We really enjoyed our visit out to the flats - abandoned houses, buffalo (bison to us limeys!) wandering free, the Tetons in the background and of course THAT barn. Tip - do NOT get close to the buffalo -the warnings don't lie and we saw people (and their children, believe it or not!) ridiculously close. These photos were with a... More

This was a good drive for those who want to see animals while staying safe in a car. We saw deer, bison, and a bald eagle. There were plenty of stops along the way and I was able to dash out of the car to take some wildlife photos. Keep in mind, that the animals are dangerous so my ill-conceived... More

Take your time and dress warm. It can be chilly out on the flats. All times of day are great but evening will give you best sunsets.

We saw a lot of Buffalo and really enjoyed Mormon Row. Great info on the Mormons settling in that area.

We ended up going through Antelope Flats several times during our week long stay in the Jackson area. We could always count on seeing herds of bison and lots of pronghorn. We had our closest encounters with the bison on these roads including having bison cross in front of our car. If you are back this way, consider going up... More

Just a short drive from Jackson, this area is a must for wildlife photographers. We saw several groups of pronghorn, a large herd of bison, bald eagles and, from the highway nearby, a bull moose, all in broad daylight with the Grand Tetons as a backdrop. Viewing varies by the season. When we returned later in the month, most bison... More

It was interesting going down this road to find the remnants of the Mormon Row settlement from the late 19th -early 20th century in the area. The Moulton Barn, originally belonging to one of the Mormon families who settled in the area, has become an iconic symbol of the settlers and of the Teton mountain range, which is its backdrop....

We enjoyed seeing all of the buffalo and antelope along this stretch of the highway through the Grand Teton National Park. Go down this road to get to Mormon Row for the quintessential picture of the Teton Range (do not try to drive in from the Gros Ventre Junction road...very rough, dirt road).

Good view of the Grand Teton with the houses along Mormon Row. Possible chance to see wildlife along the road.

This is a great place to see antelope. They are beautiful and it's pretty close to Jackson. We saw several separate groups of antelope.
