Happy Father’s Day to all you great dads. ;-) Jerry had a wonderful day of adventure. We started out in Wilson, Wyoming. A friend told us about a great restaurant called the Street Food Stagecoach. They have a huge variety of foods on the menu, we had Mahi-Mahi fish tacos that were incredible with creamed shrimp tacos too. Both were delicious.
After Wilson, we went back to another part of the Grand Tetons. The Tetons National Park is huge and would take forever to see it all. We visited a special place called the T. A. Moulton Barn. It is a historic barn in the Mormon Row Historic District in Teton County, Wyoming. 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.
I can see why the town was named Moose, a lot of moose live in the area. We finally got to watch a huge bull moose eating reeds. I had to walk down by the river to see him, cars were stopped all along the road letting us know some wildlife was there. It was an awesome sight to see both the moose and the barn.
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 Flickr it is the most photographed barn in America), the barn with the Teton Range in the background has become a symbol of Jackson Hole. I loved the shape of the barn, it looks like it was designed to match the beautiful Teton mountains. After the barn we drove on to see Jenny Lake, another beautiful area in the Tetons. I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
