Dive, Hike, and Swim

Just below Teton's Death Canyon, on the eastern shore of Phelp's Lake is a 20 foot boulder sitting all by itself above deep water. It's almost if God said, "Those hikers will need a break. Let's give them a diving board and a swimming hole." There are not a lot of swimming holes with this kind of view either.

The hike to get to the rock is about 2 miles each way.
