Oxbow Bend, a Snake River meander, may not be the only place to watch wildlife in Grand Teton National Park but it is one of the most rewarding. The slow moving waters of this crescent-shaped stream are home to river otter, beaver and muskrat as well as a variety of waterfowl including the sandhill crane and trumpeter swan. Moose and elk often browse here in the late afternoon. Bear are frequently spotted here in the early morning. But what makes wildlife watching at Oxbow Bend truly unique is the spectacular backdrop. Mt. Moran graces the west. Vivid reflections make for picture perfect viewing.
