The Tetons are one of the shortest and most compact ranges in the Rockies, but their direct rise of over 7,000 vertical feet from flatlands on their eastern face is is unsurpassed between Canada and Mexico. However, the western slopes, falling away into Idaho, are much more gentle once below the immediate summit towers. Either way, the Tetons make one of the classic picture-postcard views.
The Teton Range is mostly within Grand Teton National Park, just south of Yellowstone. Tourists throng the Jackson Hole valley to gawk at the peaks and watch the large elk herds roaming the grasslands near the Snake River. In winter, the Jackson Hole ski resort, on Rendevous Mountain a ways south of the Grand, attracts skiers who want to challenge the 4,100 feet of steep slopes. Ski bums and powder hounds head over to the Idaho side of the range to ski at Grand Targhee, which often gets more snow than any other North American ski area.
Still, climbing is the quintessential Teton sport, and hanging out at the rustic Climber's Ranch campground in the shadow of the Grand for a summer is a rite of passage for many American rock climbers. The Grand gets its fair
share of attention, but other peaks--notably Mount Moran--offer equal challenges.

Man of Steel opened yesterday, a much-anticipated reboot of the story of Superman¡¯s origins. The title character is played by British actor Henry Cavill, who appeared at the June 12 U.K. premier of the movie in London sporting a Tom Ford suit and an Omega Seamaster wristwatch.
It has been reported that in 2005 Cavill was a contender to www.attrinity.com
play the new James Bond in Casino Royale, which hit theaters in 2006. Apparently, the producers found him too ¡°young¡± for the role at the time, and it was given to Daniel Craig. This is interesting because both James Bond and Daniel Craig are Omega ambassadors, though both of their model choices generally fall in the sporty Seamaster direction.
The version of the elegant Omega Seamaster that Cavill sports includes an annual calendar function. This replica omega Seamaster
addition to the automatic movement displays day and date, and will only need to be manually corrected on March 1 due to the differing lengths of February. One very notable thing about the Seamaster¡ªand every other movement now made by Omega¡ªis that it contains the Co-Axial escapement invented by Dr. George Daniels and serialized by Omega over the course of more than ten years to make it perfect for use in a wristwatch movement. The finely finished movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back of this officially certified chronometer¡ªwhich means that the movement has undergone a series of grueling tests performed by Switzerland¡¯s Contr?le Official Suisse de Chronom¨¨tres (C.O.S.C. for short), a non-profit organization established in 1973 in Switzerland to certify accuracy. The version that Cahill wears is housed in a 41 mm red gold case that is water-resistant to 100 meters. On a brown leather strap it retails for $23,900 in the United States.
