Grand Teton National Park is one of Wyomings most stunning travel destinations. It is located south of Yellowstone National Park and a 45-minute drive north of the town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

The park has 310,000 acres of valleys, mountain meadows, alpine lakes, and stunning views. It was established as a National park in 1929, with a sizable amount of land donated by John D. Rockefeller. Today it has over 1,000 drive-in campsites and 200 miles of hiking trails.

The John Moulton Barn (pictured above) is one of the most photographed places in the park. The 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.

The American Bison, more commonly known as a Buffalo, are easily spotted in Grand Teton National park. In the 1700’s and 1800’s the buffalo were hunted to near extinction By the 19th Century the buffalo population had dwindled to only 900 animals. In 1905 a significant conservation effort began, and today nearly 150,000 buffalo live in national parks and on private land.
