Exploring the Cunningham Cabin | Grand Teton National Park

The Cunningham Cabin Historic Site is located just off HWY 191 in Grand Teton National Park. The location features a short, interpretative guide, which tells about the history of the John and Margaret Cunningham who settled in the valley in the late 1800’s.

When we visited, it was just after sunrise, so we had the location to ourselves. Brian and I really enjoyed the calm, quiet atmosphere before the chaos of tour buses descended upon the park for the day. I can’t imagine the isolation and solitude that the early settlers must have enjoyed here. It makes me wonder if they were as touched by the beauty of the landscape as those who visit the area today.

Here are a few photos from our cloudy morning of exploring.

  • Have been to Jackson at least twice, once to stay at the Jackson Lake Lodge and do some hiking, and a second time in the winter to ski. It’s a tough mountain and brutally cold if you’re unlucky with the weather. In the summer, I remember taking the ski lift to the top of the mountain and walking down. It’ about 12 miles. Downhill should be easy, but afterwards it was the sorest we’ve ever been.
