US Route 89 in Grand Teton National Park parallels the Snake River to the east and offers spectacular views of the Tetons. There are several turnouts along the road from which to photograph the mountains with the river in the foreground. However there are only a couple of locations where you can get down to the edge of the river.

A favorite spot for photographers is Schwabacher’s Landing. A short gravel road leads to a parking area at the Snake River. The view of the Tetons is accented by the trees in the foreground. It is particularly beautiful in the fall when the trees are dressed in fall colors. A short walk from the parking area will take you to a spot where you can shoot the mountains reflected in the still waters.

Schwabacher Road is located between Glacier View and Teton Point Turnouts about 16 miles north of Jackson. Look for a wooden sign: “Schwabacher’s Landing Road.”
