Take a Sunrise Drive around Antelope Flats

Antelope Flats, Wyoming

Antelope Flats is one of the most epic locations in the American West. You have views of the entire Teton Range and there is abundant wildlife. Access is easy throughout most of the year and makes for a great drive anytime of day.

From Jackson drive north on Hwy 189. After you pass Moose Junction (which is the entrance ot Grand Teton NP) you will see Blacktail Butte on your left. Drive a bit further and just beyond the butte you will see a right hand turn which is Antelope Flats Rd. Turn here and continue driving.

After several miles you will come to a junction with several structures on your left and a dirt road to your right. The structures on the left are part of the famous Momon Row barns. If you take the dirt road another mile you will find the TA Moulton Barn, perhaps one of the most famous barns in the world.

The Antelope Flats main road can be linked up to the Gros Ventre-Kelly Rd for a big loop. This will take you through to small town of Kelly and along the Gros Ventre River. A great way to spot Moose, Bison, Antelope and much more. Its a photographer's dream!

Overshot

Not complaining at all, this place is amazing. But all the photos and media I've seen of this location I guess my expectations were set a little high. Glad I was finally able to visit the area, however don't imagine going out of my way to revisit (social media seems to keep me up to date on the area). The light play on the mountains in the morning is worth waking up for.

Awesome Sunrise Spot

Antelope Flats is such a pretty place and when the sunlight first hits the Grand Teton and then barn, it's an amazing sight. Definitely recommend catching a sunrise here.

The Teton Range is indescribable to anyone venturing from the East for the first time. Definitely some awesome shots here, when we visited last summer, the peaks were cloud covered, but just as beautiful.

This ranch is not very well known at all, even by those who have lived in the area for years, but it's definitely worth the visit.

Night Photography at Mormon Row

While you may have seen the hundreds of shots of this place at Sunrise or Sunset, very few people come here at night to shoot the barns. Every time I have gone I have been the only one out there.

Winter Phototography of Mormon Row

Off the main Highway through the GTNP heading North from Jackson Hole, turn off at Antelope Flats road. You can drive in for about 1/2 mile, but after will need to park and walk in.
