The Snake River
Situated on the banks of the Snake River, DornanοΏ½s Resort offers spectacular views of the Grand Tetons. Many donοΏ½t call it a vacation to Jackson Hole until they venture into the waters of the Snake River. Lying in six western states, the Snake River is one of the major rivers of the greater Pacific Northwest. Rising in western Wyoming, the Snake River is 1,078 miles long. Created by a volcanic hotspot that now lies beneath Yellowstone National Park, the Snake River Plain was created. The Snake River name was given when Shoshone Indians had made a sign in the shape of an S to represent swimming salmon, but the drawing was misinterpreted as a snake and the name stuck.
The Snake River begins in western Wyoming through the confluence of three headstreams beginning as a small river that flows west and south into Jackson Lake. The Jackson Hole valley is host to the first 50 miles of the river that meanders through the valley cutting between the Continental Divide and the Teton Range. Noted as the thirteenth longest river in the United States, the Snake River covers nearly 108,000 square miles throughout Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. A variety of species can be found along the Snake River including beavers, osprey, bald eagles, marmots, and moose.
