The Three Tetons
The giant peaks to the southeast were
famous early western landmark known
to fur hunters and mountain men.
Perhaps as early as 1819, French-speaking
trappers were calling them the Trois Tetons -
- the three breasts. More prosaic English-
speaking montain men named them the
Pilot Knobs, but the romantic French
name stuck. This is one of the finest
views from which they were seen by
the men who named them.
