Grand Teton National Park 2017

June 16, 2017  •  2 Comments

Last week I made a trip to the Grand Teton National Park. This was my third trip and I couldn't have asked for better weather. The low temps were in the 40's and the highs were in the 70's. I decided on this trip not to camp at any of the campgrounds. I found a nice spot in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. To get to this spot you turn onto National Forest Road #30310. This road was located across from the Cunningham Cabin Historic Site off of Hwy. 26. I had a great spot with an amazing view of the Teton Range. The photo below is of the T. A. Moulton Barn. This barn is located north of Jackson on highway 191 past Moose Junction. You turn right onto Antelope Flats Road. Follow the road about 1½ miles until you see a north-south running dirt road marked by a distinctive pink stucco house on the left. You turn right and you will see this barn on the right. This barn is one of the most photographed barns in the United States.

T. A. Moulton Barn Facts

The T. A. Moulton Barn is all that remains of the homestead built by Thomas Alma Moulton and his sons between about 1912 and 1945. It sits west of the road known as Mormon Row, in an area called Antelope Flats, between the towns of Kelly and Moose. Now lying within Grand Teton National Park, it is near the homestead of Andy Chambers. The property with the barn was one of the last parcels sold to the National Park Service by the Moulton family. Often photographed (according to Flixter it is the most photographed barn in America), the barn with the Teton Range in the background has become a symbol of Jackson Hole. (Wikipedia)

Thanks Greg! Always a large crowd at sunrise, but well worth visiting.
