Standard Oil heir, John D. Rockefeller Jr., after visiting the then 96,000 acre Teton National Park, began buying private land in the Jackson Hole valley with the intention of expanding the park. Opposition stalled the plan until the 1940's, when President Franklin Roosevelt established the Jackson Hole National Monument. The monument and park were combined in 1950 to cover 310,000 acres of extreme topography.
Grand Teton stands at 13,770 feet and is the highest peak in the 40 mile long Teton Range.
Grand Teton National Park Pin measures 3/4''W x 1 1 /4''H.

I bought this pin ( and 9 others) and requested delivery to the UK. They were delivered quicker than estimated time and perfectly packaged. The pins are lovely and a great reminder of trips to the National Parks.
