Nice small town. The arch over the street and the crosswalk are fun. Be sure to stop and visit some of the local merchants.. Several are well worth the stop.

This arch amazes me every time we visit and the amount of antlers that it took to build it is in itself quite a labor of love. lt has endured many, many cold winters, and still remains standing. Worth the stop to take a picture...More

We were on a day trip over in Soda Springs and decided to come back thru Montpelier to Afton/Thayne area where we are staying. This is awesome.

In the center of Afton, it’s hard to miss. Are all these antlers really real? Cool photo opportunity, but I liked the elk horn arches in Jackson better.

This is something a bit different in the centre of town, well worth a few photos, there is a cross walk adjacent to it and be sure to visit the Swift Creek Trading Company also named Elkhorn Mall which has some great gifts and souvenirs.

I was passing through Aston and this arch was really something to see. I stopped for a couple of photos to add to my album of cool things on the byways of America.

I drive under it nearly daily. Super cool. I am pretty sure I am famous because I am sure in a lot of travelors photos. I always try to wave as I go by.

I enjoy small communities and this was no exception. Although, I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to see the Arch, it was a novelty to see such a thing crossing the main street through the center of town.
