Grand Teton National Park is an almost pristine ecosystem and the same species of flora and fauna that have existed since prehistoric times can still be found there. More than 1,000 species of vascular plants, dozens of species of mammals,and nearly 300 species of birds. Due to various changes in the ecosystem, some of them human-induced, efforts have been made to provide enhanced protection to some species of native fish and the increasingly threatened whitebark pine. Grand Teton National Park is a popular destination for mountaineering, hiking, fishing and other forms of recreation. This park offers some of the most incredible photography opportunities as the abundant wildlife are found in nearly every area. Moose, elk, grizzly bear, black bear, pronghorn, wolves and coyote, fox and beaver, just to name a few, are seen frequently throughout the various parts of Grand Teton. Fiery sunsets and golden sunrises only add to the beauty and diversity of this park.
Moulton Barn is the iconic view of the Grand Tetons. Today, two picturesque barns highlight Mormon Row. Settlers John and Thomas Alma (T.A.) Moulton built these barns on adjacent homesteads. After nearly 30 years of working the land, John replaced his log home and barn with a new carpenter-constructed, pink stucco frame house and impressive, two-story gambrel barn north of Antelope Flats Road. South of Johnís homestead, T. A. took over 30 years to build his gable-with-shed style barn. Photographers from around the world stop by T. A. Moultonís barn to capture this iconic historic structure with the Teton Range in the background
