area.
 
Today’s visitors enjoy 200 miles of hiking trails, white-water rafting, parasailing, and horseback riding. On summer evenings, there is an old-style gunfight in the Jackson town square. The park is also home to a wide variety of plants and wildlife, including 300 species of birds and the native Snake River cutthroat trout.
 
At 13,770 feet, Grand Teton is the park’s highest peak. Grand Teton is French for “large teat.” This name may have come from French-Canadian fur traders of the North West Company. The mountains also may have been named after the Teton Sioux tribe, who have lived in the area for a long time.
