Exploring America

Grafton, Varmont:Grafton is one of the prettiest villages in Vermont. Many of its beautiful old buildings have been lovingly restored by its residents and the Windham Foundation, so what you see today looks much like it did years ago. Grafton’s uniqueness, however, comes from being a real town - not a museum-like town - with its citizens being its most valuable resource. It is a vibrant community, still holding the traditional Town Meeting for government, with participation from a wonderfully diverse population of 600 people. Come walk our village streets. Picnic by a covered bridge. Visit our shops, galleries and museums. Linger a few days and you will see the beauty that surrounds us in these hills and feel the peace and quiet charm.


Jenny Lake in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming:Jenny Lake, formed by melting glaciers about 60,000 years ago, is a beautiful blue mountain lake set in the heart of Grand Teton National Park, at the base of Teewinot Mountain. On the west side, the lake touches the Teton Mountain Range. The lake is about 260 feet deep at the deepest point.
Jenny Lake is the starting point for numerous hiking trails in the area, including Inspiration Point and Hidden Falls. There is a 6.6-mile long trail that winds around the entire lake.
