The Teton Range of the Rocky Mountains extends some 40 miles in a north-south direction through Wyoming. The name originates with lonely eighteenth century French Canadian fur traders who saw on the peaks trois tetons ("three nipples"). The scenic summits were photographed by Ansel Adams and served as the backdrop of Westerns such as John Wayne's first film, The Big Trail (1930), and the classic Shane (1953), becoming archetypal in the process.
