I know I’ve mentioned it in the majority of these winter posts. It’s ‘the spot’ on Gros Ventre Road. We spent so much time there, it was almost like we lived there. We saw it with fresh snow. We saw it while it was snowing. We saw it with days old, melted, crusty snow. We saw it with no snow. We saw big moose, baby moose, herds of bison, and a marten. This really was ‘the spot.’ The best spot. I loved this spot.
It’s not too far from the turnoff at 191 and it’s not too far from the Gros Ventre Campground, which I would highly recommend in the summer. You’ll probably know when you see it. There may be a car or six parked there already. It’s a popular spot and it is for a reason. It’s a popular spot for the wildlife safaris, too, also for a good reason. You’re almost guaranteed to see some sort of wildlife here. Almost. After all, it is wildlife, it will go wherever it wants.
That’s really it. I just wanted to share my love for this spot and some of my favorite pictures from the area. Maybe get you excited about visiting Jackson and the Tetons in the winter. I know I needed a little motivation to be excited for that, but now that I did it, I’m so glad. I wouldn’t want to do it every year, but I think everyone should visit at least once even if it’s just for a few days.
Have you been to Jackson or the Tetons in the winter? What did you think of it? Do you want to go? Have you been to Gros Ventre? What do you think of it?
