This overview shows the Snake River that rises in western Wyoming and flows through the Snake River Plain. These natural patterns were created by a volcanic hotspot which now lies beneath Yellowstone National Park, the headwaters of the Snake River. Gigantic glacial-retreat flooding episodes that occurred during the previous Ice Age carved out many topographical features including various canyons and ridges along the middle and lower Snake.
In this natural-color satellite image, offered by Customaps, the river flows through Grand Teton National Park, an ecosystem where the same species of flora and fauna remain since prehistoric times. The origin of the name is disputed. The most common explanation is that "Grand Teton" means "large teat" in French and was named by either French-Canadian or Iroquois members of an expedition that was led by Donald McKenzie of the North West Company. Some historians disagree however, and claim that the mountain was named after the Teton Sioux tribe of Native Americans.
