We always look for wildlife and this is the drag. We usually drive up and down and back and forth morning and evening. March we saw alot. Ellk, coyote, moose, deer, etc.... Great place to just keep driving and looking. Be sure you see the little town of Kelly too. Great views of the Tetons.

If you want to see moose in the wild this is your spot to come too! On the river banks early in the morning near the campground and enjoy!

Left our hotel before dawn and went straight to Gros Ventre river. Well we were not disappointed as we manage to see a moose crossing the water. With the early mist, it was just so spectacular. It really felt like a very special day indeed
