Wilderness and Columbine Falls

Wilderness and Columbine Falls in Grand Teton National Park is so large that it's visible from many lookouts in the surrounding area of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. With 250 feet of waterfall, it is as dramatic as it is hard to access, requiring a boat trip, a hike, and a climb to get there. But because it can be seen easily from a distance, that’s where most people admire these snowmelt-fed falls.
