If you have never heard about Grand Teton National Park, I will sing the details to you, my friend. Grand Teton National Park is a United States National Park located in Teton County in Wyoming. The park has major peaks of the 40-mile-long Teton Range and the Jackson Hole. By the way, Jackson Hole is the valley floor between the Teton Mountain Range and the Snake River which is located alongside the border of Wyoming and Idaho. *winks* Anyway, Grand Teton National Park is a well-liked destination for mountaineering, hiking, fishing, and other recreational activities. As stated in Wikipedia, “the park has several National Park Service-run visitor centers, and privately operated concessions for motels, lodges, gas stations and marinas.” As quoted by Jessica Smith, Angela Hyatt says, "Grand Teton National Park is arguably the most awe-inspiring alpine climbing destination in the lower forty-eight states.”

Another rock climbing destination that you should visit is located in Europe, the Rock of Gibraltar. Gibraltar Rock is a “monolithic limestone promontory located in the British overseas territory of Gibraltar, off the southwestern tip of Europe on the Iberian Peninsula.” This destination is known to be one of the Pillars of Hercules. It is also identified to the Romans as Mons Calpe, the other pillar being Mons Abyla or Jebel Musa on the African side of the Strait, as cited in Wikipedia. “In ancient times the two points marked the limit to the known world, a myth originally fostered by the Greeks and the Phoenicians.”
