This was one of our favorite experiences during our whole vacation. Be ready for an authentic western adventure with a 5th generation Jackson Hole family.

The drive was fun as the kids loved watching the horses and the driver inquired as to where everyone was from and chatted with everyone. Dinner was very good: roast beef, barbecue, beans, biscuits, and a chocolate oatmeal bar that was an old family favorite of theirs. The Bar-T Five show was funny and the singing was great. Daily departures are at 5:30pm and 6:30pm.
