We only have 1 day in grand teton national park, and we were thinking of either doing a hike (e.g. Jenny Lake) followed by white water rafting, or a float/rafting combo. Are there any similarities between the float and the rafting? Would we be missing out if we didn't do anything else in grand teton? Thank you
